“To travel is to move, to breath, to fly, to float, to gain all while you give, to roam the roads of lands remote, to travel is to live.”
-Hans Christian Anderson

We all know that this is where the journey begins. A journey towards a new life, new things to conquer, new zone, new environment, and new place to learn new things such as enculturation. Journey is not merely about having fun, spending money, bonding with your family or friends, and other more; we should look in a deeper meaning of it that it is another way to learn and experience different things. As a blogger, student, and a future educator I think it’s a must to go out of your comfort zone and explore or experience different things. This is where we will be able to experience education trip wherein we have while learning new things.
But first, let us all address the most basic or major problem that all travelers-wanna be have in their mind: “I simply don’t have enough money to travel.” According to Nomadic Matt, one of the top 50 bloggers about travelling, we don’t have to be rich to travel.
I subscribe to his idea that having an insufficient amount does not mean it hinders us from travelling to one place to another. Being a traveler, I think travelling doesn’t always literally means from Philippines to Canada or India to South Africa. It doesn’t have to be a from one country to another. Going out of town or going from city to province is also considered as traveling. As I said earlier, traveling should not be just about having fun but also learning; and based on my experience, I’ve traveled a lot to different places and I know in myself that I’ve learned so much especially learning the different culture of different places and their variations to one another.
I’ve been to a lot of places but I’m going to give or suggest 3 places which is my top 3 favorite where in it is also recommended by some top bloggers and journalist.
Laguna -Pagsanjan Falls
It is one of the biggest attraction in Laguna and there are two ways to get there: first, by taking a river raft and second, is through a vertical trek that will have you climbing up stairs and rappelling. Once you reach the falls, you can take a dip or simply enjoy the sight of the waters. It will both give you an opportunity to have fun and enjoy.
Pampanga – Clark
Pampanga is one of the most historical places in the Philippines, it does not only give you opportunity to have fun but also learn the pre-historic times and how the Spaniards lead the Philippines for such a long time.
Quezon – Kamay ni Hesus
Finally, is the Kamay ni Hesus in Lucban, Quezon where you can explore different things especially the Garden of Adam and Eve, learn what happen in Jesus Christ before his resurrection, reflect on your attitudes towards different aspects, and praise God for all the things he had done for us.
There’s a lot more to learn in life and travelling is part of it where we can learn while having fun. So why go out of your comfort zone and have fun and learn for the rest of your life.
