No Visa No Problem

Many days ago I have been lusting on the thought of traveling the world with me, myself, and my backpack (and friends if the want to come along). I have listed the places that I want to go to and researched the things I would need to enter each country. Being single, Filipina who does not own her own house or car, is starting up a business and earns money just enough for a few trips and necessities, it is very very hard to get approved for a visa. Proving the fact that I will not stay in a different country for good is very hard especially in the current situation that I am in. So I wondered, how will I travel the world?

The best solution is (at least for the mean time), travel to countries where Filipinos does not need Visa.

I was able to verify them one by one, and I have researched the good things to see in most of the countries.I have been meaning to post this for sometime now but with the holiday season and all everything is lagged.

I’m hoping I could go full circle, we are not as much as a loser as most would think when it comes to going out of the country, its just that our culture and our economic status limits the number of people that can go out and explore the world. But this will be my goal, I will travel as much as I can and fill the pages of my passport so when the time comes that I go to the countries that are stringent in giving Visas, I can prove that no matter how passionate I am about traveling I will always come back home to the Philippines.

**Countries in bold are countries that I have been to or will go to in the next few months**
