Traveling is so cool, we are able to see different places.Aside from the places you see, you learn to appreciate other cultures. Meeting different people is always what we are looking forward to. We always look for something exciting and interesting travel experience. So far he has found numerous interesting topics about cool travel. Jonel prefers to be away from tourist destinations. He tries to learn local dialects and languages , travel by plane and/ or by bus are his options. Food and delicacies are his inspiration to travel more. It helps him relax and keep himself focused. After every trip, you will be able to see him in his super saiyan mode. ( Jonel, could you be more elaborative about super saiyan mode? ) hihi. He enjoys photography, it gives him the liberty to shoot everything he likes.Taking pictures help him a lot in honing his skills to capture and preserve all the moments he was able to experience and in this way he could share it with the others.In other words ( mamatay nalang sila sa inggit)

Paoay Church Ilocos

This open-minded and adventurer depending on his mood likes to travel solo or in groups. There are times he wants to travel with his best buddies but under the normal circumstances he travels alone ( with matching background song “All by myself”)

For him being alone is just a state of mind too. (savor the moment) I think that’s his cup of tea. There are several occasions where he gets lost and directions. I can imaging getting lost and the exerience is different . You get to explore the place and perhaps thats the thrill of it.There are unforgettable experiences while traveling along is you get to encounter dialects from the locals . It’s actually a plus if the locals understand Filipino or Tagalog but what if they don’t. hihihi. That isΒ Β a different story. Filipinos in general are friendly and helpful so do not be afraid to mingle with the locals .

Again while it is so true that there are some concerns about the risk of traveling solo or in groups , the risk that is out there would not stop us from exploring different places in the world. ( isn’t correct Marivic?) Yes it happens anywhere or it could happen anytime but remaining alert and keeping your common sense can always keep you safe.
