BLESSED. That’s all I can say about my trip to the Philippines. It was my first time backpacking, but it was a nice experience. I learned a lot of things like riding a scooter, budgeting my money, and other things like how to wash my underwear (just jump into the ocean, just kidding). Coming into the trip I didn’t know what to expect but my travel partner, Danny, told me that I’ll be conquering a ton of my fears. Even after weeks of traveling, I still didn’t conquer my fear of him.
