Kumusta! I’m Bryan — a Filipino traveler. Fan of The Big Bang Theory and good food. The silent sam on the couch. An Apple buff. I was born in the Philippines and now a resident of Barcelona, Spain. Most of the time, traveling solo. Advocate for cheap escapades. Backpacker. Yep, Filipinos do backpacking!
Did you know that Filipinos are now part of an emerging global traveling class?
Latest trend shows Pinoys as one of the top Asia-Pacific market with the highest average number of countries visited by a Visa credit card holder (ranked as fourth). That's a good indicator that our generation is now changing — especially millennials — investing more on travel experiences over material goods.
I was never a big traveler, really. In fact, I didn’t take my first trip overseas until I was 23. That's 2 countries at one go — first border crossing from Singapore to Malaysia. From there on, I was hooked on backpacking. That strong desire to travel has grown even more including the list of countries I want to visit.
I started blogging in 2007 and shared my early adventures on a social travel site. Not for long, it went on hiatus since I moved to Spain. After seven years of establishing a career in Barcelona and a lifetime dreaming of traveling the world, I finally decided to continue traveling and start writing about it again.
