I would like to wish all my American (and Filipino) readers a happy Independence Day!
You have probably figured out by now that the word “independence” means a great deal to me, especially during travelling. I urge every one of my readers to break free of the organized tour business and try travel on your own – trust me, it’s not that hard. And once you get a hang of it, you won’t want to be confined to an excursion or a tour group anymore.
Independence is what makes you a backpacker. It’s what gives you freedom to explore, and what’s a better feeling than that! So here’s to independence in every sense of the word – cheers!
P.S. You probably have noticed that lately, I have not been posting as regularly as before. That is because I am on a big trip in the ex-Soviet countries at the moment, and it is not as easy to make posts from my old travel laptop. I promise, I will get back to regular posting very soon.
