Pardon the lack of updates, I know I haven’t been blogging a lot lately. I’ve been pretty much busy with mostly my online job. My funds have been depleting and I need to stay in one place in order to gain more work hours to earn more money and keep this backpacking journey going.
I also got exhausted trying to keep updating this site since I have other blogs that also need attention. But all is still well and I’m still alive. 🙂
So where have I been to, lately? After I was back on the road, I went to Siem Reap for a couple of days and then proceeded to Singapore. After a few days there, I arrived here in Bangkok and I’ve been maximizing the time that’s been given to me before my passport stamp expires.
“Sacrifice something precious to gain something else.”
An old high school friend messaged me on Facebook and asked me where I am now. I said that I’m currently travelling and have gone to a few countries already. I was told that I’m living the comfy life because of my travelling. I guess a lot of people have this thinking, too. That I’m just going out and exploring and conquering different places according to where my money can take me. What they don’t realize is that the funds I have can’t take me far as of now. Facebook can be deceiving.
I only eat twice a day, I don’t stay in hotels. I’m actually stationary and I’m just preparing for the rainy days. Well, you have to sacrifice something precious if you want something else. This is what I have to do in exchange of being on the road. Not because I choose to, but I because this is what can keep me going until this trip will come to a stop.
It’s a matter of perspective and I prefer to look at the brighter side. It’s always been the case. I’m not sure if I may sound too idealistic but life can get pretty intense at times; and looking things in a more positive light helps in keeping my sanity intact. It’s my way of coping with the complexities of everyday living. I think I’m getting way off the point. haha.
The point is, I just like the fact that I’m outside the country and I’m experiencing life in a different city; eating food, and just being here. So to contradict why I started blabbering about my friend’s message, yes; I am living the comfy life.
I’m staying here for another week until I fly to another destination. Opportunities are appearing every now and then and I’m just working on a few things before I make another decision. I hope to get invited to some great Coop Travel or get a nice vacation at the end of this month.

I also hope to write more about my previous experiences in the countries I’ve been to as I start to get my blogging groove back. Keep checking in for more on my backpacking adventures and exciting stories. Stay safe everyone!
