Since I am a kid I like travelling. Maybe because even inside the womb of my mother I used to travel. Shes a small businesswoman and her business is buying and selling and she used to travel back and forth to the city and the place where we lived. When I grew up we have to go to the city to study and to work. While at work I was able to attend to seminars and conferences here in our country and later outside my country. I was quite lucky as I was given the chance to travel to attend seminar, to be on scholarship and to travel on my own. Again, this month I together with some of my office mates will be sent in another country to do some observations/research work. Though it is quite tiresome, I like travelling. I got to see the places I saw only on magazines and internet. Domestically I liked also to travel by my own much more if there are promo fares to contend with. Do you like travelling and how often do you do that?

Yes, I like to travel too but not as often as I'd like to. It'll have to depend on whether I can get a few weeks off of my work and which months are available. But I have taken a 2 month long vacation to certain parts of Asia recently and I love every moment of it.

Thanks for your response. Its nice really travelling as it is also learning. We workers must do that to pamper ourselves. Too much work will make us dull if no relaxation at all.

I really love to travel. If I have a chance I will travel. but that is only if i have a chance to travel (time and money). I am not rich so I can't travel as much as i want to. but given a chance? why not i will grab it.!

Thanks for the response. I am also a regular worker and other than official and scholarship travel I was able to squeeze in to travel. Here in our place there are lots of promo fares that we were able to used for. First, you can try the different places where you live, the neighboring cities and the like and there are low budgeted busses or other mode of transportation you can avail of.

Oh wow! That's good to hear that you travel a lot. I envy you coz I love travelling just that I don't have chance to do so. But I'm too excited to be going to Taiwan later this year to travel with my husband for vacation! And thankful also that I get to travel in the places around Northern Luzon when I was in college during our choir concert tours. Enjoy life and travel more! Have fun!

Thanks for the response. I havent been to Taiwan but that will be my next year travel place plan. Good also that youve toured some areas in your place but by this time there will be lot of changes already. We just hope for the best. There are lot of promo fares being offered by some airlines companies.

Thank God for Cebu Pacific! I wish to travel at least 3x a year, that would be 2 locals and 1 international. For international flights (outside Asia), i would like to do this once a year. You must be so lucky.

Thanks for the response. Yes, there are some airlines companies offering promo fares and that is what I usually used. Once a year travel will be alright with me, but those office seminars and some scholarships a big bonus.

Thanks for the response. Honestly I dont know how to ride a bike. You have that strong stamina for biking. I used my three wheeled electric bike to travel but only city driving as it can only run up to maximum 50 mph. Travelling is educating and at least you can compare it with your own place.

Yes I love traveling to a lot of places especially here in the Philippines. There are a lot of tourist attractions here. I also like traveling to nearby Asian countries such as Hong Kong and Singapore to go shopping. There are a lot of cheaper stuff there. I do it at least once a year. I want to visit Korea before this year ends.

Thanks for the response. Its really nice travelling. No amount of books or readings can be compared to actual travelling. I heard about so many things about Singapore. Thats the place we have to go. And I hope I can enjoy our short stay there.

Yes.., but thinking of the difficult of travel(rush in the bus, condition of the road etc.) I do not wish to travel everyday.

Hi bagumbayan! You're lucky your job gets you to travel to different places. Well, my work also let me travel to different places but most of the times, those are places that are not tourist attractions. Although there are places I've been to that are quite beautiful and unexplored. I also like traveling but I don't get to do it much. Well, with work, I travel once in a while but traveling as traveling per se, you know, traveling for leisure and not for work, I can't do it much. I don't have that extra money and time for it. I wish I have because I really like going to different places and exploring different nature sites, different cultures and all that. My greatest dream actually is to travel the world.

I run a business travel call center and have worked in the travel industry all my life. I love it. I love to be able to travel around the world for free or a discount.

Traveling overseas is my top hobby. I have visited more than fifty different countries in the world so far in my lifetime. I am keen on visiting more of South America. I went to Colombia earlier this year, to Canada last year and to South Africa the year before. I usually travel on one overseas trip per year. I used to travel more often and for longer in my younger days. My favorite countries that I have been to are Samoa, Australia, New Zealand, Belize and the Seychelles. The cities I adore the most are Sydney, Cape Town and Vancouver.

I love to travel but my biggest problem is the time and money that it takes for vacations. I try to do it in a more savvy way and visit places where my various friends are living so that I don't have to pay for a hotel and it makes my vacations much more enjoyable for me. I get to see things that the locals find the most interesting (although I am such a sucker for tourist attractions!) I've gone to Hawaii to visit friends as well as North Carolina in the past year. I would love to expand my travels. I end up saving half my paychecks just for my next trip half the time. It's nice to get away and recharge my batteries and feel like it's all worth it in the end.
