My 2014 started very slow yet was full of excitement, yes I planned to go and visit my families back home in the Phillipines. Holiday is booked for 3 weeks on March-April. I got 7 hours lay over in Shanghai so I took this chance to see abit of Shanghai. The experience wandering around to a new place gave me the surge of excitement. This was the start of my unstoppable wandering feet, and the time I discovered Solo Travelling. Looking back to my travel trails. I can say I am very proud of myself having the courage to travel solo and the best experience I had so far, meeting amazing people and made friends along the way.
