Had the travel bug ever since I can remember. Was travelling to Bulgaria in the late 70's ( with family obviously ) and having started work at 16 for a, then prominent travel agency, I was able to travel more widely and cheaply.
Found the Philippine bug in January 2011, been back 2 times since and will be back there again January 2013 for another 2 month stint. Love the people and the place ( Philippines ). Hoping to move for good in October 2013.
I always prefer to travel alone, it's a stressful thing and when I travel for holiday, I want to be my own boss, to do what I want when I want. Sitting by the side of the road with a cold beer watching the locals go by and seeing how things are in a small town on the outskirts of a busy city might not be everyones idea of fun for instance, but for me, it's heaven.
