There’s a popular Filipino saying that goes “Huwag maging dayuhan sa sariling bayan.” (Don’t be a foreigner in your own motherland). I’ve always believed in this. Much as it is fascinating to be travelling around the world, I will never discount the beautiful places in the Philippines. I absolutely love long drives, FOOD, new adventures and discovering new things in different places.
Last night I came across this website that marks how much you have traveled in the Philippines—took the test and got the grade C+. Wow. C+??? And here I thought I was already travelling a lot, although I still have quite some places in my bucket list. What a great eye-opener and inspiration to save up, get out there, and marvel at the beautiful islands of the Philippines! Can’t wait!
It’s really cool, check it out:
My Lakbayan grade is C+!
