Back in the Philippines and I ate a disgusting worm Palawan, Philippines 🇵🇭 [December 14, 2015]: For the first time in well over a decade, I spent my birthday and Christmas in the country of my birth with my parents. - I’ve been fun-employed since leaving the US in October and I spent every minute of it preparing for my year long trip and getting my blog going. One of the most difficult things I had to deal with was my explaining to my mother why I was going to take a year off my life to travel around the world. - My mother is a wonderful woman but like any typical Filipino mom, she was worried that I was making a horrible mistake and run out of money chasing this whole ‘travel thing’. Bless her heart. She means well. Like any loving parent, she was afraid that her youngest would fall victim to the dangers of this world. - I had my mind made up and I was set to leave in less than 4 months. My mother and father were apprehensively supportive and I’m thankful they never tried to talk me out of it. All they asked for was for me to come back home at the end of it all. I promised them I would because that was the deal I made with my girlfriend. This trip would last exactly 12 months and not a day longer. I wasn’t planning to wander the world forever. - This picture was taken 2 days after my 28th birthday and I spent it in the Philippines’ 2nd most popular island of Palawan. I went on an adventure tour and tried my hand at a local delicacy - Tamilok, or woodworm. It was slimy, gooey, and covered in vinegar like Ceviche. It tasted, well, let’s just say I won’t be having another any time soon. - - GIVEAWAY: Do you want to win a $100 @americanair gift card? - Click the link in my bio to enter my super easy giveaway and be in the running to win one of two $100 gift cards!

A view from deck 10 on our world #cruise on Black Watch last night and again this morning. Experiencing some colder weather so our days of laying out in the sun haven’t gone quite as planned. Hoping for some sun tomorrow. What do you like to do on sea days. . . . . . . . #girlswhotravel #darlingescapes #dametraveler #travelgram #lovetotravel #openmyworld #flashesofdelight #traveldiary #mytinyatlas #exploreeverything #todays_shot #visualsoflife #travelshopgirl #myview #roamtheplanet #theglobewanderer #wearetravelgirls #visualsgang #ladiesgoneglobal #worldtraveler #girlslovetravel #globelletravels #travellushes #discoverearth #travelblogger #travelawesome #worldcruise2018 #aroundtheworldwithfred #blackwatch
