A lot of people in the Philippines have heard about “Inflation” so many times on TV, usually in the news whenever the reporters talk about the current economy, but never really paid much attention to it. At least not until it hit such high levels that it became very alarming. All of a sudden, people were talking about it. Some became “experts” overnight and started commenting on social media despite knowing very little about it.
I come from a family of OFWs. My father was an OFW Seafarer for most of his life, so were some of my uncles from both sides of the family, some of my aunts used to work as domestic helpers in Hong Kong and Singapore, and as an office worker in Bahrain. When I was growing up, friends and family asked me if I wanted to follow in my father’s footsteps and become a seafarer like him. My answer was always no. I had no desire whatsoever to work overseas or be away from my family. Fast forward many years later, here I am- an OFW.

I guess by now you know how I like to simplify things. Travel is no exemption.
When I travel, I try to not bring too many things. I only want to focus my energy on the travel experience rather than stuff.
Hello again, Tbilisi, where the culture is a cross between Russian and Middle Eastern with a European vibe but the language, food and wine are 100% Georgian.
