I travel to get disconnected.

Travelling gives me a break from reality while still being able to live life as it is, away from the internet and my fast paced lifestyle.

There was a time when I went on a five day vacation to Palawan without any gadgets. Even though my digital detox lasted for barely a week, it was already a milestone for me and everyone else around me. My family members would continue asking me where my phone was, even after several episodes of me reminding them that I left it at home. It made me realise how attached we humans of the 21st century can be to these man-made devices. They’ve simply become a part of our LIVES. It’s as if we need them almost as much as we need to eat or breath. But I proved that theory to be a fallacy. I had no regrets of being able to discover the breathtaking island of Coron the way it should be — away from the need to constantly update everyone in the online world. Next time I travel, I’m going to keep up this tradition that I started. (For the photos, I’ll leave that up to the people who can’t let go of their cameras.)

At the same time, I travel to get connected. To get REALLY connected. With the absence of a screen in front of my face 24/7, there’s more time to make real connections. There’s no such thing as strangers, only friends you haven’t met yet!
