How To Travel The World For Free

Traveling the world seems to be everyone’s dream. It’s definitely a dream of mine, too.

Unfortunately, my wallet is not that fond of this idea. Oh, if only I could travel the world for free.

Meanwhile, on the internet… Hundreds of #OhDani posts flood my feed. It all started with a popular afternoon TV show’s new season teaser. Now, its main character – Daniela Mondragon-Bartolome – has “traveled around the world.” I can’t help but get envious of this ‘Dani Girl’ for effortlessly doing so.

It was then that I started to wonder if I could do it, too. The countless thoughts lead me to a Facebook group that I had been a part of for a long time.

The group’s requirement is a travel photo but of course, I should also be wearing a red dress (‘di tayo papakabog kay Daniela).

I browsed through each and every photo and searched for the perfect shot to be able to achieve my dream of traveling around the world for free. A few hours after posting my request on the group, indeed, these people helped me out.

I simply asked them to bring me around the world just like Dani Girl and they surely did not turn me down. The results were beyond what I can ever imagine.

If I wanted to do it the same way she did, first, I had to BE her.

They enabled me to be in places I have never been to; to be in a single photograph with one of the world’s greatest landmarks. This is the life… or more appropriately, this is Brazil!

Who knows, traveling the world could even be my chance to meet my very own oppa!

Despite the tight schedule, I was also able to include a quick tour around the Philippines in my itinerary.

It only took me a few clicks and zero pesos to be around the world. Like, literally.

The journey did not turn out to be as complicated as I thought it would be as it can be taken in whichever direction.

It’s a small world, after all. All I needed to do was to take a few steps from here.

I am so grateful to have been able to join Daniela Mondragon’s world tour and be accompanied by the icon herself on the road to success!

I hope you enjoyed this adventure as much as I did. This is the only “world tour” I can afford for now, lol. Until then, let’s continue to dream and work hard to achieve our goals!
