Ok, so they have more ‘free countries’ than us, but it balances out, because when they pay, they pay big!Also, if you travel in mostly Asian countries, having a Filipino passport has way more advantage than his, he has to pay more than me!UPDATE: We’re engaged and getting married next year!I will be getting a Long-term visa to visit UK but I’m not interested in getting a British passport or citizenship as what others are assuming because we don’t have any plans to live in the UK, as long as my future children will have dual citizenship then that’s great for us!Aha, so being warm and hospitable and loving towards your partner means that you’re a slave? I wonder if these people ever stop to consider that these feelings and actions are returned by the man.British and most other westerners are raised to be very independent.I’m not lucky cuz I’m with a white man – we are BOTH lucky to have each other cuz we deserve the best! Check out our DIY Travel Guides here and for cheap hostels around the world, check the list here.) This is also for all the Filipinas who are being judged for dating a Foreigner instead of our Filipino men!
Western countries have the range of incomes and living standards just like we do.
So maybe it’s actually foreign men who need the visa, not the Filipinas!
We Filipinas can also travel to any country in the world with our Philippines passport so why would we need them if we can already get things on our own!?
I even had five freelance jobs at the same time in Hanoi, Vietnam as we wanted to save more than ever! I want to be modest here, but straight to the point. This website was started by me, Jon wasn’t really into it, but with a little persuasion he joined in and started writing too. We both became yoga teachers and Ayurveda massage therapists because of my crazy idea of supporting our long term travels.
I taught English, yoga classes to children and even handled the Marketing Department of a western-owned company while in Vietnam, oh did I mention that I won a Vietnamese reality TV show? All of my teaching, volunteering and freelancing jobs have been through my own research, resourcefulness, and commitment.
If you’re traveling on your own, you’ll meet a lot of travelers – mostly European, and being a backpacker you shouldn’t expect another backpacker to take you to an expensive restaurant – oh and he’s British btw.
