When I quit my job in the Middle East to start my backpacking journey, aside from the other reasons and lies I was telling myself and people around me about why I wanted to leave my corporate life, I actually left because I just wanted to have more time to understand myself, to love me and just to be with myself!
Unexpectedly, during a few days exploring Luang Prabang, Laos, I met Jonathan!
In fact, Jon keeps asking me about how he can get a permanent resident’s visa in the Philippines.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.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.After few months of just keeping in touch on facebook while I continued my solo backpacking, Jon and I decided to be officially together, and we’re now together for almost two years!I’m not lucky cuz I’m with a white man – we are BOTH lucky to have each other cuz we deserve the best!

This is also for all the Filipinas who are being judged for dating a Foreigner instead of our Filipino men!
