I funded my South East Asia backpacking trip with my savings then when Jon and I started living together, we always shared our expenses, from food, rent and everything (that’s the British way, in Tagalog “! When I met Jon, he had empty pockets and a 0 broken down motorbike.If I was looking for a sugar daddy, I must have been blinded by that magic white skin again!When we decided to pursue our around-the-world backpacking journey together, we both worked hard to build our initial funds! No matter what success we experience, people might still think it’s because the Magic white man got us here.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.
UPDATE: We’re engaged and getting married next year!Western countries have the range of incomes and living standards just like we do.If everyone was rich, who would clean the streets, or do menial tasks that no one else wants to do?British and most other westerners are raised to be very independent.Most of them leave home at the age of 18 and up until then they do household chores; guys and girls!
