My name is 10, like the number, and I'm traveling the world NEARLY FOR FREE!

I'm a 21-year-old solo traveler from the Philippines who left home to search for home in other places. I enjoy immersing in local communities, learning about local culture and tradition, taking photos of my adventures, creating art, connecting with nature and telling stories.

I travel the world with my trusty backpack, spending as little money as possible along the way while searching for the most genuine human interactions. I go around by foot and hitchhiking, camping outdoors and staying in local homes. By doing so, I gained the richest experiences the world has to offer and proved that people---regardless of race, gender, religion---are inherently good.

After nine months of going around Southeast Asia, I have finally decided to create a blog; however, I do not have the proper equipment to run it, maintain it and document the memories that will be in it. At present, I only own a smart phone. I don't even have a laptop to monitor and maintain my blog activity, as well as search for more freelance gigs to support my life on the road. 

I decided to create my blog, because I realized the stories and the kindness that I have experienced on this trip from ordinary people can no longer be bottled up and kept within the confines of my memory. They need to be aired out. In my nine months of travel, so many families have open their hearts and hearths to me, so many drivers have taken me to my destinations, so may friends have integrated me in their circles. 

And their stories deserved to be out there. They deserve to be out there for the world to have faith in humanity again, for the world to believe that money is not the only currency that can keep us running. 

Any help, however small or big, would be appreciated. If you believe in the same vision I have gained in travel, please do support my desire to become a storyteller. As I've mentioned, money is not the only currency in the world, so helping spread the word and telling the tale would also be of great value! 

Many thanks!
