(rental composed of tour to capones + utensils. Tent rental is 300 per tent)
1800.00Php 266.67Php

0 30 before 30

Early this year, I chanced upon this travel blog from the sole sisters and ever since then, I was inspired to travel more and see the world. They also inspired me to make a 30 before 30 list. This list,similar to a bucket list, contains 30 things that you want to achieve or places you want to go to before reaching 30 years old. (I'm currently 23 so I still have 7 years to complete! ) Most of the items on the list are related to traveling as this is my current passion today. Some items are things I want to achieve or skills I want to learn before hitting 30. Hopefully I will be able to finish this list before leaving the line of 20s :)
