What could be better than having a month off to backpack Asia with your two best friends?
Traveling, as many people would agree, is the truest test of a friendship. Hence, being friends with someone and being able to hang around them 24/7 are entirely different things. Thankfully, I think I’ve found two girls who are my ideal travel buddies. All in all, my trip wouldn’t have been half as amazing if they hadn’t come along for the ride.
Best friends who travel together, stay together. 🙂
Backpacking Boracay, Bali, and Manila
After finishing up my teaching contract I was lucky enough to be able to take a month sabbatical. I started in in Manila and ended up in Bali. The trip was absolutely epic, and I got to share it with my two favorite people.
There were a lot of ‘wtf‘ moments we got to share together on that trip. From the drunken mishaps, to completely getting lost, to fending off creepy motorcycle drivers. But, we made it work, as friends do.
Some of my favorite moments from Boracay include getting a free meal made for us at a five star hotel, going all ‘2 girls One Bike’ on a motorcycle, and nearly dying as our rickshaw rolled back down a steep hill.
From Bali, there were the cute Australians (you know who you are), the silly hostel owners who let us sample all the weird varieties of Balinese chips at 3am, and bike riding through Gili before ending our day at one of the famous sunset swings.
