You’re either born with a golden spoon, hardworking rags-to-riches dude or just lucky if travelling, dining or let me just say, spending is the least that you worry without thinking of how to fit your wanderlust calling versus your corporate schedule.
If you’re an employee, how many vacation leaves are you allowed per year (yes, with pay)?
Me? 15 per year = 1.25 accrued per month!
My attempt to wander through the 81 Philippine provinces and, by chances and will of the universe, to travel the world is guided by: (1) looking ahead – research on annual holiday calendar, (2) be wary of lean and peak season at work, (3) top months with lower number of bills to pay and (4) lastly, do not interfere with my child’s school or our mommy-child bonding activities.
So, what do I do when I cannot file for some time off?
Let me take you to my top, frequently visited food shops in and out of the metro. The list are growing since there are personal one time wonders favorites from the destinations we went to and some one-time-hit faves that wanderbud and I tried out. I do not cook! I repeat, do not cook! A recipe is the least that I could feature but may give a tribute to my beautiful mothers’ and my sibs’ specialties.
For an overthinker and with a wandering mind, I let myself be vulnerable at times. Sometimes, occupying my thoughts with other things like this blog often takes me to wonderful memories and stories that I find somehow inspiring. I am getting tired of introversion so coping up with it, by this blog, somehow connects me with like-minded people across the universe.
So, yes, with limited vacation leaves, there are still plenty of reasons to be inspired and inspire others in return. Keeping my fingers crossed that I’ll continue to be your partner while on leave or not.
