We’ve had complete independence since 1946 people, get the grip!
Western countries have the range of incomes and living standards just like we do.
Aha, so being warm and hospitable and loving towards your partner means that you’re a slave? I wonder if these people ever stop to consider that these feelings and actions are returned by the man.
British and most other westerners are raised to be very independent.
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.
We Filipinas can also travel to any country in the world with our Philippines passport so why would we need them if we can already get things on our own!?I’m not lucky cuz I’m with a white man – we are BOTH lucky to have each other cuz we deserve the best! Check out our DIY Travel Guides here and for cheap hostels around the world, check the list here.) This is also for all the Filipinas who are being judged for dating a Foreigner instead of our Filipino men!Here are the most common misconceptions that I want to clear up – We would love to hear other Filipinas’ stories so please feel free to share your experience below !We both want to buy land to build our very own yoga resort in the Philippines.In fact, Jon keeps asking me about how he can get a permanent resident’s visa in the Philippines.Young western kids often have jobs when they are growing up, not because the family is poor, but to earn some of their own money and to get some real life experience and responsibility before leaving school.Jon even leaves the Do Not Disturb sign on the hotel room door because, ‘it feels weird having someone come and clean up after me! Not all White people are rich; this is a hangover of the American occupation.I’ve dated Filipinos before and was even in a long-term relationship with one!It’s pretty annoying when people say that “if you can’t find a good Filipino then just look for a foreign man.” This is also stupid; there are plenty of amazing, loving and faithful Filipino men all over the world.If you’re traveling on your own, you’ll meet a lot of travelers – mostly European, and being a backpacker you shouldn’t expect another backpacker to take you to an expensive restaurant – oh and he’s British btw.After few months of just keeping in touch on facebook while I continued my solo backpacking, Jon and I decided to be officially together, and we’re now together for almost two years!
