I hear you and I feel you! Our passport isn’t the strongest but that doesn’t mean we cannot travel the world. Because we CAN! Visa issues are surely not the only puzzle we have to solve if we want to travel. The money, work, and other personal reasons are joining the sinking boat of hope to travel. But hey, at least we are one step closer to see the beauty of the world we live in. These visa-free countries for Philippines passport holder is a good way to start your around the world trip, even just one at a time!

So far, my Philippines Passport has taken me to 16 countries, from Asia to Europe, back in Asia, then back to Europe. Sounds fun isn’t it? It’s possible, that means you can too! >>Find out how I started travelling
