100 Days Journey


Hello! I’m Christel James Reola Betia aka JourneyingJames. I started traveling solo 2009 after I left my job as a highschool teacher. I am addicted to traveling even when I was still working. Since I wasn’t able to save money from my regular job I learned to travel with very limited resources, I walked or hitchhiked to dream destinations. I also brought with me hammock to save on accommodation.

On 2010, I embarked on a 14-day trip around Visayas region with only Php250/day (US$6) budget. Year 2011, I traveled around Mindanao for 16 days living on Php Php360/day (US$8). By the end of the year 2011 I felt the urged to top these personal challenges and start visiting all the provinces of the Philippines. Hence 100 Days Journey came to birth. I told myself to just go: 100 days backpacking the Philippines, non-stop, the cheapest way possible.

This is the product of that journey. A recollection of both mundane and unbelievable experiences during the 100-day journey. I hope this book would inspire the youth to travel and see the world and encourage everyone that money (or lack of it) is never a hindrance to following your dreams.

I invite you to join me in this 100 day journey. :)
