Welcome to A Traveler’s Heart Blog! My name is Christian Dee Usares come and join me on my exciting adventure to finding my own self through my greatest passion – traveling.
I have always wanted to become a traveler or be able to travel the world. It’s like it is what I am made for, it has been my passion for years. I may not know when or how but I know for sure that I will be able to travel the whole world and I want to share my story with you.
My family was struggling, I myself was deprived of a lot of things a normal kid would have, clothes, shoes, expensive bags and toys and as I grew older It opened my eyes to the reality that life isn’t going to be fair. So I started to make a bucket list, I made a list of all the things I want in life including a happy family and loads of cash and most importantly TO TRAVEL but I know my journey to achieving all the things listed on it is going to be hard. Though we are poor that won’t stop me from achieving my goals.
Since I graduated high school, at the age of 16 – I worked as a photo copy shop attendant, segregated wet plastic bags from dry ones, sold watermelon on the sidewalk and other things an under age kid would go through just to be able to help his family. I broke that chain, I started dreaming and aiming higher! Since I have the talent of being able to write and speak English fluently (though not perfectly) I decided to apply in BPO (Business Processing Outsourcing) companies and started earning twice the amount a regular school teachers annual salary.
At a very young age I get to support my family and myself financially. I admit it was still hard given the fact that I earn a lot because I had so many responsibilities and because I get to fulfill those responsibilities I thought I was finally happy. But there is something missing, something is lacking, something is not right? Then one time when an office friend invited me to go to the beach, I was so stressed at that time that I did not think twice and said yes to his invitation. I did not regret what I just did as it was the ocean breeze finally made me feel so fulfilled, relaxed and relieved from the intoxicating environment of the call center industry and that is when I realized that this is what I wanted to do in life, I was not born to just pay bills and die? I was born to travel the world!
I have taken the leap of fate and started traveling on my own or with friends for the past years and I have been doing a great job at saving up money to travel away from the city where I live in every once in a while. Enjoy the experience, the food, meet new people and hang out and eventually, travel abroad (fingers crossed)! I know this will be easy but it will be worth it! So please join me in my adventures and I hope to inspire you to do the same thing and travel with me if possible.
Hope you enjoy reading my posts. Hope to hear from you soon!
