This was sponsored by the Cabinet Office, Government of Japan.

About the Blog…

          Teacher adventurer is a blog recounting my nostalgic experiences of my travel. I had visited many countries and territories already (about 17 nations) but still looking forward to navigating the world like a free bird- a citizen without borders.
        Traveling for me is a wholesome stress relieving, a feeling that I exist like the wind, the water and a silt that go where they are destined to go, believing it will end up to certainties somewhere else.


Advocacy and Insights of Traveling

I am an advocate of peace and environmental protection through literacy. I promote environmental protection and peace through literacy and cultural understanding.

I look at the world as a wonderful and interesting thing more than one could imagine. The difference that unfolds every creature, every culture, society and people make it enthusiastic to learn and reflect from. Experiencing culture and heritage through travel and immersion is a complete learning deeper than what is read on the book and internet sources. Bringing yourself to another dimension of you and experiencing other’s unique ways make your learning everlasting. This goes like “If a picture paints a thousand words, immersion inculcates unforgettable memories”.

I am a teacher traveler by heart. I’m so much interested in meeting different people, seeing different places, trying different cultures and traditions. It’s through diversity that binds the world to be stronger and flexible. With this strength, I connect to promote peace and cultural understanding.

I travel without sacrificing my classes. In fact, travelling makes me a better person and more efficient and more motivated person. I am an inspiration to my students from the expedition I had. I teach them how to appreciate their own self and respect differences. If I had a chance, I would like to bring my classes to another dimension of traveling beyond what we learn from the corners of our room.

With all of these, whenever we travel we see vast nature which needs to be protected from exploitation. Whenever I travel, I take the advantages of talking to people and inculcating  to them the significance of taking good care of the environment…


Financing my Travels.

I am not a high ranking teacher, but most people wonder why I am capable of  travelling  more than anyone else with same or higher position. Since 2013, I travel an average of 3-4 countries a year. So, how did I support my travels?

I got the chance of traveling  through many possible ways like scholarships and state to state programs (Japan’s Ship for South East Asian Japan Youth Program in 2013 and Israel’s MASHAV scholarship in  2016 respectively).

Ship for South East Asian Japan Youth Program is a diplomatic , cultural social integration that exists between Japan and the ASEAN nations bringing together 300 youth from Japan and ASEAN to live together on Board. In this program, they will maximize friendship through cross cultural understanding programs along with social and global issues. At the end, they will come up with a policy addressing issues with relevant solutions.

MASHAV Scholarship held in Jerusalem, Israel on May 22-June 10,2016.


MASHAV is Israel’s Agency for International Collaboration in education, culture, science and technology. It aims to train people regarding technology and research based methodology in teaching, training and agriculture..

Moreover, I can visit many places by lifestyle modification thru cost cutting and saving some of my luxurious lifestyle (like using  cell phone oppo instead of iphone).

Furthermore, I engaged myself to additional part time job aside from my DepEd teaching position (teaching in other private colleges during weekends) but prior to it, I  seek approved teaching permit from DepEd for legalities.

            At the same time, I can travel because of creativity and resourcefulness. I ensure that I travel at the lowest cost because I don’t travel if it is too lavish.

Therefore, scholarships, savings, extra income, multi-level marketing and innovation are my ways on how to support my travels.
