This Year's Craziest Adventure

The Pinay Travel Junkie is finally tying the knot! Okay, so this isn't really an adventure post, but I categorize getting hitched as one. For an independent, free-spirited, semi-nomadic chick, being a wife or a mom may seem too constricting - but since I am marrying my backpacking partner, I feel confident that we'd be able to adjust to our respective roles easily.

I mostly post my personal blogs on my other website The Pseudo Hippie, but since everything about our relationship is travel-related, I decided to write here instead. In a way, this blog will also introduce me to my (few) readers.

We met in U.A.E., a year ago through hospitality exchange network Couchsurfing. We were the only active members in the emirate of Al Ain. He was a researcher at U.A.E. University's Interactive Robots and Media Lab, while I worked as a front office attendant for Al Massa Hotel. Our short eyeball at Jimi Mall was followed by two weekly dates, then daily meetings. We were already exclusively dating (as if we had much choice in the neighborhood!) after three weeks.

Sick of living in a 'superficial neighborhood', we both quit our jobs and backpacked around South East Asia for six weeks. He proposed a month after that trip, here in the Philippines. Watch his proposal.

Three weeks left before the big day. Wedding theme is Filipiniana, symbolism of bidding goodbye to my citizenship (oh, he's Persian/Aussie by the way) - but never my character. I will always be the Pinay Travel Junkie.

"...but since I am marrying my backpacking partner, I feel confident that we'd be able to adjust to our respective roles easily." -Waaaah! How I wish I would marry my backpacking partner, too, someday! *wink*
