I’m actually messing with you. Actually, my two-month trip to Southeast Asia and Europe was my first time BACKPACKING, but I’ve gone out of the United States in the past though. Most of them were for school trips, family vacations, spring breaks, or tours that involved my filming work. Speaking of school trips, I actually started an international study program at my high school that brought my class to London and Paris. That little experience was one of the very things that sparked my passion to travel.
Upon my high school graduation, I promised myself that I’d travel the world one day and now here I am traveling the world.
