Nice venue, cool crowd and plenty of stories on the road. That is the best thing to describe Travel Massive. Travel Massive was held last night at B-Side, Makati. And we’re lucky to be part to this one of a kind event for travel enthusiasts.
Good company + good stories + ice cold beers = perfect night
Present were travel bloggers who shared their epic backpacking adventures in Europe, Asia and in other places that we may never think of going in an “open mic”. Discussions on couch surfing and its benefits for travelers. There were tips on how to meet people while on the road; like to smile and always be open minded. The talks really motivated travel in destinations that is not into commercial tourism. Most speakers said the we should never judge people and to keep an open mind. Travelers are also encouraged to do something in return to the community that they have visited though activities like books haring and volunteering.
There was also a discussion on surfing and the speaker gave the best places to start this activity. She also mentioned that you don’t need huge waves to start surfing.
The owner of Circle Hostel was also present he said he was inspired to put up a “real hostel” in the Philippines because of their good experiences abroad.
There were also games and winners received items for travel from sponsors.

According to Ian, the Manila leg of Travel Massive is the biggest crowd turn out in Asia.
And hopefully there will be a repeat early December!
