If so, then this trip is perfect for you. The top quality I am seeking in our travel companions is kindness and respect. Filipinos are known for being incredibly hospitable and joyful individuals, and we want to uphold these values throughout our trip. Racism and predatory behavior are completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated under any circumstances during the trip. Everyone deserves to feel safe, respected, and included, regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, or any other factor. Any behavior that goes against this principle will be dealt with immediately and appropriately. It's important for all trip participants to be aware of this and to treat each other with kindness and respect throughout the entire journey. Additionally, punctuality is crucial, so please be mindful of the time and avoid being late. We also want to ensure that everyone can enjoy the trip, so please do not burden your fellow travelers. Ultimately, the goal of this journey is to have a memorable and enjoyable experience, explore new places, immerse ourselves in our culture, and make lifelong friends. ✦ABOUT ME and WHY AM I THE PERFECT TRIPLEADER✦: Hi there, I'm Minrie, a proud Filipina who has a passion for travel, comfort, and leisure.
