"I am thinking, when should I do it? When I become old? No, I should do it now that I still have the chance and the strength."

That day marked another milestone in my life. It was a hobby turned into a necessity, a basic need. I think about it daily. It always occupies a part of my daily life thinking for my next journey. I keep looking at my map everyday and I keep researching for tourist attractions in town. I am obligating myself that it is my role to encourage everyone to appreciate our towns and not just to focus more on the popular tourist attractions.

And yes, this was the day that I took a greater leap of faith. I decided to start a solo motorcycle journey. It was  a test of courage and faith. I found out that I can make it!

Some are against with this and I understand their rationale. But I can't resist it. I am thinking, when should I do it? When I become old? No, I should do it now that I still have the chance and the strength.

It took me about 170 kilometers. It looks risky but that is all in mind. I learned new tricks, and the more I do it, the more I mastered the art of driving solo with a motorbike along the highway. It felt good.

Suba Sand Dunes of Paoay, Ilocos Norte
I think this is just a teaser for a greater adventure waiting for me. I know I am now quite ready to do a longer motorbike backpacking around Luzon, but yes, that solo motorcycle journey gave me confidence to go. Suba Sand Dunes is just one of the stops. I went beyond that, I went far. It felt good.

I know I am not yet fully equipped, but this first solo motorcycle journey of 170 kilometers is a signal that I can make it and I will pursue the "dream" in due time.
