The Great Travelers Garage Sale

As if inspiring people with their adventures, photos and dance craze wasn’t enough, Filipina backpackers Lois and Chichi of We Are Sole Sisters have organized a GREAT TRAVELERS GARAGE SALE for those soon to follow in their footsteps. To them, it's not enough to inspire and encourage others to travel. They want to enable more Filipinos to go out there and see the world. It will be the best education you can ever give yourself. This is their small way of helping travelers kickstart their adventures.

Quite a noble cause, I say. Lucky for me and my travel partner Angelica, we were invited to join in. Impeccable timing, really. We are leaving for our big Asian backpacking adventure in a couple of weeks. Two weeks! So please, spare us some of your loose change. Every peso you spend will help us fulfill our dreams and fuel our passions. It might just ignite yours, too.

The Great Travelers Garage Sale will take place this coming Saturday, October 1st, at 88 Payna Street, Veterans Village Project 7, Quezon City from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

By the way, Angelica and I aren’t the only ones who are going to be selling our stuff. Three other travelers who are going to be there are Jonna of The Bratpacker, Karen of Tips ‘n Travels and Ralf of My Footprints My Life. And I think there's going to be a lot more!

Up for grabs are all types of clothing (from jackets to shirts to pants), books (lots of them!), messenger bags, luggage, backpacks, footwear (for men and women), office clothes, printer ink, photography equipment, CDs, DVDs and Thailand goodies (this courtesy of Ralf).
