BPI Cards Reward Cardholders at the 5th Travel Madness Expo

"Traveling is the only thing you buy that makes you richer" I once read this quote somewhere online and it made me wonder. You spend a great amount of money just to travel. Airfare and transportation alone is already equivalent to a month's worth of grocery. You also have to shell out thousands for accommodation and other expenses. So how does traveling make you richer? I found the answer when I started to travel. I don't travel a lot, I still can count with my fingers the times I have traveled and mostly my travels are from Manila to our province. Since I got married I already lived here in Manila with my own family, away from my parents. So aside from keeping in touch with my parents thru social media, I once a year see to it that I travel to our province with my own family. We visit my parents and relatives and at the same time a chance for us to unwind and tour my kids to my hometown and surrounding places. Yes we spend money but in return we have created a special bond as family and lots of memories that we can treasure for a lifetime and I guess that what makes us richer!
