I am Jonathan Morales, a BPO agent, with the hectic physical and mental demand of my job, I escape the routine and take my Aux1 (Breaktime). This is my blog, and I am Aux1Traveler. Considering that once in a while we need to step back and see a bigger picture of our life. In doing so we can validate that we are still alive and we are freemen nothing close to a corporate slave we somehow think we are. Let’s start traveling in the Philippines, then beyond. This is a journey of chasing the 81 provinces of the Philippines.


We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.”

Launched in 2017, this blog is meant for highly workaholic workforce! In this world where our routine is a work-sleep-eat-repeat norm, It is a need to have a breather sometime; to get out of the “cubicle” and to enjoy life as a human being! with a goal of chasing the 81 Provinces of the Philippines

I am a typical labor man working 8-hour shifts, 5 days a week, someone just like you! With a desire to explore further than what I can see from my office and workstation. In the highly demanding field of BPO and corporate jobs to everything in between. This blog is for you to inspire you to go out sometime, There is life out there beyond the glass!

May this blog be a source of information to discover the hidden gems of the Philippines and to promote local tourism. I believe that tourism is a double-edged sword; one may destroy while the other may protect nature. My prayer is that this blog to inspire responsible tourism.

If you are working so hard and can’t find time to simply get out of town to relax, this is your home right here! Still not an expert, but I am learning on my way. Join me on my path to discovery, to travel and to experience the culture and share useful details of my travel so that you can travel too!
