    Man allegedly walks 60km from Zambales to Pampanga just to see girlfriend

    MANILA, Philippines – A man claiming to have walked all the way from Olongapo, Zambales to Angeles, Pampanga just to see his girlfriend documented his long journey and shared it on Facebook.

    According to Eric John Rodriguez, he decided to take the 60-kilometer journey on foot since he only had P50 in his pocket. While he was still at New Cabalan in Olongapo, Zambales, he was having second thoughts on taking the difficult trip but decided on pursuing it since he had been missing his girlfriend badly the past few days.

    “Dahil miss ko yung girlfriend ko naisipan kong puntahan kaso fifty pesos lang pera ko eh anlayo non 60 kilometers. Kaya naisipan kong maglakad kasi medyo wala ako sa sarili these days kasi di ko siya nakakasama. Unang-una palang bandang New Cab napaisip na ako kung susuko na ba ako eh habang malapit pa pero dahil sa kagustuhan ko siyang makita nagpursigi ako maglakad at sa awa ng Diyos nakarating ako ng safe sa Angeles, Pampanga. Sobrang mahal na mahal ko girlfriend ko kaya ko nagawa yon,” Rodriguez wrote on his Facebook post.

    During his journey, Rodriguez took photos and videos of the landmarks that he passed on his way to his girlfriend. He even posted a photo of a local brand of biscuit which served as his snacks during the journey.

    “Mahirap. Pagod na pagod na ako. Gusto ko na sumuko maglakad pero kaya. Makita lang kita,” he said at one point during his walk.

    Eventually, Rodriguez reached his destination and was able to meet his girlfriend after a long and tiring walk. Based on the photos he shared, it seems that his difficult journey was rewarded with a date at a fast food restaurant.
