For most of us, P50,000 isn't cheap. With that amount of money, you can visit a dozen provinces in the Philippines or a handful of countries in Southeast Asia. But if you dream of someday going to London, I hope this guide helps you make it happen. You don't have to be a millionaire – you just need to work, and save, and continue dreaming. Don't let anyone tell you it's impossible. – Rappler.com
