Rumble / Airplane IncidentsHave you ever been the only person on an entire airplane?! This entry in The Diary of Alex captures what it's like as he travels all alone on his self-proclaimed private jet.

Blogger Alex Simon was backpacking through Asia when he booked a flight with Philippine Airlines to one of the most beautiful islands in the world – Boracay, home of gorgeous beaches and breathtaking scenery. He says it was the luckiest day of his life, because apparently no one else booked that flight, so he got to fly alone. He shot this footage while in the air, which later became viral and brought him fame!

Alex maintains his own travel blog, where he documents all of his travels. He uploads video clips as well, which leave you with a hankering for tropical islands and busy city streets on the other side of the world. Alex quit his job to travel the Americas; he packed only one backpack and he took his camera and his GoPro with him. Since then, his blog has been filled with videos from all of his destinations – California, New York, Mexico, Cuba, Nevada, Colombia and so many others!
