Andrea Torres has expressed her dream of going on a solo trip à la Julia Roberts in the film Eat Pray Love.
The Kapuso star wants to explore Europe or even India, which is one of the destinations featured in her “favorite movie” about a woman (Roberts) who rediscovers herself after a breakup by traveling alone.
“Actually ngayon, nag-dream talaga ako mag-travel alone,” the 30-year-old said in an interview with Kumu streamer Denise Mallabo on Friday, February 26.
“Ang gusto kong mapuntahan, Europe. Gusto ko lang mag-ikot-ikot. Mahilig ako mag-lakad-lakad, mag-explore,” she added.
Andrea said she plans to tour Europe by train. “Magkakadikit di ba? Nate-train mo lahat. At saka gusto ko dun, alam mo yun, uupo ka lang, magbabasa ka ng libro dun, talagang i-enjoy mo lang ang moment.”
She also shared that she can imagine herself walking around Europe’s old streets, chilling out in cafés and meeting people.
“Gusto ko yung ganun, palakad-lakad lang sa streets, kung ano lang yung maisipan kong café na mapuntahan or restaurant. And gusto ko yung nakikipag-usap sa mga strangers kapag nasa abroad ako. Yung make friends ka lang talaga.”
The host told her that she might also find love in her future solo trip just like in the movie. Andrea, whose breakup with Derek Ramsay in November 2020 made showbiz headlines, said, “Oo gusto ko talaga kasi yung Eat Pray Love. Favorite movie ko yun, lagi kong inuulit ulit yun.
The movie is based on a memoir written by journalist Elizabeth Gilbert who went soul-searching in three different countries — Italy, India and Indonesia — after the breakdown of her marriage.
“Alam mo kung pwede lang talaga mag-India, mag-i-India ako kasi parang feeling ko sobrang masaya mag-explore dun eh. Type ko talaga super!” Andrea said.
To show how much she enjoys wandering on her own, the actress recalled getting lost even in the location of the lock-in shoot for her upcoming GMA series Legal Wives because she was looking for a lake.
“Ini-embrace ko lang talaga ang Eat Pray Love, ano?” she mused.
Meanwhile, during the same Kumu show Drinks with Denise, Andrea, who has been tightlipped about her breakup, still answered a fan’s question about her “ideal relationship.”
She said, “(When) you’re just yourself. Willing din kayo mag-adjust for each other. Hindi yung big adjustments, ha, but yung bukal sa kalooban mo. Feeling ko, that makes a perfect partnership.”
But it seems Andrea is happily single for now. When asked by a fan how she is nowadays, her answer was short but sweet: “Very good. Masaya!”
In a separate interview aired on GMA 7’s newscast 24 Oras also on Friday, she said she has no plans yet of getting into another relationship.
“Hindi po muna Tito Lhar (Santiago). Gusto ko po muna mag-spend ng time with myself. So, ganito po muna talaga — work, family and friends.”
