- Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat.Pray.Love)
My passion for travel started when I joined my friend's trip to Baguio in 2001. Weekend out-of-town trips like Puerto Galera, Batangas and more followed years after. When I first traveled abroad in 2006 for a business trip in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, it was then that I knew I can do it on my own.

After exploring the place myself, I find more fun in preparing the itinerary all over again and then share with friends who love to travel too. The thrill and adventure are very different when I am trying to figure out where I am heading - when I get lost and ask a local for directions. We speak different languages but a smile and simple gestures can still make people understand each other.
