I’ve traveled around the Philippines from the northernmost inhabited island (Itbayat, Batanes) to the southernmost province (Tawi-Tawi) and through several countries from Jordan to India.
Since I started freelancing in 2008, my work has been published in various local and international publications including broadsheets, print, lifestyle, inflight magazines & online media.
Travel Up, which I started in March 2011, is my online journal for adventure in real and virtual worlds. I write mostly about offbeat and inspiring local travel destinations, food trips, motorcycling, video games & beer.
WHY TRAVEL UP?
The name of my blog is inspired by the video game concept of leveling up, gaining experience points, exploring new areas, meeting new people, and attaining higher levels by completing tasks and challenges. Since I’ve started this blog, I’ve embarked on several travel-related sidequests including collecting (photos of) hotel room keys and beer I’ve tried. When I’m not on the road, I can usually be found at home playing video games. Am a big fan of the Final Fantasy series, RPGs & puzzle platformers.
