Occupation/Location: Tour operator, Manila.
How did you find about the Philippines?
While travelling in SE Asia but I also read some books about the country.
What Philippine locations have you visited?
Mostly Luzon and Mindanao.
What are your opinions on the following things about the Philippines?
There are so many amazing spots in the country. I could spend my entire life visiting all of them. I especially love the mountains and volcanoes here.
Best food in the world. There is nothing better than a sisig, a kare-kare or an Adobo. Filipino cuisine has taken the best for its history. I am also amazed how good are Filipino cooks when it comes to prepare some foreign dishes. To give an example, the best Paella I have eaten so far was here in Manila.
A very interesting culture. You probably need a lifetime to understand it well as it is a very rich culture.
Filipinos are great, open minded, they know how to enjoy life and at the same time they are hard working and very efficient.
What do you dislike about the Philippines?
Maybe the pollution in Metro Manila. I hope the country goes green.
What do you like about the Philippines?
People, food, mountains, beaches.
Your favorite place/s in the Philippines.
L-R: 1) The rice terraces of Batad.. a must see!; 2) Taal Volcano, a place where you can feel how alive is mother earth; 3) Anawangin beach with its pristine waters and beautiful pine trees.
