I’m a wanderlust. I love to see new places and experience the culture of other countries around me. Traveling is one of my biggest favorite things to do, next to shopping. I used to be a travel agent. It was during that time when I realized that traveling was, is, and will be a part of my life. I am also blessed to be in the airline industry where my insatiable need to travel is fed. Otherwise, my dream to see the world will just be that – a dream.

My husband and daughter share the same passion I have with traveling. We have our annual family trip where we pick the country to visit and explore according to our budget. We don’t travel in style. We’re lucky if we get upgraded to business class but we don’t mind wherever cabin we are in. Although sitting in business class will be a great plus especially if we are traveling long-haul.

We have been to many countries in a span of 18 years. I tell my husband that we will keep doing this as long as we can, and as long as we are financially able. I don’t want to see the world when I am old and grey. I want to enjoy all these while I can.

Last year, my husband and I decided to create our own travel channel on YouTube as we love taking short clips of the places we have visited and the hotels we have stayed at.  Please check out our The Travelbugs channel to watch our many travel adventures. Thanks!
