#RoadTripperMonday – a weekly feature of our very own Road Tripper.
Welcome to the fourth Monday of October! Today, we will feature Rhose Lapera. Rhose is one of the most traveled person we know. She has probably seen the entire Europe! I guess it is one of the perks of being talented in one of the biggest companies in the world. She joined us in one of our trips in Mindanao. A very simple and kind person who is obsessed with Italian ice cream.
