Know more about Carl here!

——————————————————————-

1. What do you do for a living?

Computer Programmer

2. What inspires you?

To make the most out of our short life, to be the best person I can be and to be a prositive and productive member of the society.

3. What is one of your guilty pleasures?

Long drives alone where I can be at peace while heading to new adventures.

4. What was your best experience joining the road trip? 

Among all of the things we did and all of the places we visited, it was the people who i’m with that made everything memorable. I joined the trip with the fear that i’m solo traveling and might not enjoy it. I ended staying up till 2am with a bunch of crazy people talking about love, boybands and k-pop. A memorable trip indeed.

5. What is the title of the movie of your life? 

A Romantic Dinner for One.

6. If you could go back in time what would you tell your 16-year-old self? 

Invest in bitcoin, don’t worry about love and get out of your damn comfort zone!

7. If you can be teleported anywhere around the world, where would it be and why?

In front of my soulmate (if one does exist). Preferrably with a bouquet of flowers while wearing decent clothes with a list of pick-up lines and funny jokes. If not, then how about in front of a magic lamp with a genie inside to grant me three wishes.

8. You, unfortunately, have been condemned to die, but fortunately, you get to have any meal in the world before you go. What is your menu?

Take me to Macao Imperial Tea. The lines there are so long that I’ll spent a few lifetimes waiting to get my meal.

9. Which celebrity would you go on a “one-night-only-date” with? 

Hook me up with Gabriel Iglesias. Better yet, have Gabriel wait in line with me at Macao Imperial. I would gladly laugh my night away than whatever “one-night-only-date” alternatives are available.

10. How would you explore a destination on your own? 

With a cellphone with data/wifi, google and my camera.

11. If you could trade places with anyone right now, for a week, who would it be and why?

Hmm.. Gabriel’s wife? hehe. On a serious note, let me trade places with a dive master from Fiji or the Great Barrier Week. Diving those great places while getting paid to do it is a dream of mine. On a less serious note… how about George R.R. Martin? Where are the last GoT books, George?!?

12. What is the best present you ever received? 

My dad gave me a powerbank 7 years ago for christmas. It was a very unimpressive christmas gift but that gift has saved me from power crisis countless of times. I still use it to this day

13. If you could meet a famous or not so famous person, who would that be and why?

Alex Peirce. He’s runs a youtube show called Alex Peirce SCUBA which features tips about SCUBA equipment and SCUBA history. A great show if you’re into SCUBA diving.

14. How old should a person start traveling?

I believe there is no specific number to dictate when you should start traveling. 18, 24, 40? It doesn’t matter. What matters is you start. So, if you’re reading this and havn’t started already then don’t worry. It’s never too late to start.

15. If you could go back in time and to relive any moment in your life exactly as it originally happened, what event would choose to experience again? 

My first SCUBA diving trip. Specifically my “Check out dives” to those divers out there. It was scary, cold, confusing and stressful. I was constantly afraid of drowning, afraid of getting lost due to the low visiblity, afraid of failing the exams and I was having a hard time remembering to breath through my mouth. Yet, that started my new obsession of the deep. So much has changed since that weekend I decided to get wet.

16. What is your best experience in traveling/living in the Philippines? 

It’s got to be our beautiful beaches and underwater scenery.

17. In one sentence, how would you like people to remember you?

To my friends, I would like to be remembered as someone dependable, trustworthy and easy going.

1. What do you do for a living?

Airline Operations Supervisor

3. What is one of your guilty pleasures?

Snickers and Twix. Its probably bad for me since i hail from a bloodline of diabetics from both sides of my family, but nothing really beats a bar of snickers followed by a pair of twix to ease off the edges at the end of a bad day.

4. What was your best experience joining the road trip? 

Getting to share an amazingly beautiful island exclusively with that first SRT batch and chilling out with some of the coolest people ive met. We had an island all to ourselves! ? but really, that was only half of what made that trip so amazing. What made that SRT so great was the journey itself: sharing a bus ride with complete strangers who turned into great friends 4-boat-1-van-2-tricycle rides later. ? ive joined quite a number of road trips after that, a couple wherein i went as a TM, even. Ive got a collection of memories from all these enough to last me until my senile years ? and i plan to rake in more, this time with my better half along with the ride ?.

Ang pelikulang walang pamagat

Whoever is mission captain for the next flight to the ISS. Just so. ?

As soon as one makes enough money to do so ?

The trip to Gudauri with my wife. I could live those days over and over again in a loop ?

Driving outside manila. There is magic in PH’s provincial roads, all those sights and sounds and all that food that you get to try along the way. It just makes me want to go on and on and drive to the edges of the Philippines ?

17. In one sentence, how would you like people to remember you?

Chew slowly. Savor the moment ?

And its Monday again! In today’s Road Tripper Monday, we will be knowing more about Jamielyn Yaneza! She joined RRT 53 and Luna Sea 4. Jamielyn is an Event Planner, Event Host, and Teacher or Trainer. Traveling is her guilty pleasure. 

To know more about Jamielyn, read more about her here —

——————————————————————-

1. What do you do for a living?

Event planner, event host, teacher/trainer

2. What inspires you?

Small victories..and people who know what it means to celebrate them.

3. What is one of your guilty pleasures?

Traveling!

4. What was your best experience joining the road trip? 

Experiencing new things – river tubing, daring to jump off a cliff to the ocean without a vest, laughing to our heart’s content in a teepee hut and talking about mundane things with new found friends. Everything was awesome.

5. What is the title of the movie of your life? 

Fire…ice..and everything in between.

6. If you could go back in time what would you tell your 16-year-old self? 

Notice the red flags and always keep your eyes open.

7. If you can be teleported anywhere around the world, where would it be and why?

Paris. So cliché, but who cares? I wanna take a pic beside the Eiffel tower para hindi puro miniature earrings, key chain, and replica lang ang encounter ko with it. ?

8. You, unfortunately, have been condemned to die, but fortunately, you get to have any meal in the world before you go. What is your menu?

Steamed kangkong, okra, beans with tomatoes, red egg, green mango, and bagoong. Sinigang with rice. Buko pandan. #filipinomuch

9. Which celebrity would you go on a “one-night-only-date” with? 

Lee Jong-suk. Haha.

10. How would you explore a destination on your own? 

I would take an hour or two to quickly organise the route I would take, so I could visit all the great places without wasting time or money. Although impromptu, I’d come up with a list of places to go and food to eat…and save the routes to my home screen. (Sorry, planner eh haha)

11. If you could trade places with anyone right now, for a week, who would it be and why?

I don’t have a name in mind yet, but most probably one of the people who is known to be the best in the industry I work in so I could learn from the expert by actual experience.

12. What is the best present you ever received? 

Time and honesty.

13. If you could meet a famous or not so famous person, who would that be and why?

Paulo Coelho…just curious on what’s going on in his brilliant mind. ?

14. How old should a person start traveling?

If and when you have the means, go for it. There’s no use travelling if the money you’re spending isn’t yours. Travelling is a treat for yourself, a luxury, and an experience to enjoy… the younger you start, the better. So.. save up youngsters! ?

15. If you could go back in time and to relive any moment in your life exactly as it originally happened, what event would choose to experience again? 

That spur of the moment/surprise trip to the beach on my birthday a couple of years ago…watching the sunset, eating a very simple dinner, and listening to the band sing me a birthday song as requested by someone dear to me.

16. What is your best experience in traveling/living in the Philippines? 

Seeing the wonders of nature first hand – first snorkeling experience from way back 2008, seeing the sardine run in cebu last year… everytime I become a witness that stuff on discovery channel aren’t fiction. haha.

17. In one sentence, how would you like people to remember you?

She chose happiness and did everything with passion…or not at all.
