Gian is the founder of Experience Philippines. One of his impeccable skills is being able to strike a conversation with any traveller along the way because of his warm personality and endless curiosity. He can easily be bribed with milk tea 25% sweetness level, less ice.. you can add pearl toppings na rin.
Jeff is one of the biggest pillars behind Experience Philippines. Although he is a very busy man with numerous projects and adventures, Jeff squeezes time to wall climb and meet his friends. One of his assets during road trips is being ridiculously good at mental math. His favorite quote is 'BASTA DRIVER, SWEET LOVER. Follow him at www.instagram.com/punong_bisyonaryo/"
"Sheena is a combination of an Energizer Bunny and a chill cat during road trips. Although she prefers to stay behind the spotlight, she can quickly stand out with her quirky personality and eagerness to explore hipster locations. After hearing Jennylyn Mercado say that 'funny can also be sexy', Sheena is continuously undergoing humor training. Follow her on www.instagram.com/shnappy"
Charismatic. Enthusiastic. Jet-setter. Those are the three words that would perfectly fit on this guy. With his insane humor and infectious enthusiasm for adventure, for sure there will never be any boring moments with him! Check out his instagram @hergemiltom and see his #TOMyadventures that will attest why he deserves the title "kilabot ng mga bebot"! LIKOD PALANG, ULAM NA!
If you were to include her in the Oxford dictionary, Debby would be defined as a strong independent woman... except when it's time to jump off a cliff over a waterfall or off a boat into the deep blue sea. Always with her during road trips is her handy dandy salbabida."
"Gibe, your one stop shop-a friend, a brother or a kuya, and like a father all in one! There is no one who can outmatch Gibe when it comes to brotherly care and concern. He is always ready to listen, laugh, cry and and encourage you during those days you feel that you don't want to adult. 'Pandesal ba 'kamo? Halika sa tabi ko.' #AbsNiGibe #KuyaTonipet."
"Hipster, songwriter, rock music and film-enthusiast, Rob likes to balance life and ideas. He exists in the border that separates the old and the new, restraint and carelessness, individuality and sense of belongingness - wobbly walking the thin line between dreams and reality."
"Who says classy can't be cowboy? Karen is more than what meets the eye. She walks with confidence and grace in her preferred 3-inch heels but doesn't mind getting down and dirty just to get a perfect IG-worthy shot. This master organizer is a combination of a strong and heartwarming personality. You'll never feel left out when she's around. She's a firm believer of Go Lang ng Go! Get to know her more @wackeekaren."
"Matteo, the traveling Chowski who looks like little brown fox and often confused for a Shiba Inu. He is a hyper active puppy who gets excited when going outdoors. He jumps and runs around like a gazelle when in hyper mode. He loves veggies especially carrots and squash. He is affectionate and warm to all humans especially girls. He dreams of food everyday. You can follow his adventures at www.instagram.com/matteotravels".
Don't get intimidated by how he quickly gets at ease craking jokes with large groups of people. Modest and unassuming, AJ is most comfortable greeting dogs and befriending chickens. He's in love with code and writes some in exchange for rectangular pieces of paper and discs made out of various metals. He usually sleeps through the night, but whenever he gets the chance, he wakes up at the wee hours of the morning to capture the stars. Follow him at @_iorek
Danes's favorite and most famous hobby is horticulture (that's gardening for everyone else). However, he can be relied on stuff that really matters like insights on the best travel itineraries and scientific trivia (like how white beaches are formed or what estuaries are and where to find them) that could prove useful in planning your vacation. He goes by this matra when it comes to walwalan sessions: "Tatagay hangga't may atay. Susuka pero hindi susuko." Check out his page at Urban Gardener Manila
After a few months traveling and volunteering around South East Asia, Gabi joined Experience Philippines as our foreign travel manager from Spain. As for his passion, it's travel, discover, and meet great souls and good-hearted people. He enjoys mostly nature and outdoor activities, although he would never reject a good party with a couple of social drinks around :)
Grace freedived with a sea snake and lived to tell about it. A Bohemian hippie old soul who loves organic edible stuff and dances like no one's watching. She will take you out climbing trees, smelling grass, and singing in the pale moonlight. Knows Victoria's secret...sssshhhhh. Her weekend routine? get up, be a rock star TM, go back to bed, repeat. CAUTION : Road Trip with this TM can be addictive!
Apart from being the most beautiful of them all, Isa's charm and dimple, which she sells for PHP10k, make her the crowd's favorite. No heights, wild waves, and bae gays could knock off her energy that blazes from 5 AM wantusawa! Follow her adventures and karupukan at @marieisaaabel
To Jayvee, the world is made up of stories (sorry, atoms). There's nothing he loves more than listening to his fellow travelers' tales -- except maybe enriching his own story by trekking the Philippines. That or cleaning the bathroom when he's stressed. He also likes showering people with his positivity and shamelessly self-proclaimed asset, his smile. He's been on the happy pill for as long as he can remember, but his drug of choice has got to be adrenaline. Follow his adventures on instagram: @jaeyometry
Ambivert! Joanne enjoys me time and solo travels but equally loves being and travelling with friends and strangers. She enjoys the outdoors even if it means not achieving her ultimate goal na...... pumuti! She loves exotic food like balut, frogs, grubs, beetles and grasshoppers! With her energetic (lalo na pag walang tulog) and positive vibes, there will be no dull moments with her.
Lee Ejercito, a-tapang a-tao. A-kita a-dagat, a-talon. A-kita a-bangin, a-talon. A-kita a-talon, a-talon. A-kita a-ipis, a-takbo. Follow me @sunkissed_lee. Upload ko, pusuan mo
You can hear the non stop infectious giggling from far away. Ready to take off at a moment's notice, her unquencheable thirst for adventure and a good time is always evident. She strikes the unique balance between spontaneity and organization. She expresses herself most interestingly through doodles. Behind her laughing eyes lies an artistic soul who would be happy to engage in both mababaw and meaningful conversations. Born to explore, Maita makes every experience a good story.
Alfie is a happy-go-lucky, adventure-seeking, cool guy. His life word is "balance". Alfie is a yogi. You can find him most of the time meditating to attract positive vibes in his yoga mat. He loves the sunset and preserves the memories of places that he visits through keychains and postcards. He believes that life is a blank canvas, go and create your masterpiece.

To know Jam is to experience the best of both worlds. She’s down to binge-watch Harry Potter and Doctor Who with you, but she’s also the type to walk 500 miles, and walk 500 miles more (to fall down at your door~ uy kumanta :p) just to get to a secret destination. You just never know her fully, but the ride, she assures you, is definitely worth it. Her driving force is simply to have a montage of moments to the music of David Bowie’s Heroes.
