Who We Are

We tell stories that aim to inspire others to travel with passion & purpose.

OUR STORY

It started with a Facebook chat between two friends who decided to make a planner together. We had no idea what we were doing but we just wanted a space where we can be creative on our own terms. After four years, we still haven't figured out what it takes to run a successful and sustainable business, but we keep at it to tell meaningful stories of our adventures.

One of the main things we discovered in our work is that people don’t just want pretty Instagram posts; they want to hear stories. Through the lens of travel, it was possible to help people explore things they are excited about, to motivate them to do work they can be proud of. 

You don’t have to go far away to learn and meet yourself. You just have to be intentional with how you move, how you choose what and who to spend time with. Travel for us is no longer the desired end, but it serves as a small reminder that our life is in a constant motion, some things will happen to us regardless of what we do, but for the things we have control over, we have to grab it by the reins and evolve with it. We hope that in our little ways we can help you realize that too.

OUR ADVOCACY

Last year, for every planner sold, a tree was planted in the ancestral domain of the Yangil tribe in Zambales. Through the combined efforts of all the partner organizations and individuals involved, the tribe was able to plant 10,000 seedlings. But there is more work to be done. 

With the help of our friends in Mad Travel and The Circle Hostel, the proceeds of the next planner will further strengthen our partnership with the Yangil tribe. We will also be working with another tribe dear to us, the LAKAS Community in Botolan, Zambales. 

The best way to help other people is to listen to their hopes and dreams and work together to find ways to make them happen. Thank you for helping us realize ours. You are a part of this amazing tribe. Let’s pay it forward.
