Welcome Fellow Travelholic!

How are you doing (extending my virtual handshake)? I’m very glad you found my passion project. Travel Habeat is a collection of gastronomic travel adventures from different parts of the world.

If you are a corporate junkie like me, probably you are spending at least 40 hours of your week in your cubicle haven. But guess what? We have our weekends, vacation leaves and holidays to pack our bags and hit the road.

And there goes my mission. To help you make the most of your precious leisure time, I wrote my travel stories so you can do the following:

  • Plan better your next trip.
  • Grab a copy of my itinerary.
  • Get tips I got from the locals themselves.
  • Learn from my travel mishaps.

Most importantly, my mission is to inspire you to break that everyday routine and find some worthy leisure pursuits while thriving excellence in our respective careers. Accomplishments and milestones will always be there but how do you get there? Let us make that a lot more exciting. Ready?

Pursuit of a Memorable Life

“The next thing you know you’re 40. Where did the time go? Life is not the number of days you live but the number of days you remember. How many days in the past month do you remember? The problem is overtime we developed a more ingrained routine with fewer novel experiences. Break the routine. These are the experiences that stretch us. These are the experiences we will remember. And with each new memorable experience, there is a value gained. It added richness to life. We began to refer to it as life profit. The key to living a memorable life is the pursuit of a memorable life.”

Excerpt from The Pursuit of a Memorable Life, Dustin Garis, TEDx Talks

Ask yourself, how much life profit have you gained? What could you do to make today memorable? It need not to be as extravagant as going to Maldives. Go to that archery place and try hitting your target. Visit that newly opened museum. Grab that cup of latte in a nearby coffee shop. Ride a bus to that neighboring town.

Whatever you decide for yourself to make your life memorable, I am hoping you’ll find something in my life profit bank as compiled here in my passion project, Travel Habeat.

Wherever you are and whatever you do, be the best you can be. Do not settle for anything but excellence. And while doing it, make an investment on your life profit bank. Travel as often and as far as you can!

Until then, may you throw off the bowlines and sail away!

Carpe Diem,

    I think I have made a lot of memories both as an individual and as a family. The problem now is how to make more money! hahahah

  2. I guess I am beginning to rewrite my story. I used to be a strict mom who divides her time between work and family. Now that I am spending more of my time with my boys, I am learning to be more forgiving and patient, more loving and open–more of a mom and not a stranger to them. What am I driving at? I would love to invest on love and time now as I was not able to give those two to my boys before. It is not too late, is it?

  3. I started to blog to also share my experiences and travels. I think as a blogger, all we actually wanted is to share every experiences we have with our readers. I hope you get to visit more places and continue to share your experiences in this blog! 🙂

    My ultimate dream is to travel, but budget does not permit as of the moment. So for now, I’m building on myself and my expriences, I spend time with my son, and I try to grab whatever opportunity that will come my way. I used to not be a risk-taker, but that didn’t get me anywhere. Changing this attitude brought in a lot of breaks for me this year, and the 1st quarter has just finished. I’m loving this braver version of me. And I’m excited for what I can still accomplish this year.

  5. I really love to travel. What’s stopping me is my financial status. LOL But there are really times when my friends are able to get together and go outside of our city.

    What a great mission Arriane! Surely, present and next generation travellers will benefit a lot from your purpose and this blog. Enjoy!

    A wonderful mission. I’m sure many people will appreciate your optimistic and uplifting posts. I’m not much of a traveller, it’s not that I don’t want to, we just have too many commitments but believe me once we hit retirement age we will be hopping on motorbikes and touring!

  8. I’m glad to meet you sis and I hope we have a chance to travel together. Continue writing and sharing your experiences. Keep traveling, cheers!

    • I’m very glad to meet you too, dear! Yes, looking forward for our future travels together 🙂 You’re one of the most passionate travel bloggers I’ve known and you inspire me a lot. Here’s to exploring the world and endless blogging! 🙂

    “Experience is the best teaching”-This saying makes me want to travel and do a lot of activities. I really love to travel but something is stopping me and its my financial status haha. Hoping to explore the Philippines soon hihi

  10. Saswati says:

    Absolutely, do not settle for anything but excellence!! Great read!! Keep traveling and discovering the world!! 🙂

  11. Hi sis. I really adore you for pursuing your passion. It feels like I don’t have an excuse for not doing mine. I hope we can go on a trip together w/ Louise and other bloggers.

  12. I am turning 39 in 5 months and I realized when I was younger travelling was a luxury. There were no budget airfares or accommodations. Well, no flight delays too! I haven’t travel as much as I want to but reading travel blogs is the next best thing for me.
