Welcome Fellow Travelholic!
How are you doing (extending my virtual handshake)? I’m very glad you found my passion project. Travel Habeat is a combination of three words: TRAVEL, EAT, and HABIT. It is about my personal quest for gastronomic adventures mainly from the Philippines, Asia, and hopefully in the near future, the rest 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. Yes, we can make traveling a habit in between our day job!
Travel Habeat Mission
And there goes my mission. To help you make the most of your precious and limited 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!
