From the mystic mountains of Kalinga, to the untamed shores of Camotes Island, and the soothing airspace of Nueva Vizcaya — come take a ride with us and discover why traveling is the best thing you can do for you.

On this road trip we’ll meet Violet Lucasi of the International Flying Education Center, whose life did a 180 after discovering paragliding; and triathlon coach Ige Lopez, who scaled 34 of the Philippines’ highest peaks and gives us the low-down on preparing for anything in the great wide open.
