I am a half Australian / half Italian living in Rome. My understanding of the Philippines and its culture started early on as one of my oldest friends was born there having moved to Australia at a young age, helping to expose him to its rich culture.
Finally, getting over there, I immediately felt a connection to the place and now I consider myself lucky to be able to help people discover their own connection to the beautiful Philippine islands and their amazingly friendly people which helped me to gain an understanding of this incredible country even in a small way. Since then, I have tried to travel the Philippines at least once a year to find more gemstones along the way that I could include in unique tours for our guests.
