The Filipino Traveler.

Many thanks for taking your time in finding out more about me, The Filipino Traveler. My name is Arthur, born and raised in Manila, Philippines and at present, I live in Stockholm, Sweden.

So how did I come up with the idea of starting this website, The Filipino Traveler?

About Me

My extensive travelling started when I moved to Sweden from Italy in 2007 and started living with my partner Michael, owner of Singelresor Norden. I remember my first trip with the Singelresor group was in South Africa celebrating Christmas of 2007 and New Year of 2008 and it is something I will never forget. Since then, I have been travelling a lot and visiting places that were on my bucket list; like the Great Wall of China, Taj Mahal, Angkor Wat and Machu Picchu either with Singelresor or just me and Michael. Strangely though, the idea of starting this website hasn’t crossed my mind yet although I have all of my wonderful pictures shared on Facebook.

Five years later, in 2012, I came accross Flyertalk, the largest travel community online. By reading all the tips from other members, I was able to learn how I could fly in business and first class inexpensively, simply by redeeming miles. In September of the same year, having booked my first trip in premium class for travel in February 2013, I then decided it was time to start this website. So there it was, a combination of my being a frequent traveller (mostly thru the Singelresor’s groups) and being able to fly in business and first class (thanks to the Flyertalkers) has resulted to my own website: The Filipino Traveler!

Travelling is like reading your history and geography books …. only a thousand times better.
