Everyone in Travelife Magazine is really living a Travelife


The other day, at the Travelife Magazine office, living a Travelife, one of our readers decided to pay us a visit.

I just happened to be at work, so we had a short chat.

She said: "I love Travelife Magazine and I read it from cover to cover. And I love the Travelife blog. It's the first thing I read every morning. Then I also check it before going to sleep in case it's been updated with another interesting story."

Music to my ears, of course.



That certainly made our day. We get comments like this quite a lot, by the way. Apparently, lots of our dear readers and friends read the Travelife blog first thing in the morning and last thing at night.

Then she asked: "Do you really go on all those trips? It seems you're never home."

Yes, we really do go on all those amazing trips, so it's truly a never-ending Travelife.

EVERYONE IN TRAVELIFE MAGAZINE
GOES ON A TRAVELIFE

And almost everyone at Travelife Magazine gets to go on a never-ending Travelife as well.


This week alone, we had the world map in front of us and our schedule books out, as we tried to map who was going to which country and when.



I kid you not, that it was literally a headache to plan a hundred trips at the same time, as there are just too many places and too little time.

Even in a never-ending Travelife.


HOME ALONE
WHILE EVERYONE ON THE TEAM
GOES ON A TRAVELIFE

This week, I'm actually staying home for once, although you'll be reading about my never-ending Travelife again soon.

But it seems that everyone else is in the Travelife Magazine office is going on a Travelife or preparing for one.

GOA FOR SOME FUN IN THE SUN


Gel Bayona, Travelife Magazine general manager, for example, is headed for Goa, India next weekend.

Goa's an amazing place and I wish I had the time to join her, but she and one of our contributing photographers will be exploring that exotic part of India very soon.

TOKYO FOR THE CHERRY BLOSSOMS



Meg Caligner, Travelife Magazine's super efficient marketing manager is flying out to Tokyo to catch the cherry blossom season in Japan.

Everyone who joins us on a Travelife, or who repeatedly joins us on a Travelife, deals with Meg, by the way, and they all have nothing but praises for her hard work. So we thought she could use a break in Tokyo.

KOREA FOR SOME KIMCHI



Bryan Arevalo, Travelife's creative director, is doing a spring journey around Korea, to check up on the new trends coming up in this dynamic country.

MALAYSIA FOR A FESTIVAL



Carlo Velasco, Travelife's associate editor and head of Travelife TV, is flying to Malaysia with our TV crew to catch a very colorful festival in the hinterlands.

DUBAI FOR A REASON



Travelife Managing Editor Ceia Ylagan is heading the editorial team going to Dubai pretty soon, as well, to check out this ever-changing wondrous destination.

She and the Travelife editorial team also had Greece on her schedule, but we had to push this back as the next few months are simply too busy.






IT'S MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES

Travelife Editorial Assistant Jean Mangonon is spending a weekend in the southern Philippines.

And too many other trips after these, to write about in one blog entry.

MY TRULY NEVER-ENDING TRAVELIFE



As for me, my never-ending Travelife is just crazy, as always.

I had to put New York on the back burner for a few months as I simply can't find the days this spring to go, although my ticket's done and waiting.

Greece had to be postponed as well for the same reason.



But if everything works out, as it usually does in a never-ending Travelife, I'm going to be in the Czech Republic and France this April, South Africa in May, and to Morocco and New Zealand in June.

Then it's the countryside of Spain and France again in July for summer holidays.



Somewhere into this hectic schedule, two trips to Tokyo, a visit to Hua Hin and a trip to Vietnam need to be fitted in as well.

Some people get palpitations hearing my travel plans -- and rightly so. It's truly a never-ending, and never-endingly eventful Travelife.
