founder of flip­trip.ph and one of cosmo’s 2015 fun fear­less fe­male awardees, wrote “hang loose in Zam­bales,” p.134. she’s been there more than 10 times, “each time feel­ing re­newed.” she says, “it’s a prov­ince of warm peo­ple who sin­cerely want their vis­i­tors to have a good time. it ends up feel­ing like your sec­ond home.” april has built her life around en­cour­ag­ing other peo­ple to travel in the philip­pines be­cause “you’ll find ad­ven­tures ev­ery­where, if you’d only look. ex­plor­ing our own back­yard helps us ap­pre­ci­ate the beauty of our coun­try and look be­yond the daily strug­gles and is­sues we face.” “ev­ery pinay should travel—it re­ally helps to gain a new per­spec­tive on ev­ery­thing. see­ing new places and get­ting to know dif­fer­ent ways of life first-hand ex­pands your own per­sonal world. each ad­ven­ture can re­ju­ve­nate you and push you to be bet­ter, and you won’t even know it un­til you look back.” Cos­mopoli­tan april 2016
