Raffy Velarde is the kind of person who’s always down to experience new things, which is why it isn’t surprising to find out that he’s enthusiastic about traveling. For him, there’s always something to learn about life in every place he visits. He says, “The feeling of being able interact and immerse yourself in various cultures, it’s definitely a learning experience and you eventually realize that there’s so much more to life than what we know.”

For every new destination he visits, expect that this 21-year-old will always have a camera in hand. “I’m a very sentimental person and I always make sure to keep photos and videos as I travel,” He shares. “I feel like the two go hand-in-hand for you to have the whole experience since there’s also a certain excitement I get when I’m able to share these experiences with others.”

This year, Raffy is setting a new goal: to visit one new place every month—locally or abroad—may it be museums to marvel at art, beaches to chill in, or mountains to climb. After all, there’s a story waiting to be told in every nook of the planet, and Raffy will be there to unearth it.
