At GRID, we have always believed that the pretty destinations are secondary to the various reasons we travel. In Issue 10, we honor the people who have enabled us to experience the Philippines in different and better ways with a series of short films by Lyka Gonzalez.

This first video introduces our feature on People Who Are Changing the Way We Travel. Featuring GRID Magazine’s Kristine Fonacier (Editor-in-Chief), Nachi Ugarte (Creative Director), Paco Guerrero (Executive Editor); Flotsam and Jetsam Hostel‘s Mia Sebastian; El Union Coffee‘s Kiddo Cosio; performance artist CARLOS CELDRAN; record breaking freediver Carlo Navarro; and Mermaid Odessa.

Putting the "union" in La Union


Mia Sebastian of Flotsam and Jetsam Hostel and Kiddo Cosio of El Union, in La Union share their experience growing a community in a place they love. As part of GRID Magazine’s 11 People Who Are Changing the Way We Travel, the pair reveals the moment that convinced them to stay beachside.

“Whether by accident or by design—or perhaps by some unspoken agreement—the development in La Union has been thoughtful and slow, remaining sensitive to the locals and to the spirit of the place.”

The Life Aquatic

As part of GRID Magazine’s series on the 11 People Who Are Changing the Way We Travel, we talk to Freedive instructor Carlo Navarro and self-professed mermaid Odessa Bugarin about the resurgence of freediving and their time spent undersea at Aiyanar Resort in Anilao.

Making Sense of the City

Performance artist (and famed tour guide) Carlos Celdran has led many to rediscover the wonders of Manila. In GRID Magazine’s list of 11 People Who Are Changing the Way We Travel, he talks to us about confronting and figuring out the beast that is the capitol of the Philippines.

APEC week has ruffled more than a few feathers for the strain it put on an already overburdened metro, but performance artist (and famed tour guide) CARLOS CELDRAN reminds us that we play an integral part in confronting – and making peace with – the beast that is Metro Manila.
