Summary of project:

“Replicating a passport, this book contains interviews with expats in the Philippines: travels who found a place to rest after a long journey. It is no coincidence that the author – a keen observer of human nature – has roving eyes himself and had traveled widely across all continents. Perhaps better than anyone else, he knows that traveling is not only moving from one place to another. It is also an inner journey, in search of oneself. As such, I tend to believe that this book is not about expats in the Philippines, or at least not exclusively. It is a book about people who are willing to go very far in search of happiness and peace, something which we all seek, but so few of us ever find.”
