How did you meet in real life?

I met Merlina at Philippines meetup in April 2016. Before that we use to chat on FB messenger and in our whatsapp group. This year (2017) we met again during Cambodia meetup and explored Temples of Angkorwat and some offbeat temples like Beng Mealea and Banteay Srei in Siem Reap.

Why are you vouching for them?

Merlina is a nice lady with a passion of travel. I could connect with her quite fast because she is a down to earth personality and very polite. She has really travelled a lot. She is always on a lookout for new destinations and plans her vacations well ahead. She adjusts to different situations and I have not heard her complaining about anything while travelling.

I really enjoyed chatting and travelling with her and looking forward for more meetups.

I first met Merlina when we picked her up at the NAIA International Airport Terminal 3 on April 2, 2016. The airport suffered an unexpected power outage but with Merlina's resourcefulness, she was able to get word to Brian and me where to pick her up. Over the next few days Merlina and I spent time with our fellow TravBuddies traveling around Manila, Tagaytay, Cebu and Bohol for the April 2016 TravBuddy meetup that I organized.

Why are you vouching for them?

Merlina is my long lost jiĕjie 姐姐 (older sister). We have so much in common, from being raised Catholic, love parties, dancing and singing, not to mention wanting to travel the world on a reasonably cheap budget! She is absolutely easy to get along with, always willing to try out something new, and makes friends with strangers easily. There is never a dull moment traveling with her!

Aside from Manila, Cebu and Bohol in the Philippines, I have traveled with Merlina to Vietnam and Cambodia, and later on, a few more countries that we haven't visited yet. She took care of me when I was injured traveling during the March 2016 TravBuddy meet in Cambodia, something you'd expect siblings to do (watch out for each other). To that I am eternally grateful to Merlina, and look forward to traveling with her again soon.

Wow, so a last minute message from Nolan, while in Cambodia, told me some Travbuddys were doing a quick meetup in Bangkok. Hey, I am in Bangkok so that's great. I hopped on the MRT and headed to the meeting point. We met at a resturant and hung out for a while in Bangkok

Merlina visited Amsterdam during her Europe trip with her friend Nanda, is nice to have the opportunity to meet both of them. She is nice and friendly, we have lots of fun in our daytrip to a 17th century old village Zaanse Schans. We enjoy very much with the small amount of time together.
