Dubai has offered a lot of opportunities for dreamer Michael Emlano.  Moving to Dubai for work has given him the chance to travel, meet, and experience life with diverse cultures, and, basically, see the world. The move also allowed him to discover more about himself and realize how he wanted to make a life out of what he loves the most — having an independent, adaptable, and adventurous lifestyle.

2019 saw Michael setting foot on his 40th country, while his digital channels, continue to be an avenue where he can share his passion for exploration as well as architecture, with fellow enthusiasts.  As an avid traveler he sees journeys as another way of building wisdom, he shares, “It would be more worthwhile if we become explorers rather than tourists; to learn about different cultures and share memories with fellow travelers. We should also be more conscious about the environment, support local tourism, and be a good ambassador for the Philippines.”
