Kevin is a multilingual (Chinese, Japanese, etc) travel industry professional who is currently back in Manila after being based in Tokyo for two years. After starting out with his professional life, he has since embarked on a never-ending journey to grow his travel experiences and number of foreign languages learned.

www.thetravelguyshops.com is about the adventures, misadventures and shopping finds from over 30 countries he has visited so far before he turns 30 years old, a goal he set for himself in 2015 to achieve. The blog also features mileage programs, travel credit card and airport lounge reviews. Contrary to any misconceptions, he did not rely on any complimentary press trips or financial assistance from family but instead self-funded his travels to all 30+ countries.

Kevin hopes to be appointed envoy or Foreign Affairs secretary someday. But for now, follow his adventures on this blog and: instagram.com/@thetravelguyshops and thetravelguyshops@gmail.com
