Traveler of the Month: Joeffre Ubalde

Traveler Name: Joeffre Ubalde

Hometown: Brooklyn, New York

Occupation: Registered Nurse

Trips I’ve taken with FnEZ: South Thailand, Portugal, Spain, Bali, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica.


Countries I’ve traveled to otherwise: Philippines

Why I travel: Always trying to do what the locals do. Traveling helps me relate to others by culturally immersing myself in their lifestyle. As a foodie, best way to get to know the land is through the stomach. From spices, exotic fruits and fancy drinks, every place I’ve been to, has something to show for.


My favourite travel memory with FnEZ: Wat Pho Temple was a great memory. From the shrines and colors, learning the religion and customs is an experience to remember.

My most embarrassing travel story: I’m always embarrassed to say my goodbyes and cry my eyes out. When you create such connections in a short period a out of time, it’s bittersweet to let go so easily.


Top 3 items I can’t travel without: A good play list to share. Tiger Balm (those who know, know). Baby wipes (it’s a must, you’ll thank me later).

What I love about traveling with FnEZ: The ability what this company is capable of creating. Friendship and sometimes even love. I get it, it’s a travel company, but it goes beyond travels. It creates everlasting… I repeat, everlasting bonds. I’m grateful to have any experience with anyone who wants to have an adventure. FnEZ taught me to speak with my heart and open my mind to possibilities of pure joy.


Next bucket list item I need to check off:

Swim at the Devils Pool – Victoria Falls

Actually go Bungie Jumping

My future travel plans: Philippines East (already booked), Philippines West (November anyone?), Peru
