Rodolfo Javier, Jr

I am someone who is deeply intrigued by different cultures of the world, and the histories that brought us to what and who we are today.  It's always an adventure to see more through the eyes of the locals, whether it be through the food, language or architecture, and the greatest adventures I have are experienced with my favorite travel buddies -- my family.
