Welcome to my blog! I’m Simon, and traveling, airplanes, and food are my obsessions.
Born in the Philippines, grew up and currently based in San Francisco. I got into this “hobby” back in 2011 when I came across this site called Flyertalk and it totally changed my life. Now I fly about 200,000 miles per year on average using a combination of very good (and cheap) fares, and miles/points. I’ve been very fortunate to have flown over a Million miles and am working on my second Million. I started documenting, and writing about my travels on Facebook and Instagram, and in 2016 I started my YouTube channel and this blog.
I’m an aviation geek, and have been one for as far as I can remember. I love talking about airplanes, and the passenger experience especially when I fly First or Business Class. I’m one of those people who believe that the journey is equally as important as the destination.
Also, as the name of the blog suggests, I’m a big foodie! I like airplane food and I like to eat my way through the places that I visit, as well as go back to my favorite food destinations – and yes, I take a lot of pictures of my food!
I’ve learned a lot during the last few years that I’ve been traveling. It has been enriching to encounter first hand different cultures, customs, and food – and I’m still learning. I’m hoping to inspire others to travel more and see our beautiful world.
