his idea has been brewing in our mind for a long time. Mainly because we are tropical transplants in the cold world that is Iceland. Living as brown people in a homogeneously white society has its perils. There are often misconceptions, miscommunication and misunderstandings. We thought that it might do our Icelandic neighbors good if they experience first hand, the Philippines. Hence, Travel Exchange (TRx). We connect Icelandic thought influencers (artists, writers, politicians, environmentalists, etc) to their counterparts in the Philippines and spend time with them. In the same way, we connect the Pinoy thought influencers with those in Iceland.
It´s like an artist residency with a conscience.
The idea also evolved into US developing a page for our friends making their way to Iceland. There are more of you every year and we are so happy that this is so! We were getting a bit lonely here at the edge of the Arctic. This is what THIS website is about.
Nope, you are not disrupting our lives by asking us to help out with the itinerary. We might even join you! See, we even too up a video of us traveling with friends who happened to arrive at the same time in Iceland from the Philippines by way of Berlin, San Francisco and South Africa. Enjoy!
