The globe-trotting lifestyle shown on the travel and documentary channels is but a reality that the couple who owns this home has been living for most of their adult life. Now they've settled in Manila, but who knows when they'll zip to another country again? With the help of their realtor, they chanced upon the perfect house--a case, they say, of love at first sight.

The couple wanted their Manila home to be a celebration of the places they had been to. With that task in mind, they enlisted the help of designer Vivian V. Gacad. They wanted to show every single thing that they’d accumulated over their travels, but they didn't want their house to be a museum. Find out how they were able to do this by viewing the gallery below.
