Girl We Love: April Batican

 

Tell us about yourself.

I used to be in advertising, but now I'm in production – watch out for my movie projects haha! 🎬 Tbh, I'm still in the process of finding and getting to know myself better. One thing's for sure though, I've always been passionate about traveling. I enjoy the beach, climbing mountains, and getting lost in the city. I travel because I love the rush of experiencing something that I’ve only seen in pictures, and the overwhelming and humbling feeling of going to beautiful places.

What emoji best describes you?

☀️🌊🌴💁🏻💯🦄✨

What are your travel must-haves?

Cute bikini, shades, trekking sandals, and plastic bags!

What do you like most about Wink?

I super love the service! I was especially impressed with the orientation, and how the technicians really know their stuff  👌

How does Wink help you with your travels?

Wink keeps me beach ready and worry free! With Wink, I'm not afraid to show a little skin 😉

Top 3 favorite places you've been.

I don't have a favorite because every place I visit is a unique experience! ✨ But if I really have to choose, it would be Islas de Gigantes in Iloilo. It’s blessed with pristine white sand beaches, clear blue waters, jagged rock formations, and bountiful fresh seafood that it so was hard for me to say goodbye to the place. Second would be Carbin Reef in Negros Occidental, and third would be the White Sand Dunes in Mũi Né, Vietnam.

If you can be anywhere right now, where would you be and why?

Siargao, because I've never been there! ️ ☀️I'd love to experience Chile (it's on the top of my bucketlist) I'd also like to go to Indonesia.

Best travel advice you've ever received?

Go with an open mind. I plan my trips intensively (my friends can vouch for this) – I like sticking to the itinerary to make the most out of my trip, but it doesn't hurt to go off course too! Keeping an open mind and leaving my arte behind also helps me embrace the exotic, smell all the smells, eat (almost) anything and everything, and meet new people.
