Enrico Dee is a twenty-something who simply enjoys life. He was born in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental, and took up BS Computer Science at the University of St. La Salle.

He currently enjoys life as a full time travel blogger.
During free time, he does what he really loves most: PHOTOGRAPHY. He may not be the best photographer, but still, he enjoys sharing his shots through his blog.

Aside from photography, Enrico’s other passion is gallivanting around the country. He has been to several key destinations in the Philippines like Batanes, Coron, Sagada, Banaue, Cebu, Iloilo, Guimaras, Subic, Clark, Vigan, Baguio, Dumaguete, Boracay, Legazpi, Naga, El Nido, Cagayan de Oro, Davao, etc.

He has also seen some of the country’s most colorful and lively festivals perform. Among them: Bacolod’s Masskara Festival, La Carlota City’s Pasalamat Festival, Iloilo’s Dinagyang, Tultugan, and Pintados de Pasi Festivals, Cebu’s Sinulog, Dumanjug’s Sinanggiyaw, Sibulan’s Yagyag Festival, San Carlos City’s PintaFlores, bayawan’s Panagbenga, Davao’s Kadayawan Festival Bukidnon’s Kaamulan Festival and Laoag City’s Pamulinawen Festival.

Rightly so, Dee chose the domain name Byahilo if only to illustrate his passion for gallivanting around the country’s more than 7000 islands.

With such travel experience and passion for capturing moments on film, Enrico has certainly lived up to the name of Byahilo, wherein every photo has a story, and every story is an adventure in itself.

Julius Rocas, The Four-Eyed Journal

Enrico Dee spends most of his free time exploring the Philippines, where he was born and raised. …He leaves you no excuse not to visit the Philippines.

Anni Poulsen, The Travel Cooler, London, UK

If there was one word to describe Enrico Dee’s Byahilo, it would be: passion. His unquenchable thirst for life has him combining his passion for travel and photography and turning it into Byahilo. When you read Byahilo, you not only get a virtual trip to the best spots in the Philippines, but you also get to find out that he’s doing what he loves, and getting away with it.

His motto in life: Enjoy life at its best!
