Think of travel, and you think of the things you do, the people you meet, the new experiences you have. But the place itself is the invisible and most important character in every journey. Place is not background; it is an active participant in the story. In GRID Vol. 2, we reflect on the role of the land in shaping the story, and in shaping all of us. To parse our relationship with the land is to answer the existential question: Why are we here?

This issue may not provide the answer, but we continue to ask questions through our stories—the journey of a healer in Puerto Princesa who walked the entire island; the seafarers and fisherfolk of Bantayan; and one artist's devotion to the marble island, Romblon, serving as his inspiration and his home. And in asking why we are here, we go on to peruse the places we choose not to leave.
