Former actress Paula Peralejo, who is best known for her role in the youth-oriented series "Tabing Ilog," is now busy running a travel agency with her husband, Charlie Fernandez.
A sister to actress-host Rica, the younger Peralejo started her showbiz career in 1992 as one of the cast members of the kiddie gag show "Ang TV."
She went on to star in a number of ABS-CBN series, including "Gimik," before taking on her most recognizable role as Anne in "Tabing Ilog," which ran for four years until 2003.
However, in 2005, Peralejo decided to take a break from acting to focus on her studies.
She graduated magna cum laude in 2008 from University of the Philippines in Diliman with a bachelor's degree in philosophy and a minor in tourism.
Her studies in tourism, Peralejo said, are of good use as she opened in November last year her travel agency with Fernandez.
Speaking on ABS-CBN's "My Puhunan," the 29-year-old Peralejo said the four-month-old business, the online-based "Our Restless Feet Travel And Tours," is a natural fit for her and her husband as they are passionate about traveling.
They have so far visited 73 out of the 81 provinces in the Philippines, and traveled to 22 countries in the years they have been together.
"Actually, when we started the business, we were thinking, 'Naku, uso pa ba 'yung travel agency?' I was proven wrong," Peralejo said. "Actually, a lot of people, as long as your price point is good, [they do business with you]."
Our Restless Feet, which the couple put up with a P100,000 capital, is run solely by Peralejo and Fernandez and offers to arrange details of a customer's travel, including flights, tour packages, itinerary, accommodations or cruises, and insurance.
"I'm glad na I resigned from show business and then I went back to school and then I started traveling. And that's when I discovered what I really want to do," she said.
