For 110 days, Roman Trofimov called the Manila International Airport home. Back in March, the Estonian native was traveling throughout Southeast Asia when he was denied an entry visa to the Philippines due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, Roman was forced to stay inside the airport and practically fend for himself from March 20th all the way until July 7th, when he was finally able to get a flight back home. If it weren't for Roman sharing his story on social media, who knows how long he would have been stuck in that airport?
