About Me


Great advocate of nature. Blogger. Aspiring book author. Travel and Photography buff


I love traveling!!

There's something in traveling that I find very liberating, it's the joy and excitement of discovering other places, marveling at its breathtaking natural wonders and spectacular landmarks, exploring culture and tradition and learning from its history.

I travel not only to escape the clutters of everyday life in the city but because I want to see the other side of life beyond my station, I want to experience how it feels like being in a completely different environment, and learn something new.

I travel because life does not end in the surrounding I currently lived. It revolves around and the discoveries are endless and priceless and the memories are eternal. Traveling picks up my appetite in life. 

Basically, I love writing, and recording my travel exploits is something I find very fulfilling. During my travels I would closely observe the activities, the culture, lifestyle, and the amusement and record the details in my diary. It's a good way of keeping the memories alive.

My ultimate dream is to embark into a grand leisure trip abroad, Europe, the Caribbean, French Polynesia are some of the world's best holiday escapes I longed to visit. I am also dreaming to experience Autumn in the New England region (USA) or see Cherry Blossoms at Spring in Japan.

I enjoyed embarking into a long road trip and taking photos. I love being close to nature, the scenery of the lush tropical environment, breathtaking vistas, mountain landscape, beautiful sea side, cool and breezy countryside always soothe my tired mind and body. Nature tripping is my ultimate definition of experiencing life to the fullest.

I've been blogging since 2007 but I started my travel blog only in 2009. I ventured for a time into SEO article writing for internet marketers (project-based), accepting writing projects until 2013. My ultimate goal in life is to really make writing a full time career, travel blogging in particular, and travel around the world, share my experience and tell my travel stories.

I am a country girl by heart. I like the calm life that the nature provides. I hate parties and never hang-out with friends. I love being at home, it's more peaceful and quiet and I have all the freedom to work on my two passions -- writing and cooking. 

I was born and raised in the province of Surigao del Sur at the outskirt of Mindanao peninsula directly facing the mighty Pacific Ocean, this explains why I love beaches and the countryside.

I earned my Master's degree in Business Administration at the Ateneo de Davao University, Philippines. In 2013, I moved in the country's capital, Manila, to seek better career opportunities.
