About Me

Once in a while, I think about my life working in a corporate world and doing some research work from 9:00 o’clock in the morning till 6:00 o’clock in the evening and most of the time going home very late because of work loads and overtime. It seemed life was just passing me by and such a waste of a lifetime! I left my work to travel and enjoy life with my partner. Life is too short not to do the things that doesn’t make us feel happy and fulfilled. We both quit our jobs, I was once a documentation officer and researcher in a Canadian Immigration Consultancy firm in the Philippines and my partner was a senior geologist in Australia. Occasionally I accept freelance job doing documentation processing and consultancy work on Canadian Immigration Visa, accepting photo shoot for birthdays, weddings and pictorial. Photography is one of my passions as well aside from travel. I love art and all the beauty that surrounds it. Photography is art. Photography is my way of telling the world what I feel and think.

I created this site as a venue in documenting my travel trips and photo folio for my photography.

Brad and I are travel enthusiasts, we love to explore and see the beauty of the world, meeting new people, trying new foods, learning new cultures and even touching ones life as well. Travel is affordable to us as we live in a very frugal and minimalistic lifestyle to save as much money as we can. We prioritize what we need, what is important and cut back other luxuries.

Growing up as a little girl, I always wanted to travel and explore the world. I once dreamed to become a flight attendant but the dream job wasn’t for me. I am not gifted with height (chuckling). I have this wonderous spirit within me. My restless soul won’t stay in one place. I have to go and move somewhere else. This is the kind of lifestyle that I want to adopt. There is no greater learning experience and more rewarding than to travel. It is a life changing opportunity.

When I started my travel journey with my partner, I became addicted to this kind of lifestyle. I don’t want to stop travelling. Travelling completes me and makes my life worth living. As I said to myself “Travel while you are young and able. Don’t worry about the money just make it work”. We are very fortunate that we are able to travel and see places that are different, beautiful and inspiring. I want to learn many things before I die. I want to look back on life when I am older and love everything I’ve done and every experience I’ve had.

For now I am enjoying my life with my partner. We will never stop travelling. The word is so vast to explore, so many things to discover and to see.

If you like to travel like us and enjoy the freedom along the road, start packing your things, come out and make millions of memories.

There’s one thing that I want to pass on to you, that I am NOT special. I’m not crazy smart. I don’t have a writing degree and I’m certainly not a grammar expert. I just love to share my travel experiences and photos that I hope would be able to inspire you.

    1. Quitting our jobs was the best thing we’ve ever done. Good thing that my partner and I are very frugal. We live in a very modest way. We appreciate the smaller things in life. We are not very materialistic persons. We want to travel and enjoy life to the fullest.

  4. Very interesting, interesting, and honest “About Me” there.

    One of the many things that makes me one with you is knowing that we have such a big world with so many places to discover, culture to immerse in, foods to feast on, and experiences to treasure, and, above all, lessons to learn in the process.

    Let’s keep those things rolling!

    1. So true my friend. Travelling has made me the person that I am and I am grateful to experience new things, I developed friendships with people who didn’t look or act like me. This taught me to embrace, not fear, experiences and relationships that were outside my comfort zone.
