Hi. I’m Sarah. Welcome to TRAVELOSIO.com!

I’m no fortune teller but I’m pretty sure your wanderlust and sense of adventure led you to this travel blog. If you are looking for travel inspiration from a small town girl juggling work and travel then, you have come to the right place.

profile circleI’m from the tropical paradise of Bantayan Island, Philippines. I work for a “Fortune 500 Company” as a Software Engineer for over 5 years now BUT I am not here to talk about C++, Object Oriented Programming, Dr Watsons and other geeky stuffs in fact, I will make sure you will hear none of it in this blog (lucky you). I am here to be your travel guide to off-the-beaten-track places, backpacker life, touristy things and maybe luxury destinations (because why not!). Learn more about me here.

Put your adventure goggles on and read on! Happy travels and cheers to wanderlust

Hello Raja Ampat! – February 7, 2016

Omg! This place is super awesome! We saw at least 5 sharks from our overwater dining bungalow on the first night. How cool is that! Just 10 meters from our bungalow is the house reef that is bursting with marine diversity! I can’t wait to meet the oceanic manta, tunas, jackfish, bumphead parrotfish, pygmy sea horse and millions of other fish friends🙂

I’m a certified diver! – December 24, 2015

After 3 days of theory and practical training, I am now a certified Open Water diver. I got certified through SSI at French Kiss Dive Center in Koh Tao, Thailand. I can now dive as deep as 18 meters and bask in the glory of the underwater world.

Freakin excited! The Mister and I are heading to Bali. I’m cooking up a mix of ‘luxurious’ collaborations and backpacker itinerary to enjoy Bali at its finest. We might do some wreck diving if weather permits. If you will be in Bali on October, give me a holler so we can grab a drink or two.🙂
