Well, hello! I’m Sarah, a small town girl from Bantayan Island, Philippines. I left my 9-5 job as a Software Engineer of 6 years at a Fortune 500 company to travel the world. I have a huge list of excursions in the next decades and I’m always on the lookout for the next adventure.
Here’s a short timeline of my transition to the freelancing world:
2011 : started working for NCR Corporation
2014 : founded this travel blog
2015 : started working part-time as a freelance writer
2017 : left my job at NCR Corp. and launched a full time career as a freelance writer, editor and proofreader
I enjoy a good day out in the beach, learning foreign languages (I speak 5 languages), hanging out with my awesome friends or binge watching sitcoms. Here’s 10 Ten Things You Need to Know About Me so we can get even more personal 🙂
I travel with my husband, Olivier, but you might wonder why you barely see him in my photos. Well, he said he’d rather take my photos than be in one. But, when stars align, I can convince him to pop over for a selfie or strike a pose otherwise, I take some candid shots just like this one. He’s simply amazing and very supportive of my travel blogging. Merci mon chéri!
Our paths first crossed in the small town of Oslob, Philippines. I was backpacking with couchsurfers from China, Japan, Germany and Singapore while he was on a diving trip across the Philippines. We’ve only had short conversations back then and didn’t even know each other’s name. Little did we know, fate was sorting out something for us. Our paths crossed again a day later when we moved to Moalboal, about 80km from Oslob. This time, we finally had some proper introduction and long, interesting conversations about traveling, diving and what not. The rest, as they say, is history… ❤
We are both backpackers at heart and would love to keep it that way. But occasionally, we like to enjoy the finer things in life too because why not!
The best things in life are the people you love, the places you’ve seen, and the memories you’ve made along the way.
