About

I’m Julia, a twenty-something from Manila, Philippines. I have been called a hippie and a tree-hugger, both of which are possibly true.

I love the outdoors and don’t mind getting toasted in the sun. I love it so much in fact that in 2012 I left the comforts of the cubicle for good just so I can be out and about anytime the road beckons.

I write to fund my travels. (Weddings? Check. Lung cancer? Sure. Termites inside your home? Bring it. Literotica? Now we’re talking!) But mostly I write because I can wax poetic about words. All. Day. Long. Try me.

My next adventure will be the greatest yet: relocating to Vancouver, Canada to plant roots with my partner while taking up a second degree in Creative Writing (told you I liked words). Also, all the trees I can hug!

As much as I’d like to tell you that this is a cool travel blog filled with tips and tricks, it’s not. There’s already a multitude of that online, and frankly, we don’t need any more.

This blog is a repository of memories from the road – from searing moments to interminable limbos, just a little showcase of the awesomeness of this big, big, world.

It’s also an outlet and a platform for my crazy, funny, dramatic, roller-coaster of a story as a brown girl facing borders, as part of an arduous three-year-long long distance romance, as half of a soon-to-be co-habitating couple (isn’t that scarier than LDR, really?), and as a dreamer in these mad times (because, you know, I’m going back to school for Creative Writing).

Although in truth, this blog will most likely contain more lulls because my life is nowhere near as interesting as I just made it sound.

Also, blogging? Super fun!
