GOLDEN ISLAND SEÑORITA is a travel and lifestyle blog that opened last May 5, 2018 and it aims to provide quality readings related to traveling and adventure. May it be exploring the great outdoors, riding the waves, running on familiar roads or faraway trails, or even as simple as roaming around cities and dining at restaurants. I will be sharing itineraries, expenses, tips & tricks, books that I’ve read during my travels, and the lessons/reflections that I learned from it.
I also aim to challenge the norm that traveling is only for the wealthy. Many people are under the impression that world travel requires boatloads of savings – that’s not true at all.
WHY GOLDEN ISLAND SEÑORITA?
Golden Island – I was born and raised in the Philippines, a tropical country where the sun shines all through the years, at least most of the times.
Señorita – a Spanish title or form of address used to or of an unmarried girl or woman; similar to the English ‘Miss’.
- To encourage my readers to be well-traveled, take risks, and be unafraid to seek and embrace adventure both literally and figuratively.
- That traveling is attainable, affordable, and doable by sharing detailed information such as travel guides & itineraries, practical budget tips and honest reviews & recommendations so you can travel more for less!
- To explore, appreciate and travel even within their backyards. It’s easy to get caught up in wishing to be somewhere else, even when our own cities or countries are filled with amazing destinations and things to do.
- Hopefully encourage travelers to come visit my beautiful country, the Philippines. #ItsMoreFunInThePhilippines ❤
I am known among my family, friends and acquaintances as an urban roamer, a travel junkie, and someone you wouldn’t dare to challenge because most likely I’ll do it (Exhibit A). I often get asked about the hippest places to go to in the metro or the best travel destinations here in the Philippines. I also arrange travels for them in some occasions, provide itineraries, budget plans, tips and tricks on how to make the most out of their adventures. So I thought of sharing it with the world.
I have been blogging on and off since 2015 but it’s only recently that I would like to take it more seriously and ramp up the readership. Most of the things that I blogged back then were about “adulting” and financial literacy but this time, I want to focus mainly on traveling and discovering exciting places here and around the world.
Travel Guides – Places that I’ve been to and wrote about, itineraries, budget advice, travel hacks, and many more.
