My favorite blog
My favorite blog, I would say is ‘Bruised Passport‘. They have been an inspiration to me since the start. Their writings have helped so many people plan their trips and they have travelled to so many countries.
I love how amazing their pictures are. It’s unique in it’s own way. Other than them, I love all the travel bloggers I come across because they put in so much time and effort and I love seeing different travel blogs and travel bloggers.

Answers to the questions asked by Lucy
1. What is your favourite country?
- Favourite? I don’t have a favourite because I haven’t travelled to many places but ask me that question in a few years maybe haha. But for now I think Boracay, Phillipines is number 1.
- 2. If you could be anywhere in the world right now where would it be?
Since I am a water baby, I would love to go to any quiet beach. Actually, I wouldn’t mind going to the hills too.
3. Why did you start blogging?
I started out as a journal for myself to write about my trips, but I made it public so I could help others travel cheap and to good places.
4. Do you make money from blogging?
Not yet. My aim is not to make money but inspire people and just travel more.
5. One piece of advice to new bloggers?
Well, I am a new blogger too so I don’t have any advice but to tell them not to give up because blogging is hard work and if you don’t give in your 100% then it won’t work. You will also keep learning many new things when you start blogging, don’t get overwhelmed but take it one step at a time. When I started out, someone told me it’s a long term commitment so have patience and work hard.
6. How many countries have you visited?
I have stayed in 5 different countries, other than that I have started traveling around South East Asia and have a few trips coming up.

My parents and people who have been by my side since the beginning. I value whoever is in my life. AND PIZZA!!!!
