Hi! I’m Yann! Welcome to my little space on earth.
A Filipina who loves to take photos, rocks and stuffed cows. I travel and I try to write about it and my life to keep an online journal to share with my family and friends. I also want to somehow inspire and help those who would like to see the places I have seen. I always travel with my favorite cows Gulliver and his brother Zorolliver.
Flying over the island of Palawan I realized that life is short and the world is big! I always loved to travel and I mostly do it on a budget, and I vowed to myself that one day no matter how old I am I will travel the world. My plans of seeing the world was put aside as I decided to go to back to school trying to get a Geology Masters degree in the University of the Philippines in 2012. Doing this changed me, since then I was able to see a lot of places in the Philippines that are not touristic at all. I was exposed to hardcore science, educated in a totally different travel style than what I was used to (backpacking for weeks and sleeping bag in tow, no electricity and trekking and mapping kilometers of land). I knew what it was like to rough it out (traversing unchartered terrains, seeing waterfalls that no one else but locals have seen, seeing the earth differently as if wearing a new lens, picking up and collecting rock samples and discovering the history of the earth by studying them). Learning and having a different perspective of our planet earth filled me with more passion to go out there and see and document as many places as I can (so please forgive me if I have scientific posts here as well).
With my Philippine passport Visas can be a bit of challenge but I will try to visit as much countries as I can (if not all). I want to visit as much UNESCO world heritage sites (cause I’m a romantic) and hopefully throw in a few GSSP (Global Stratotype Section and Point) Golden Spikes (because I’m a nerd).
Hopefully you will enjoy your time here. Do not hesitate to drop me a line if you have any questions or if you want to work with me or sponsor my trips (that would be very nice! :D)
Thank you for joining me as I live my dream and tick my (ever growing) bucket list one by one.
