Hi, my name is Cham and this is my blog. It will focus on hiking, travel, photography, and anything adventurous.
Why write now if I hate writing even before? Well, let’s just say I realized that I already went on to many adventures worth telling but I just kept it to myself. I took too many pictures, hundreds of it, every trip. But only one or two are posted on my Facebook account. The rest, I keep it to myself (and very little few goes to Instagram).
The reason why I want to put up a blog is to share my personal experiences while hiking and traveling. To set your expectations, I don’t travel for work (but I work to travel LOL) so the time difference between my travels would sometimes be for x number of months. It will also not be extravagant, as I fund my own trips and I do not have any sponsors.
I would also like to share my work experience in this blog, and how it correlates with traveling. I worked in the BPO industry for 6 years (which is pretty toxic by the way) hence, I wanted an escape. Let me share how traveling kept me sane amidst all the stress I encountered at work. I’ll also tell you how I transitioned into a full-time freelancer – the job that gave me MORE FREEDOM to wander.
I always knew I was born to travel. When I was a little girl, as far as I could remember, I always wanted to be somewhere that I have never been before. School field trips had always been the highlight of my school year. I was always an adventurer back then, even dreamed of reaching the moon and stars when I grow older.
Growing up, I am always never content in one spot and that one spot is always old. My feet are always restless as my soul. I am constantly looking for the strange, exotic and unusual in the mundane.
I must say that I am still a childish fool who refuses to accept the monotony of the daily life. I am always ready to go anywhere, especially if it’s somewhere new. My head is always up on the clouds, my eyes on a map, and my heart truly belongs to the world.
Traveling gives me so much bliss. The smell of a foreign territory makes me happy, and airports are probably one of my most favorite places ever. I am that kind of girl who loves to be immersed in different cultures and history and diversity. I am always unafraid to taste the world’s different flavors.
