I’m Violet. I’m not rich but I love to travel. I aim to visit the 7,107 islands of the Philippines and then go see the world; I am no tourist, they only do sight-seeing. I’m an explorer. I went out not to have a luxurious vacation but I go because I want to learn new things, meet new people and encounter new experiences. And most especially, I want to inspire ordinary people to travel and make some difference to the world.

♥ My DIY travels (cheapest way I could) yet bringing home the best adventures and life-changing encounters. I’m doing it, so can you…

♥ Bringing my ordinary travel bag and small backpack, 2nd-hand-down Sony camera (no DSLR), cellphone and good attitudes for my trips.

♥ All pictures were taken by me, if not, photo credits are inserted.

♥ I will also feature in this page my travel buddies and fellow aspiring photographers.

♥ This Photo-blog-page is dedicated to those people who encourage me to become a better me. 

♥ I want to bring the world closer to myself and inspire others to do the same.

    • Thank you more for dropping by my sleeping blog. 🙂 Masgusto ko na kapwa Pinoy ang nagbabasa kaysa sa dayuhan. Salamat, sir. Basta wag kalimutan ang PH at siguradong lagi ka nyang hinitay. 🙂

      • sarap sana magpunta sa sagada kaya lang alam mo naman pagmay dalang bata baka hindi nila maenjoy kasi more on hiking eh 🙂 don’t worry I’ll be there this August for a vacation 🙂



      • Yup! Sagada is for an adventure-seeker. Pero kung kasama ng mga bata ang dad nila, doing adventure, it would be fun.
        Cool! Let’s pray for good weather para makagala ng marami! 🙂 Thanks again, sir!

  1. This is awesome Violet, you seem to have a genuine inspiration and motivation to travel and share.

    Hope to see more of your journeys, especially conquering the 7,107 islands of the Philippines :p


    • Thanks for appreciating, Jean! 🙂

      7,107 islands and become a tourism ambassador, that’s the plan but if not, at least I had done something good for myself and for my country (dream on!)… and generally to share that traveling, it’s not all about money but the courage to get out and see the world + PH of course. 🙂

      Looking forward to meet you in one of the PH trails, it’s more fun in the PH and more powers in your own journey! Cheers!:)
