Hi, I’m Belinda and welcome to my travel blog. I’m originally from the Philippines, but I have lived almost my whole life in Belgium in the Flemish area of West Flanders. Travel is one of my passions, and I’m fortunate to be able to do so. I started this blog in 2019 after returning from an adventurous trip to keep it as a journal, but then I realized why not share my experience with you. In this blog, you will find practical information on places and things I discovered during my trip.
My life adventure started when I moved to Belgium in 1985. So many stories behind why I ended up on another continent, but I’ll make it short here. I was bitten by my ambition to move to another country and Belgium was an ideal home base. So here I am, living the life I always wanted, and continuing to explore the world on my own.
I’ve been back on my solo adventure since 2021 – as you can see from my recent blog posts, I’m traveling alone. It’s been too long since the last time I traveled solo. I love being on the road by myself. I’m not a selfish person, but I find it easy that I don’t have to take anyone into account. So more travel destinations coming up soon!
Seychelles is heaven on earth. The most beautiful island I have been to where there is no influx of tourists. I’m not a beach traveler, but it was hard to resist when I saw the white powdery sandy beaches. They say it is only for wealthy travelers, I’m not rich, but I can afford the trip without breaking my bank account. So I combined the trip with Mauritius since I was close to it. A once-in-a-lifetime trip.
I have been to many beautiful countries in the world, but there’s only one place in my favorite, New Zealand. I rarely return to a country I have already visited, but I would like to revisit NZ one day. I was in NZ in 2009, just before the first earthquake happened. I’m curious to go back and see what it looks like now. Why is this my favorite? The abundant landscape and the amiable people. It is a magical place!
