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 have visited 104 countries so far on six continents. I started this blog in 2019 after returning from an adventurous trip. So in this blog, you will find some practical information on places I have discovered during my trip.
My life adventure started when I moved to Belgium in 1985. So many stories behind why I end up on another continent, but I’ll make it short here. I was bitten by my ambition to move to another place, so here I am, living the life I always wanted. And continue exploring 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. Now that our life is back after the pandemic, I want to visit many places in the world. I have been traveling for about 25 years. But I wasn’t so addicted before as of now. Planning, researching, and booking that’s what I’m doing.
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!
