About Me

My photo
After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 125 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.

 January 26th to April 9th

This trip started with an 8 night stay in Isla Mujeres, Mexico. My flight on January 31st to Manila originated in Cancun per my plan. The flight was a nightmare with 6 hours to San Francisco and 4 hour  layover. Then a 13 hour flight to Seoul with MASK REQUIRED ON PLANE, Another 3 hour layover and 6 hour flight to Manila which arrived late causing me to miss the flight to Boracay. Bought another ticket and arrived on February 2nd at 3 pm.

(1) BORACAY: I will stay at nice hotel (Ferra Premier) for 6 nights and then fly to Palawan.

(2) EL NIDO, PALAWAN: I spent the 1st 4 nights at Frendz Hostel to take advantage of the backpacker vibe and swimming pool on the 6th floor with great views.

FLY TO VIETNAM on February 19th.


DANANG: Week on beach in Danang before Thailand. Highlight was Dragon Bridge spewing fire.

March: Fly to Phuket, Thailand for more beach time.

March 30, 2023. Fly to Tokyo, Japan for CHERRY BLOSSOMS 🌸
