When I started travel blogging in 2006, there were only a handful of travel blogs locally, and it’s mostly run by men. The travel blogging landscape has changed over the years and women are now traveling as much and as far as the guys. Here are some of my favorite Filipina travel bloggers:
Pinay Travel Junkie
Gay started traveling when she was single, continued traveling when she got married, and now, she’s on her way to being the perfect nomadic momma.
Pinay Solo Backpacker
Who’s afraid of getting lost? Gael isn’t definitely one of them! While some travelers fear losing their way, this fearless female traveler boldly goes where no one dares.
With an unquenchable thirst for adventure, Izah looks forward to each trip with gusto. whether she travel for work or for herself, she tackles each with the same enthusiasm and fervor.
Who said backpacking means dressing down and looking like an unwashed slob? Sole sisters Chichi and Lois are off to break stereotypes, traveling around Southeast Asia for five months with only the stylish clothes and accessories in their backpacks.
Lakwatsera de Primera
Claire can’t seem to keep still. One moment she’s in Australia, the next she’s in some far flung province in the Philippines. A very diligent travel blogger, she shares her adventures with a regularity lazy bloggers (me) can only dream of.
Monette of Flip’n travels
The double X chromosome of Flip’n Travels, Monette is another chicha travel who’s mighty talented with the pen. Their collaboration work on the Hello Stranger series is a must read.
First Time Travels
Don’t let the name fool you; Claire is a seasoned traveler who’s been to various places around the Philippines and the world. And she does it in between her hectic work for an NGO.
No Spam, No Virus, No Kiddin’!
Though it’s actually a personal blog, Chyng travels too much that it’s starting to evolve into a travel blog. Onting pilit nalang. She takes each trip as a challenge to experience something new. She has gone spelunking in Sagada, hiking in Batad, SCUBA diving in Bohol and wake boarding in Camarines Sur. What’s next, Chyng?
Fly and Get Lost
Technically not a traveler YET, Karen is itching to get on the road and on board the hopelessly-addicted-to-travel wagon. Right now, she’s planning her Southeast Asian adventure, which will mark her first time to travel overseas. All the best to you Karen, and I hope to travel with you someday
