Hi, I am Bree!! – a travel enthusiast just like you – and this is my travel blog where I will be sharing my experiences, adventures, and loads of other traveling related information as I hop around the globe. I promise this is going to be an excursion as exciting as your own. And who knows, maybe I will inspire you to follow your heart (without going broke).
I’ll be honest, I have just started crossing destinations off my bucket list, and I think this is what is going to keep things exciting for my readers. I want you all to join me in my journey as I travel around the world, exploring new places and meeting different people. The fun has just started, so buckle up and be ready. But first, I want to share the story of how I became “The Traveling Bree”.
It won’t be wrong if I say that the hodophilia is hereditary. I most probably got it from my father who was a commercial airplane captain and my mom who happens to be a travel consultant. So, the bug is in the blood. One of the biggest perks of having parents who have traveled a lot is that you are never short of great advices and tips from people who have actually been there and done that.
While I grew up listening to my parents’ stories and reading their travelogues, my wanderlust was further fueled by my passion for photography. I may not be a pro but I love capturing the beauty I see in everything around me – people, places, animals, objects, moments, everything. I love learning about different cultures, meeting new people, trying different cuisines, seeking new adventures, and I even love to plan itineraries for friends and family. The adventure that truly changed everything was my destination wedding in Philippines. I planned the whole trip for a total of 50 people, and that is when I discovered that it is my true calling after all.
How Did I Get Here?
I wasn’t always a free spirit. I used to have a corporate job that i liked, however it hindered me from doing the things i love. One day, I met my first mentor who showed me that it is possible to turn a passion into a career. She taught me how to start my own lifestyle business from scratch without a business experience. I then decided to finally say goodbye to my 9-5. It was bittersweet, yet i was ready to explore the world and fulfill my dreams.
So, how do I manage to chase my dream while i was still retaining my day job?
There are many secret ingredients to this recipe. Weekend trips and cheap deals are two things I swear by. If you know where to look, you will always find some cheap deals. That’s how I started building my experience through short term travels. There is still a long way to go and through this blog, I want you to accompany me on my adventures.
How Am I Not Broke?
I know it sounds like a struggle – managing work, paying the bills, and trying to travel. Just as my luck went around, I found affiliate marketing. Through my own research and with the help of my first mentor, I learned how affiliate marketing could help you generate revenue and earn a lot while traveling or while staying at home. You can check out my Affiliate Marketing page to find out more about this option. Of course, aside from this, there are other ways of earning while traveling around the world and I will keep adding them to my Travel Resource page.
What Else Do I Have For You?
See, I told you I might inspire you to follow your heart without going broke. Other than my travel stories, I will be regularly sharing information about short-term travels for those who have limited time because of work and responsibilities. Going to a new place for 2-4 days is very possible if you know how to plan it right.
So all my fellow nomads! Bid farewell to those weekend blues. I worked in the corporate field and I know how it feels like to have a 2-week vacation a year. But if I am able to travel twice a month, so can you! Subscribe to my blog and let’s do it.
