Julia is British and moved to the Philippines in 2013 after 11 years in Hong Kong, a stint in Dubai and 5 years working in a resort in the Maldives.

Julia fell in love with the Philippines on her first visit and is proud to call it home. She has lived and traveled in many areas including Manila, Cebu and the surrounding islands such as Bohol, Malapascua and Kalanggaman, Negros, Panay, Boracay, Guimaras, Coron, Calauit Island, Palawan and so much more.

She calls Bantayan Island off the northern tip of Cebu home.

Between her work, travels and life as an expat, Julia has many travel skills and her knowledge of traveling the Philippines can’t be beat. She specializes in off-the-beaten-track experiences.

When not writing for this site and helping people plan their travel, Julia is island hopping and exploring everything Philippines.


Julia’s educational background, her writing skills and her experiences have her perfectly placed to share and teach you how to plan your own trip to the Philippines.

She hopes that her writing here will inspire you to have your own Filipino adventure.
