About the Travel Blogger

Hello! I am Queenie Anne Elizabeth Gumiran, a Philippine-based travel blogger and freediver.

I stepped out of the threshold to explore the wonders of what’s dubbed as ‘Pearl of the Pacific‘ has to offer. I met a lot of people, made new friends, got oriented with different cultures and languages and tasted food I have never tried before. I’ve done things I never thought I would do. My wandering sole brought me to places I’ve never thought of visiting. Traveling makes me infinite and sky was the only limit I had. It was beautiful. Philippines effortlessly made me fall in love with it. I was not even halfway of visiting its 83 provinces but I have fallen deeply, madly in love with its wonders.

The travel blogger in me puts the stories and beauty in words and share it to the world; because it’s only in this way that I could bring you to another dimension, take a journey with me. For several times, words would fail me. Those places left me speechless – lost in awe to the surreal escapism I had.

Why don’t you?

It’s hard at first, yes. You have to adjust. But if you really love it, to the point that it has become your passion, it will be more than just a getaway or an escape – you’ll seriously find a way to do it; and you will do it until it has become your life.

I once heard a wise man said, “It’s better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing than a long life spent in a miserable way.”

True enough, life is meant to be lived colorfully, in a way you want it to be, in a way that you will enjoy it. I intend to color mine with my adventures – people, food, places, everything! How about you?

Nothing else could amount to the self- fulfillment and happiness I feel every time I get to see the wonders this world has right in front of me – this wonders that get me, All. The. Time. I wouldn’t trade a night under the stars, lying on the sand for anything; nor a hot summer day, getting a dose of vitamin sea and getting golden under the sun.


When I travel, I find myself infinite, limitless. I want to jump on every cliff, dive in the deep, climb every mountain, chase waterfalls, the glorious sunshine and breath taking sunsets, surf every wave, feel the rain on my face and the sun on my shoulders, swim and feel the water on my skin, sink my feet on the sand, count the shooting stars at night til I fall asleep on the grass or the sand, surf every wave….I want to do everything while I still can.

Maybe a few could understand how I am deeply, madly in love with traveling – my passion; how I spend time dreaming and planning for my next trip and going for it; how I would drive down the life’s fast lane, speeding through red lights just to be in paradise – making reality better than what I have dreamed of.
