words & wanderlust


Hi! My name is Shane. I’m the voice behind this blog. I like to travel without spending too much. It is my love for arts and culture that drives me to see more places and share my experiences through this blog.

If you are new to this blog, my home page will help you to navigate and know what content you can find here.

I grew up in Manila and moved to the USA in 2018. My work experience is mostly related to customer service. Writing is something that I enjoy doing.

I don’t remember when the travel bug kicked in for me. All I know is that ever since I was a kid, I dreamed of traveling around the world. The first country I visited was South Korea. That was in 2015. It was also in South Korea that I started this blog although I have already been blogging before but for a different purpose.

Other than counting countries, I think it is more important to count the numbers of unforgettable moments which can happen anywhere. I will return to a place over and over if I like it enough.

Let’s hang out

    1. Thank you, and you’re welcome! I’m not a very good photographer and I just use my phone camera for taking pictures. Some of the pictures are from people I traveled with, or people I met while traveling.


    1. Awww! You’re welcome! This is also a new blog, although I started in 2012, I didn’t do it continuously. Your adventures are awesome. And thank you for dropping by!
