Hello! I’m Karla from TravelwithKarla.com. I travel to broaden my horizon. I want to see places in person than in books and social media. It’s the reason why I travel once a week.
I’ve only been to two countries: Philippines and Korea. I’m a traveler who prefers frequent short breaks than one long vacation. I say this for two reasons. First, it keeps my blog fresh. Long vacations give me a lot of backlogs. Second, it’s more budget friendly.
Home is where my loved ones are located. Home is not necessarily a physical place. It’s a place where you find comfort. I’m a native of the Philippines but I lived alone in Korea for two years. One time, I had a month long vacation in the Philippines. It was great, I had the chance to catch up with my family and my childhood friends. When I came back to my own place in Korea, I said, “I’m home!” It’s funny but I felt so comfortable living alone.
I’m the Pearl of the Orient, Philippines.
I’ve been traveling for more than two years now. It’s not continuous because I’m working but I try to do it at least once a week and every holidays.
This is really tough. My favorite country is Korea. I love how they preserved their culture despite the development of technology. My favorite place in Korea is the Garden of the Morning Calm.
I ate live octopus in Korea! A lot of friends get surprised whenever I show them that video.
I would say that traveling with my family is the best experience I had. I’ve been traveling alone for the past years and it really felt good when I invited my mom and my sister to visit me in Korea.
I tried their zip line and went back using a bicycle. It was one of the most memorable experience I had in Albay.
I haven’t been to the seven continents! I’ll make sure I do it!
I’m a minimalist. I try to bring only the essential things. Sometimes, I only bring hand carry bags.
I can’t leave home without money of course. Recently, I got my phone broken in Korea. I wasn’t able to use it for a week but I survived going around by reading the maps!
I’m not a fan of books but I always watch Korean Dramas!
Google Maps is my best friend.
Make plans. Respect the culture. Have fun!
