HI! I’M SHERLYN AND WELCOME TO MY TRAVEL BLOG!
I am an Assistant Professor of International Relations and Southeast Asian/ASEAN Studies from Manila, Philippines.
During my free time, I write, I travel, I eat, and I’m (always!) hungry for more.
Most of the time, you will find me inside the University lecture halls and doing research at the library. Otherwise, you might find me sitting in a coffee shop, writing travel articles, editing photos from my past trips, or interviewing some people about all things travel. In between, I’m traveling somewhere.
I’m not gonna lie, but traveling and working anywhere and anytime I want sounds like a beautiful idea. But for now, I’m okay with squeezing mini-vacations within business trips and making the most out of all holidays and school breaks throughout the year. In which case, I go somewhere new to learn about history, art and culture, food, and existing human conditions. And oh, I have a thing with hotel architecture and interior design in particular!
As an academic who always craves for knowledge, data, and information, things like travel writing, photography, and research are naturally close to my heart. I looooove Instagram and curating travel photos, but I wish people will never forget that cosmopolitanism and cultural awareness are more dope than maintaining a perfect travel Instagram feed.
On this blog, I’m about to tell you that in the grand scheme of things, traveling may not be beautiful 100% of the time, but it’s always just a matter of perspective (just like other things in this world).
