INTRODUCING TRAVEL BLOGGER | THE WANDERING JUAN

I would like to imagine a perfect life. I wanted to quit my corporate job and travel around the globe. Mind you that’s a dreamy reflection, however lets not forget about the normal hurdles that needs to be conquered. Time and Money. “So many things to do yet we only have a little time” Annoying isn’t it? I have so many plans and interests to keep me going and that I need considerable amount of time to do what I needed to do.

So where will I go? What shall I do?

Everyday my bucket list grows which in fact I added a couple of new places to explore, food to taste and so much of good memories to build.

I hate my current job. I extremely feel bored and unproductive. Yeah I make mistakes that I think would solve my problems but I figured it won’t solve it because I am running away from the reality. There are really times when life just sucks big time.

With this post, I am introducing Joshua Berida, who is a talented creative travel writer of The Wandering Juan and who will be sharing his insight about his adventures in the country and in foreign land. Please read on to find out more about him. Thank you Joshua!

THE WANDERING JUAN

WHAT KIND OF TRAVELER

I’m not particular about titles and stereotypes because sometimes I’d book a tour through an agency or hotel or just randomly wander to a place, I wouldn’t mind spending extra for a tour, hotel or food but there are also times when I would scrimp on spending. In short I’m a hybrid traveler.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT TRAVEL PEOPLE LOVE?

For me its the experience and people you meet. Travel is probably the only kind of education you get where there is no actual classroom and everyone you meet is a teacher. You get to learn a new culture, find similarities and differences about the country or even province you visit. It also opens your eyes to how uneven/unfair and how good the world is (it’s a wonderful kind of contradiction) its a cathartic experience that can either lead to action or inaction.
