About Aleah Taboclaon
Hi! I’m Aleah, professional writer, editor, and certified digital nomad. Aside from traveling, I love running (finished my first marathon, training for the next), diving (PADI Open Water), caving, and snorkeling. Despite my love for travel, I also enjoy staying indoors, as long as there’s an internet connection!
If there’s one thing that can describe me, it would be “adventurer,” or perhaps “explorer.” My earliest memories were of traveling and being in a bus with my mother and brother when I was 3 years old and it has stuck with me since. I was 11 when I first traveled solo, and although that may seem scary to others, I could only remember feeling exhilarated at that time for being independent so young, and for the possibility of having an adventure, whatever that meant for me then. ^_^
Through the years, my yearning for seeing and experiencing new places has only grown stronger. The world is so big and so beautiful, and I have only seen, appreciated, and experienced a very small part of it.
I have oftentimes traveled alone, both by necessity and desire. I like traveling solo for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the opportunity to push myself and see how far I can go relying only on myself. If you haven’t gone solo yet, why not try it out? You will be pleasantly surprised at what you can discover about yourself when you’re on the road alone.
If you would like to ask me something, you can use the Contact Me form. I promise to get back to you soonest. That is, if I’m not on the road 😀 Safe travels!
