hello there!

I’m Monica, a Pinay traveler and the storyteller behind The Boho Travels.

In 2012, I did a backpacking trip to visit indigenous communities in the Philippines. This made me fall in love with traveling. Since then, I’ve visited 34 of 82 Philippine provinces, and have been to 15 countries in Asia and Europe – and I’d love to explore!

My mission? I want to inspire you to travel and create beautiful memories through my well-researched travel guides, tips, and stories – so that when life gets tough, you’ll have a reminder that life is short, but you’ve lived it fully! Read more about my journey here.
