Gretchen’s unparalleled gift to weave emotions into her stories that jump out of the screen is both a source of envy and inspiration. I’ve found myself in a variety of states after engaging with her words—weeping, writing with renewed energy, and vowing to never call myself a writer again.

When I forget my sense of adventure and/or my love for writing, I head over to Filipina Explorer. The stories are crafted exquisitely and each of them are woven straight from the heart. I’m always left feeling inspired every time.

Life can really be tough at times and one blog I usually find myself looking forward to read especially when I feel down and weary is Filipina Explorer. Reading travels and stories of a mother and daughter successfully transforms my confusion to understanding and blossoms into hope, bringing me back to my dreams and goals in life. A blog site subconsciously answering questions why I even started doing what I do and why I need to continue. It’s not just any travel blog. It’s a real life journal of any child (regardless of age) and one you can surely relate, too.
