About The Travel Blogger
Hello there! I am Juls, a young, aspiring travel blogger from the Philippines and the founder of Traveledictorian. A portmanteau of travel and valedictorian, Traveledictorian is a travel blog that publishes thoughtful travel articles.
An Outgoing Kid
My upbringing in a laid-back, far-off town has taught me to value a modest lifestyle. I enjoy the outdoors, like many kids my age. However, I also find myself in trouble for being up late.
Outdoorsy to a Homebody
I stopped being interested in the outdoors and spent most of my time reading books. Hence, I graduated at the top of my class. I then came to the realization that life is about more than just academics.
Travel for Work and Leisure
The company I work for provides travel to the Philippines. For many people, perhaps, having free flights and hotel stays when traveling is the ideal job. I go to sights, try the local delicacies, socialize with people, and have fun at nighttime parties after work.
Feeling of Self-Reproach
I made the snap decision to leave my dream job of a lifetime, which led to situational sadness. The days of working for travel and living each day as if it were my last are long gone.
I travelled to several of Southeast Asia’s most well-known tourist destinations, including the mountains of Sagada. Hence, I eventually got well, put my broken dreams back together, and continued to follow my passion for travel and writing.
A Piece of Advice
When facing impediments, experiencing mental health problems, losing a loved one, or feeling anxious, do think about taking a trip. Traveling is, in fact, treatment for our recovery.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the entire world into a total lockdown period. Curfews and prohibitions on community mobilizations have been implemented in many countries, including the Philippines.
While the directive to stay at home is in effect, I had the idea to commence a travel blog where I would document my travels and experiences. Hence, Bangkok Travel Guide was the very first piece of writing I had ever published on my site, Traveledictorian.
Love for Arts
Besides creative writing, I am also inclined into photography, videography, and graphic design. Thus, I created visually pleasing content across various channels to share my creative side.
Realization of a Dream
Future Travel Plan
Along with this, I hope to travel and undertake humanitarian work. I am the co-founder of the nonprofit ‘Claus Gives Back,’ which offers help to homeless people.
Check out my Instagram as I document some of the world’s most beautiful places.
Your promising travel blogger,
J. Sac – Founder, Traveledictorian
