This is me.
Hey you! If you’ve found your way here, it means one (or all) of three things. One – you’re a friend/affiliate. Two – you love to travel. Three – you’re my parents (hi mom and dad). That last one’s kind of sad, haha. But either way, I’m glad you stopped by and I hope you stay awhile.
I’m Lanell, a 33-year old Bank Officer with a Masters in Applied Economics from De La Salle University Manila. I LOVE to travel. I am a self-proclaimed foodie. I love to read. I am a chaser of dreams and a lover of life. I am the cofounder of a small business, Kingkong Travel Ph.
I am a proud daughter, proud sister to 2 of the best siblings in the world, proud tita to Kingkong and Baby Kikay. I have the best boss on earth, and I have a small set of friends I cherish deeply.
Last but definitely not the least, I am a proud feminist. ♥
