Prepare to see this everyday as soon as you open your eyes.1 palawan_beach_ciaofelicia-2

I woke up like this.2_island_beach_hut_palawan_ciaofelicia-2

As soon as you put your toes in the sand, there is coffee, tea, and fresh fruit waiting for you. 3_tao_breakfast_island_ciaofelicia-2Always with a side of the best smiles.4_fresh_coconut_tao_ciaofelicia

Sometimes we would do yoga and meditation on the beach,5_beach_yoga_philippines_ciaofelicia

and sometimes we would go kayaking with our favorite sea dog.6_kayak_philippines

But we would always be back on the boat and excited to see which private islands we were stopping at that day!7_tao_boat_ciaofelicia

Lunch was always fresh caught seafood served by the best crew ever.10_tao_expeditions_ciaofelicia

Rule #1: always get seconds.11_tao_food_ciaofelicia

Hi! I’m Felicia. I am a 23 year old traveler originally from Huntington Beach, CA and currently living in Auckland, New Zealand. I graduated from California State University, Fullerton in May 2016. After graduation, I didn't have a "dream career" in mind, so I followed my heart and have been finding ways to make money as I travel the world ever since! I plan to travel and learn more about the world than I ever did in school. Traveling is a passion of mine. I love seeing the beauty of our world through architecture, nature, and people. I love connecting with people without being able to speak the same language. I love being in an unfamiliar place alone and stepping outside of my comfort zone. But I don’t know what I want to do yet. I plan to travel the world for as long as possible instead of "adulting." Until I figure it out, will you go on this adventure with me?
