My name is Aileen. At 21, I quit my corporate job in the Philippines to travel the world. Today, I am a digital nomad (entrepreneur & travel writer) living a sustainable travel lifestyle. Apart from exploring the globe and working on my business, I am also handing this travel blog in my free time. In this website, I aim to… (iAmAileen)

  • Show that a life of travel is NOT only for the rich, and that it is absolutely possible to explore the globe in a sustainable manner — no matter if you are a 3rd world national with only a 3rd world passport like me
  • Share the joy of traveling and the joy of doing what I love to do
  • Send the message that following one’s passion is always the best choice

How do I plan to achieve and accomplish these goals?

  • By inspiring people through my life story and travel adventures
  • By helping others through my blog articles that will revolve around travel hacks, resources, tips, and more

FACT: Given my big life change in 2013 (when I quit my job to travel the world), and after a lot of successful life milestones, I realized that I wanted to share my travel stories to the world as I also try to help others in achieving their traveling dreams. Therefore just last September 5, 2014, I launched as a travel blog.

With this establishment of a clear vision for ‘iAmAileen’, I have truly come to love travel blogging! Besides, in such a short span of time after this blog was started, my writings and stories were already being recognized worldwide. As a result, I have since been featured in big websites like National Geographic, Lonely Planet, Cosmopolitan and more! (To see a list of my media and press exposures, go to this page).

If you want to learn more about how I started this travel lifestyle, you can read about it on my ‘5 Steps to Start a Life of Travel‘ article. Otherwise, you can check the following sections for the most popular sections on this blog:

  1. Hi, Aileen. . . I am starting a new blog with my own domain name. I used to have a blog in blogspot. Some of the posts there are special to me and I want to keep it in my new blog. What do you recommend? Should I or should I not? And how did you do the redirecting thing from your old blog to the new one? Thanks.

    1. If you really want to become serious about blogging, I suggest that you convert to now :) If you need help in starting up your blog, read my post here: And then there’s a tutorial here that discusses in detail how you can migrate from Blogger to WordPress: I hope it helps!
