Author - Lara The Explorer

My name is Lara and I am a young explorer of the world.

I am a cheerful, creative, positive, independent, energetic, and happy mixed girl, half Italian and half Filipino. From my parents, I got the wanderlust gene.
Obviously, I cannot write yet, so my beloved parents will take over this blogging until I am able to continue it myself.

This travel blog is my travel diary. So, as I grow older, I will be able to look back at all the places I have been. I will collect all these small moments of my travels in this blog and save them for my lifetime.
