Diego Coruña, at your service.
Incidentally, that’s not my real name. It’s a pen name that I first employed on my anime blog a few years ago, and which I’ve now pressed into service as my default online label.
Needless to say, I love getting out and about once in a while. I’ve been out of the country as a child, but the first overseas journey that really sparked my interest in seeing more of the world was a 2007 trip to Singapore. Since then, I’ve gone on at least one foreign adventure every year. You can learn more about this side of me here and here.
What’s my job, you ask? Let’s not talk about what I do for a living. As a matter of personal policy, the stress of the daily grind stays behind in the office every time I clock out. This blog is my happy place, after all – so let’s keep things happy. (~‾⌣‾)~
Now then, what else? I’m from the Philippines, I don’t like seafood, I’m a history buff, I’m a railfan (with a particular interest in Japanese trains), I’m an anime and manga enthusiast, I’m a sworn enemy of selfies, and … well, that’ll do for the moment. Moving on…
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?
Here and there, but not exactly around the world. I’ve settled into a comfortable habit of regularly visiting just two countries in particular (more on that below), so I neither expect nor desire to add any new countries to my been-there-done-that list anytime soon.
A long time ago, I resolved to visit at least one new country each year. I’ve since thrown that out and set a new resolution in its place: visit whatever country I feel like visiting, whether I’ve been there or not. On any given year, that usually means travelling to both Japan and Korea, two countries that I’ve fallen head over heels in love with and try to visit at least once or twice annually.
I wasn’t much of a travel blogger before 2013, but you’ll see bits and pieces of previous trips on my anime blog (more specifically under the Travelogues tab). The very first journey I wrote about from start to finish (in true travel-blogger fashion) was my 2013 trip to Japan, which you can find right here.
WHAT’S YOUR TRAVEL STYLE?
