Hey there, I’m Polly Amora, a corporate warrior by day, and a perpetual explorer by heart. I’m all about embracing life’s adventures, from conquering peaks to basking on sandy shores, wandering city streets, and savoring exotic flavors.

I’m a lifelong learner, and my curiosity knows no bounds. Music, the great outdoors, writing, free diving, and picking up new languages – that’s my jam. One thing I firmly stand by is that you don’t need to ditch your job to embrace wanderlust. It’s totally possible to juggle the 9-to-5 and globe-trotting – because, why settle for one when you can have the best of both worlds?

So, here’s to exploring, learning, and living life to the fullest!

Do you accept quest posting?

Unfortunately, I do not accept guest postings at this time.

What sources of income does your blog have?

I earn a bit of commission through collaborations, affiliate marketing and ads. Thank you very much for the supporting me through this! 

What do you consider to be most rewarding aspect of being a travel blogger?

One of the most rewarding aspects of being a travel blogger is having the opportunity to influence/encourage people to travel. Every time i get an email thanking me for writing about a place or telling me that my blog helped them plan their vacation, i do a little dance. The feeling is amazing!

How much time do you put into writing content?

I’d estimate 3 hours for brainstorming, drafting the entire article, and proofreading.

Is blogging your main source of income? How do I start a blog that makes money?

I wish! But, no, I run a business and have a couple side hustles (offline).


  1. Very good blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused .. Any recommendations? Bless you!

    1. Hello, Alphonso, and thank you for stopping by. My experience has taught me that I should have begun with a paid Wordpress plan from a different host. WP(dot)com is quite restrictive, and you won’t be able to fully utilize your site’s potential, such as customization, SEO tools, and ad installation. Also, it will seem like starting from scratch once you decide to transfer from WP(dot)com to other host.There are basic plans available for beginners, and if you see that the web traffic is moving well, you may upgrade to a higher plan. Best of luck!

  2. Everything is very open with a really clear description of the challenges. It was definitely informative. Your website is extremely helpful. Many thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you very much for the comment and for stopping by Pat!

  3. Ѕimply want to say your article is as amazing. The clarity in your poѕt is just spectacular and i can assume you’re an expeгt on this subject. Welⅼ witһ your permission let me to grab your ɌSS feed to keep up to ⅾate with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please keep up the rewarding work.

    1. Thank you Jenny, I appreciate you reading my posts!

  4. We absolutely love your blog and find many of your post’s to be exactly what I’m looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content for you personally? I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write with regards to here. Again, awesome weblog!

    1. Hi Jackey, thank you very much for your kind words and for stopping by. Guest posting is currently not open since I am in the process of updating the site; however, it may reopen after I have finished straightening things out.

  5. Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for inexperienced blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    1. Hi Redge, thank you very much for your visiting and for your kind words! My advice would prolly be to start blogging now. Find a niche that interests you, get a paid WordPress plan, and write about what interests you the most. Best of luck! ❤️
