Hello, travelers! My name is Polly Amora, the señorita behind GoldenIslandSenorita.Net. Welcome to the blog!
I’m based in the vibrant city of Manila, Philippines, where I wear many hats and enjoy every moment of it. Let me give you a glimpse into my world.
First and foremost, I’m a business manager, hustling in the bustling city. But that’s just one facet of what I do.
I also have a soft spot for healthcare, and I work as a private duty nurse from time to time. It’s incredibly rewarding to lend a helping hand when needed.
Now, let’s talk music! Teaching drums and piano to budding musicians is a real passion of mine. Seeing my students light up with the joy of music is simply priceless.
And then there’s languages. I absolutely adore helping others explore new languages, from the basics to deeper linguistic adventures.
But here’s where my heart truly soars—travel! I’m a certified travel addict with an insatiable curiosity for exploring new places. My love for history and knack for research come in handy as I uncover the rich stories and hidden gems of each destination.
Now, let’s talk about my quirky obsession—I’m a bit of an organization freak! Whether it’s decluttering my space or creating well-structured plans, I thrive on bringing order to chaos.
Last but certainly not least, I’m a storyteller at heart. Writing about my adventures and sharing my experiences with others is something I cherish. It’s my way of inviting you to join me on incredible journeys through my words.
One thing I firmly believe in is that you don’t have to give up your job to travel. You can have the best of both worlds! Work can be fulfilling, and so can exploring new horizons. It’s all about finding that perfect balance.
So, that’s me in a nutshell — a friendly mix of business, caregiving, music, languages, travel, organization, and storytelling. Thanks for taking a peek into my world!
