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!

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!

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