Hey! Thanks for the interest. So I don’t actually know how you got here and why. But I do hope you find what you are looking for. When you do, I will be very happy if you drop me a comment of hello. 🙂
The Wanderfull Life
I have been blogging for a while now. My first blog was in 2003. This blog only started in 2013 when I knew I’d be traveling abroad and the want to share kind of grow. I have always love writing and documenting what I’m up to but solely for my own benefit. But in 2013, when I started this blog, I wanted it to help and inspire people to do exciting things like travel and trek. Just this year, I thought of adding in some of the other activities like playing board games, fitness pursuits like Zumba and Muay Thai, volunteering and a whole lot more activities that makes LIFE more exciting.
Blogging and Me
So technically I’ve been blabbering in the web for around 13 years now. Wew! Everything that you will read here is written by me unless I state otherwise. I don’t earn from this blog. It is quite exciting to know people who are earning from blogging but unfortunately, I find it too tedious. It needs commitment and hard work, I unfortunately don’t have the patience for it. Even joining blogging communities is too much for me. Anddd…learning how to blog effectively is not my game as well. I write whatever I want to write so pardon me if you find some grammatical error. Haha! You can however point that out to me though. Promise, I won’t cry.
Kring in a Nut Shell
So sometimes I really find it hard to introduce myself since I almost want people to know ‘everything’ about me at once. Haha! But most of my friends will not believe me if I say I’m having a hard time talking since I’m always bubbly. They call me an extrovert but I start to believe I am more of an ambivert. I love people. Kindness, bravery and team work makes me cry. If you wanna know more of my inner wiring, I have a thought blog here.
I work as a software engineer and help manage our little rental business on the sides with my husband, Mark. We call each other Migo & Miga. We got married in 2015 at a whimsy little celebration of which we DIY-ed everything. He’s the wind beneath my wings. Without him, I wouldn’t have known how amazing it is to travel. Like many Filipinos, my salary for the first years at work were for the family. I rarely had anything left for myself. Known to be thrifty yet he goes gaga over me to the point of paying all my early trips. We started trekking and board gaming as a couple in 2011 after 3 years of being in a roller coaster relationship. I can be very jealous and volatile when it comes to love life. But Migo made me better and made me the best version of myself. 🙂 Need more cheesiness, here’s a blog about Migo&Miga.
I’m also a frustrated writer or novelist, you can read some of that here. Aside from that I’m actually trying to learn how to write in a sort-of-reporter writing at a blog I created at work on my first year of being an Ambassador in our company.
So in a nut shell? Hmmm! I am a lot of things in one and easily get excited in almost everything. At my worst, I am self-righteous. At my best, I seek to empower people to explore and live the life they want regardless of the societal norms. Everything is just possible.
“Live. Believe. EMPOWER.” is my guiding principle.

The Blogger – Kring is a girl whose high heeled fashion would make you question the validity of her stories in the mountains. She’s a software engineer by profession, a just converted financial literacy advocate, a host of their rental business, a self-proclaimed narcissist but with a big heart that easily aches for those in need. Her hobby includes writing, blogging, and scrap/photo booking, traveling, trekking and volunteering. She is easily bored thus the need to have more activities. This is where board gaming and jewelry making comes in. She loves (now married to) an introvert – July who understands her extrovert personality very well.
This is her stories of the places she has been, the mountains she has climbed and the people she’s been with. 😀 But could be anything under “her” sun as well.
The Wanderfull Life is all about adventures…trips and climbs ON A BUDGET. It is about traveling and conquering mountains on the weekend and payday basis. It is written by a newbie in both travel and mountaineering with an aim to spread the word that travel need not be EXPENSIVE and mountaineering need not BE FEARED. Nothing is impossible when we have the WILL AND PASSION to fulfill what we WANT.
The Blogger’s View
“From glamour to adventure…”
Traveling and mountaineering is (believed to be) an expensive and dangerous excursion. This blog is here to prove that it is SLIGHTLY…not. We can all be travelers and mountaineers in our own time…pace and budget. It is here to remind us that anyone can travel and climb.
TRAVEL & WANDERLUST
I used to hate the thought of wasting money on such a useless activity. Hearing travel stories are not that appealing.
So what if they’ve been to places?! Does that make them a better person compared to me who was able to send my siblings to school?!
So what if they were able to do white water rafting? I’m sure I’ve done something that they haven’t experience. Perhaps, even more adrenaline pumping and for FREE.
And more “So whats…”
Then an opportunity came…TRAVEL FOR FREE. I was like…should I go?! I’ve read that going to places are addictive – that’s what spark my interest. If there’s anything I love first before this wanderlust…it is a damn good CHALLENGE. I want to prove them wrong.
To whoever said “Travel is addictive”, you wait and see…I’ll prove you wrong!
Oh…well, you know I failed. Because if I didn’t, I wouldn’t be writing stories about the places I’ve been. 😉
MOUNTAINEERING & TREKKING
This came at about 3 years since I fell in love with travel. Compared to travel, mountaineering was an acquaintance. Travel and I were friends because I hailed from a mountainous place. I just didn’t take the time to focus on it. I was whisked into many things…one of that is glamour. Learn to live with glamour’s glamour. Wore high heels, dresses and make-ups. The mountainous girl was forgotten.
And so when an opportunity came to reunite with the former self, I was scared. Should I go? Can I really do it? What if it’s so tiring? And…ugh…I will look horrible in those attires.
I did GO.
Not because I have answered all my doubts but because I wanna give mountaineering a chance too…like travel. Everything deserves their own chances. And if I didn’t give travel and mountaineering their chances, I wonder if my life would be this WONDERFUL…and of course…WANDERFUL.
So why don’t you give travel and mountaineering a chance too?! Who knows you’ll also fall in love with them like I do. And when you do…give me a ring.
The more, the merrier…some day, I hope to see you in one of those places I planned to go…and in those mountains I planned to climb.
Let’s travel and climb together. 🙂
Cheering on YOU.
