If you’ve been a follower of this blog, you may have noticed that I haven’t updated the travel content in a while. Over the course of a year, a lot of things in my life had changed. From battling personal problems to moving to Alaska and getting a job that I actually like. I thought that I’m finally getting a break from all the struggles of 2019. Then came a worldwide pandemic that had turned lives upside down, including mine. I am one of the millions of people around the globe who had lost their jobs because of the social distancing and quarantine guidelines imposed by the government to flatten the curve. Just like you, I am more than happy to do my part, to stop the spread of this deadly virus. But that had also meant that my family and I had to make difficult decisions, one of which is to put on hold the life we are building in Alaska and come home to the Philippines to be with our daughter and family. We are on self-isolation as of writing, currently on Day 9. Our hope is to reunite our family in a week or two once we’re in the clear and when the Enhanced Community Quarantine is lifted.
So where does that leave KGB in Wanderland now that travel has been restricted all over the globe and the industry as a whole will probably take time to recover? I still have intentions of traveling by the way. But I now aim to be a more responsible and conscious traveler. With that said, I have decided that I won’t be updating this blog anymore. I am keeping all of my posts published for as long as I can. It may or may not be relevant anymore. That’s for you, the reader, to decide.
Not all goodbyes are sad. And in this case, it’s the start of something new.
Today, I have launched a new website called Easy Tasty Eats where I would be sharing recipes, homemaking tips and of course, a little bit of travel. Two years of blogging has taught me which topics readers find informative and useful. I intend to still talk about my favorite travel topics such as top activities in a city, tour reviews, and Airbnb or hotel recommendations. I will possibly transition those posts that I think will always be relevant to our new home. That is my goal.
My Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter are still active, but in time I may need to merge it with Easy Tasty Eats‘ accounts. I’ve never been a huge social media person, handling many accounts is just too big of a burden for me.
For now, let’s all do our part and #stayhome. I am optimistic that we will see a light at the end of this tunnel very soon. Let’s thank our brave Frontliners: doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers, grocery and food supply workers, and the many more hardworking people who put their lives on the line to make sure we are not only safe and healthy but also comfortable.
Be well and keep safe.
