Wondering Wanderer

Hi! My name is Edwin Juen Jr. and welcome to our travel blog!

Unlike most travel bloggers, I never experienced traveling solo in my entire life. I’m sure it’s a different kind of fun but it’s not for me since I don’t feel like going out on a quest without my partner in crime.

This travel blog is simply a collection of wonderful places in the Philippines and beyond where my wife and I had priceless moments. Since I feel that every place we explore gives us colorful memories that helps strengthen our relationship, I was inspired to start our own travel blog where we can better reminisce our adventures together.

When the time comes where we don’t have the strength to travel anymore, we can just visit this blog to relive every exciting moments all over again. We even count the bad moments as a fun experience since we shared it together. We just laugh off things like bad service, delays and mistakes. I’m glad that my wife was very happy with my dedication of this blog to her birthday.

This travel blog will serve as a journal of our adventures which are part of our love story. We honor God for the wonderful family He gave us and for the privilege to explore the wonders of His creation.

  1. Hi Edwin

    I hope you’re well. I’m sorry to bother you but I’ve got a big favour to ask! I’m a freelance travel journalist and I’m currently working on a piece for the UK’s Metro newspaper. It’s about geological attractions and my editor wants me to include quote from well-traveled travel bloggers, and as I love your blog I was hoping to include a quote from your website, as below, in the bit I’m including about the Chocolate Hills. Obviously I will link to your website and the piece will appear online as well as in print. I’ll send on the PDF when it gets printed.

    Thank you very much,

    ‘To enjoy a great view of the Chocolate Hills, you need to climb one of them,’ points out travel blogger Edwin Juen Jr, founder of wonderingwanderer.com. ‘One of the hills has been converted to a viewing deck. It’s a long way up as you need to climb 213 concrete steps, but once you get up there, it’s worth every calorie.’

    • Hi Tamara,

      I’m doing well, how about you? You’re actually the one who’s doing us a big favor because getting our site linked in your UK newspaper article helps promote it so please, feel free to do so. This will help promote the beauty of our country as well.

      We feel very privileged that you picked our site. If you need a quote from our other posts as well please let us know. We’ll be glad to share it with you. We’ll look forward to that PDF that you’ll be sending me.

      Many thanks,

    Will be in Bohol this Saturday with 3 of my friends and I’d like to know where exactly did you stay in Panglao? “Alona” seems to be attached to all the beaches in Tawala. I am particular as to where you saw the seafood catch on this blog entry.

    Appreciate the help.


    • Hi Anne,

      We stayed in Alona Tropical Beach resort. We saw the seafood catch during our stroll in the long stretch of the Alona beach area. Please check out my blog entry with the title 7 Reasons Why Alona Tropical Beach Resort for more information about the resort :)

    Hi Edwin,
    Many regards from Belgium, Europe. I just saw your wonderful video about Salagdo Ong Beach on Siquijor Island. My wife is a Siquijodnon, and we have been at the beach many, many times ; it’s really a small peace of paradise on earth. I also liked the music you used in the video ; may I ask who’s the composer of it, and maybe the title ??

    • Hi Ronny,

      It’s great to know you really had a great time here in the Philippines. Siquijor is definitely a paradise I look forward to come back later. The title of the music is “Again” by Secrets in Stereo.

    Hi EJ,
    Thanks for your reply ; I’ve found some more music of Secrets in Stereo on the internet, but I don’t think it’s available on CD. I will return to Siquijor next May, pohon. Are you living in the Philippines, or abroad ??
    All the best, and a Merry Christmas,

    • HI Ronny,

      Actually the Secrets in Stereo music that I used in my video is just a free audio background music from Youtube whenever anyone uploads any videos which could be a reason why it’s for digital download only. I’ve been living here in Metro Manila since birth. :)

      Merry Christmas too and have a safe trip this coming May!
