Hi, I’m Karen Roldan
I’m a travel and lifestyle blogger from Manila, Philippines, and have a full-time job as a Test Automation Engineer. I like minimalism, pastel colors, dogs, and all things teal, turquoise or aqua – basically all simple things. You may notice that I don’t have photos of myself that much, that’s because I’m camera-shy! 😛
Launched in 2016, Karenroldan.net is a travel and lifestyle blog where I document my life and interests, personal stories and places I’ve been to.
About the Blog
In 2015, I started traveling almost every other week. My friends would always ask me about my travels – where I went, how I found the place, how much are my expenses, how was my experience, and the list goes on.
That’s how I decided to start this blog.
One purpose of my blog is to have something that I could look back to – regardless if it is good or bad experience. Karenroldan.net is my safe space; I like writing what’s in my mind. No fake news here ( 😛 ) since I write about my first-hand experiences or I check my facts first before posting. As people always say, there are three sides in every story: my side, your side and the truth.
