Hi there! Welcome to the About Escapes and Diaries Page. Get to know me!
I’m Catherine, I’m a Filipina and have been living in Munich, Germany since 2019. I love writing about my travels, life in Germany, a guide to Germany, lifestyle, and any other things that interest me. I lived in Bangkok and Hanoi in my 20s and moved to Germany in 2019. I am a teacher at an International school and a music teacher at Gymboree. When I am not at work, I explore my city or stay cozy at home, and cook Asian foods like Korean vegetable pancakes and samgyupsal, aka Korean bbq.
WHY ESCAPES AND DIARIES
I developed my love of writing diaries when I was a kid. Since then, I have been hooked on writing my thoughts down. As years went by, my writing purpose has grown deeper, from scribbling mere thoughts to sharing stories about travel, love, relationships, and life in general.
MY TRAVEL HISTORY
I started traveling a few years back; by then, I was only discovering places in the nearby towns and provinces of my own country, The Philippines. And then I completely fell in love with the idea of traveling and how it changes and shapes me. Moreover, I’ve been to several places in Asia, Africa, and Europe, and I don’t plan to stop. I am married now to my German husband Chris; we’re based in Munich, Germany, and since we’ve met, we’ve explored new places together, and we enjoy doing it. Traveling alone is something I rarely do these days, but with my husband, it is more exciting and fun! Although my husband is not a travel blogger like me, I’m the one writing about our journey and adventure for most of our travels. He takes incredible photos tho, so he’s got all the credit for that!
My other camping and life abroad focus blog

Lastly, my dream destinations are Madagascar, Mongolia, and Hawaii. One day soon, they’ll be our next destination. Of course, I’ll let you all know once it already happened!
Anyhoo, I hope you enjoy reading my articles, and again, welcome to Escapes and Diaries!
