About Me


I’m Katherine, a Filipina currently living in the Philippines.

I’m a 20-ish writer/copy editor and software engineer. I have a full-time job, so I make the most of my schedule — I usually travel on weekends, long holidays and whenever I can file a vacation!

As a traveler, I like off-the-beaten places. I prefer the laid-back atmosphere of beaches and lagoons.

I started Tara Lets Anywhere with my boyfriend Hali Navarro in December 2015 as our travel journal. To my non-Filipino readers, “tara lets” is actually a Filipino slang for “let’s go,” so this blog is about traveling wherever we want to. Since then, this blog had been listed a few times in Top Couple Travel Blogs around the world.

So far, Id been quite extensively about the Philippines, as well as other countries in Asia.

So what can you expect to see in this blog?

Narratives and budget guides for backpackers like me. I also talk about our experiences in volunteering, as well as informative content on sustainable & ethical tourism. Every now and then, I feature selected accommodations that I like. Oh, and recently I’d decided to dabble in doing food reviews as well. Occasionally, you will also read articles about #life and other #random categories.

Nice knowing you and hope to see you around!

P.S. Keep in touch!

You can see a few travel videos in Vimeo here.

I also have various social media accounts, I’m most active in Facebook and Instagram.

  2. Stumbled upon your blog and smiled. My husband’s name is holly. We usually spell it hali cause people often times mispronounce his name. I am kat by the way. 🙂 nice blog!

    1. Hey, thanks! Hali’s name is Halley but he spells it as Hali because people mispronounce it as well. And people I correspond with always call me Tara! Haha. That’s why I had to put that explanation above about tara lets being a Filipino phrase.
