Originally Hails From:

The Philippines

From an archipelago (The Philippines), Donna migrated to the desert (Las Vegas), and has now relocated to another archipelago (The Bahamas). Although she’s familiar with the idiosyncrasies of island living, she still gets a giggle every now and then from the peculiarities of her new chapter on Paradise Island with her husband.

A self-proclaimed curious adventurer, Donna has been blogging on and off since 2008.  Writing is her true passion and nothing motivates her more than sharing discoveries and fun experiences through her story-telling skills. You can read more of her tales on her blog, Curious Adventurer
