Travel Bug Series 4 – Laurie Anne Legaspi

The first time I met her I couldn’t tell her apart from her sister, who I mistook for her twin. As I got to know her, I realized that the two are as different as night and day. Her sister is timid and soft-spoken while Laurie Anne Legaspi is more sociable and has that rebellious and adventurous streak. And this October, she is our Travel Bug feature. Read on to know more about her and her travel adventures.

First, tell us some things about you. Who are you?

My name is Laurie Anne, and I am an ambivert. I’m an online English teacher by day and a fashion-loving, coffee shop regular by night.

Why do you travel?

I travel to experience, discover, and learn new things about me and the places I visit.

When did you discover the joys of traveling?

I discovered the joys of traveling when I went to my first out of town trip with my high school barkada in Boracay.

Out of all places you’ve been to, which one is most memorable and why?

The most memorable would have to be Caramoan. It was a last minute decision to join my friends. When we got to the port, we were surprised when the porters started to carry us going to the boat. It was too easy for the kuya porter to carry me since I am petite. But with my other friend, who is on the heavy side, two kuyas were needed to carry her. Me and two other friends can’t help but giggle because our other friend was being hysterical and all.

How do you prepare for a trip?

I prepare for a trip by doing some research online and by asking friends who have been to that place.

What are your travel must-haves?

My must-haves are: sunscreen, mosquito repellent, lip balm, and emergency medicines (for allergies, stomach ache, headache, etc.)

What is the best thing that you learned about traveling?

The best thing I’ve learned about/when traveling is that at some point something will not go according to your plan. Learn to adjust and enjoy the moment.

Do you have flying anxiety?

I cannot call it anxiety, but I like to distract myself when the plane is about to take off or land.

I would have to say the Caramoan experience. Never been carried like a royalty from the shore to the boat ever. [Read: The Islands of Caramoan]

Do you travel solo?

I don’t, but I would love to do so.
