Roxanne in Tokyo, Japan

Welcome to I Travel Rocks Rox!

Hi! I’m Roxanne M. Tamayo

You can call me Rox. I created this travel blog in March 2013 as a travel repository. Previously, I stated I wasn’t born to be a traveler but wanted to be one and now I am already doing it. From owning a small digital camera to a DSLR camera, my wanderlust is growing to go to different destinations and discover places when I still have the energy to do so. I am not a good story teller and also not a good writer but I am hoping that I can be able to share my experiences and helpful tips here.

Note: Most of the photos here are mine unless stated like I grabbed from friends or relatives. 🙂

What Am I Doing in Life?

I am a freelance online worker since October 2009. I work as a Virtual Assistant doing administrative work such as data entry, web research, email management, social media management, writing contents and blogging, doing basic SEO stuff, graphic design, editing and enhancing photos. I started traveling out of Cebu with my small netbook in November 2012 which was the first destination and first airplane ride experience going to Manila with friends. It took me three years before I get addicted to travel because all I did before was working hard my @$$ off and saving money for the future.

Buying a laptop, a smartphone and a DSLR camera helped me to gear up to be a digital nomad which I slowly invested when year 2013 started. Of course, I love to learn photography and somehow it helped me to earn money on the side as a wedding photographer.

As a digital nomad, I am enjoying the life of traveling without the worry of taking a vacation leave for few days instead I can go whenever I want to if money permits. 😛

      • Hello!
        Thank you for following my blog. I know how many interesting blogs are out there and feel honored that you picked mine to follow. I hope my stories entertain and inform and my photos bring you joy and wonderment.
        I travel mostly local but try to always find interesting places. I have lived in several different places and dig through my archives of photos to bring glimpses into places I have been. Sometimes I post a recipe because food tells a lot about culture.
        I am not a professional photographer, so my photos are sometimes a little fuzzy and there are telephone poles and wires and other things along with what I was photographing. The older photos are 35mm, the newer are point and shoot digital and a few are Samsung Smartphone.
        I am new to blogging so if you have any advice or critique please drop me a comment.
        Thank you again for following and to quote Mark Twain: “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” – Mark Twain

        • Hi Iris,

          I have nothing to critique it’s because I am not a professional blogger nor pro photographer although I have enjoyed blogging for more than 4 years and just started the love of photography last May 2013. 😀

          I just started this travel blog since last year so I am kind of new with this niche. I just want to travel and share helpful information too. 🙂

  • You are so interesting! I do not believe I’ve truly read through something like this before. So wonderful to discover someone with genuine thoughts on this subject. Seriously.. thanks for starting this up. This site is something that is required on the web, someone with a bit of originality!
