Welcome to The Curious Passport!

I’m Ligaya; raised in Kaua’i, schooled in Southern California by way of Virginia, I now call San Diego home.

New experiences, different perspectives, a good cup of coffee and contemplative conversation energize and inspire me.

I aspire to share travel stories that move through the multi-sensory lens of a life propelled (and ignited) by #wanderlust…and the philosophy that life just isn’t fun if it isn’t funny.

When I’m stateside, find me hunting down an horchata latte, at The Bar Method or surfing the party waves at Tourmaline park in Pacific Beach. Or at brunch.
