Hi and welcome everyone!
Let’s do the short version of who I am! I’m Joa which is short for Joannay, born and raised in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, living in PARADISE – Punta Cana – since 2013.
I have a degree in hotel management, and also in business administration. Looove to TRAVEL, I’m very passionated about it! I’m a travel deals chaser! love to cook, I like forensic and criminal science investigation shows, not because of the “events” but because of the attention to details, Sex and the City (yes…way different type of shows) and hang out with my family and friends.
Blog by Joa is a travel, lifestyle, travelista, tips and food-drinks access blog. What’s different? Well I’ve been traveling since 2010 everywhere I can on my work vacations days or long weekends. NO…I’m not rich! Jajaja actually I have a “real job” and bills, but in the last 7 years I’ve learned from others and my own experiences how to travel in a budget!
Family, friends, coworkers are always asking me for good deals for their vacations, so my goal is to share how I do it, share amazing tips that I implement when I travel, share favorites parts of my trips (other people experiences can be very helpful), fun tips of what to do, and of course food recommendations, I’m a FOODIE!
Finally, I made the decision of starting the blog after spending the last months learning about Websites, SEO and marketing analytics. To my surprise it was very easy, there are tons of videos on Youtube and tips that you can use. I just recommend that if you want to start one, be consistent and go all the way. Choose a catchy domain and good Web Hosting. In my case I’m using Banahosting, which I 100% recommend, they have an amazing support team (I tried 2 others before) and tons of demos. I’ll leave the link below for you to check more info.
I hope you find in this blog tips and information to have a wonderful travel experience!
“I work. I travel. I become. I share”
