About Us

Welcome sole sisters!

I'm Lois, co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of this travel blog. I was born and raised in the Philippines. I started this website with a former colleague who shared a mutual passion for travel and adventure.

Five months later, we were able to start this travel blog, create an itinerary, tell our parentsquit our jobs and save up for our escape fund. A year after the initial planning stage, we went on a journey across India and SE Asia and have gone through 9 countries for 6 months with only around 2,500 USD (100,000 PHP) budget. I've written about the places I've visited, my top recommendations and my detailed itinerary on our ebook "Where Should I Go in Southeast Asia?"

Lois of We Are Sole Sisters

Since then, I have traveled extensively and have lived in Asia, the United States, and Europe. When I'm not traveling, I'm often surfing, learning languages or organizing workshops and retreats focused on Passion, Freedom and Empowerment. I'm currently based in Europe with my husband and daughter.

meet the sisterhood

Sole Sister Adi is an artist, wanderer and yogini at heart. She escaped the corporate world in Manila to live a simple life in a tiny surf island next to Bali. She backpacked Southeast Asia before taking the big leap to Central America. Colorful maps and mandalas are her escape from social media. She is currently falling in love and volunteering her way through Latin America, currently along the edges of Costa Rica. Follow her daily adventures on Love the Search.

Julienne of Morena Travels

Sole Sister Julienne of Morena Travels is a 20-something Manila girl who's lived in Hong Kong for four years as an editor of a tourism magazine. She loves getting lost in nature, trying new things, intelligent conversation, good food, and fitness. Julienne, although an avid traveller, is not your stereotypical no-frills backpacker. She is a city girl whose heart feels freest amongst mountains and seas, but balances this spirit with a stubborn ambition driving her towards meaningful pursuits harmonising not just fun but also financial independence, and professional/personal growth. Currently based between Hong Kong and Manila, Julienne is at a crossroads of her life.

Sarah of Coffeewithasliceoflife6

Sole Sister Sarah of Coffee with A Slice of Life is a self proclaimed global gypsy, and scuba obsessed travel blogger who has been travelling the globe for the last 4 years, one cup of coffee a time. She is currently based in Hong Kong although she is just in love with the open road, and writing about it, and will do almost anything to keep living her dream...

Emma of ActiveTrvlr

Sole Sister Emma of The Active Travlr is an adventure traveller from Canada, backpacking around the world. With the love for nature, an obsession for rock climbing, and a passion for travelling, she packed her bags and decided to explore the world, with no return date. The travel bug bit, and her year-long travel plan fell through. Two years later, she’s still on the road for the unknown, to a destination off the beaten path. She also just recently raised 11,754 CAD to help rebuild remote villages affected by the quake in Nepal through her independent project The Travelling Movement. She is currently in Nepal.
