Hello! Welcome to The Fickle Feet!
The Fickle Feet is a place where I share my experiences about my life. How I’m trying to survive my adulting phase while doing the things I love especially TRAVELING.
I created this blog to share my own personal reflections and understanding about the little and big things that I encounter in this crazy big world. I travel to know more, to understand deeper, and to have enough knowledge to assess my actions toward others and to myself. I always say that “Knowledge can lead to better actions!”. I’m hoping that this blog can make my voice and also others’ be heard.
Also, I want to share with you how a small town girl with big dreams is trying to figure out her place in this world. I’ve been doing a lot of things, trying different stuff, and learning new skills. It was a bit frustrating for me not having my own cup of tea. But the more I know myself, I realized that it is okay to be a bit of everything and I learn to love that part of me. I do not need to be one thing if I can be a lot of things, right? I’m pretty sure, I’m not the only one who feels this way and I tell you, you’re not alone.
You might worry that this is just a blabber space (actually it is created to be one) but, I will share to you my tips, guides, itinerary and how-tos in each destination I embarked. Just in case I will fail to give you the latter, let just share our own unique story. Okay?
Who is behind this?
Glad you asked!
Hello! I’m Ron Politud, born and raised in Tandag City, Philippines.
I am a storyteller, who talks really fast and really loud.
I am a freediver, who grew up facing the Pacific Ocean that brings strong big waves, and who loves the ocean the same way when it gets calm.
I am curious, who likes to experience, try, and do things that scare me; and because of that, I think I am a brave woman who can do anything I want.
So what’s my story?
Since I was a little girl, my family always goes on a road trip during summer. We explore Mindanao, one summer at a time, or in every chance we get. My parents were my best example that traveling doesn’t have to be expensive. I also get my ‘spontaneousity’ from them.
And then college comes in. At the age of 16, I moved and studied in the queen city of the south, Cebu City. Living in a new city was such an overwhelming and scary decision. However, this experience made me more independent and socially active. I learned different ways to travel. With groups, pair and alone. Exploring the city, then the nearby towns, and so on. This is an ongoing adventure!
And oh! I just want to share with you that I have a love-hate relationship with my curiosity, the main reason why I do crazy stuff that results in good, sometimes bad outcomes.
