Mt. Bromo, East Java, Indonesia

Hello there!

My name is Johanna Frejoles. Most people call me Hanna, Ning, or Miss Bean. I am currently based in Cebu, Philippines.

I speak English, Cebuano, Tagalog, and a little bit of Bikol. I used to play the piano until I realized that my real passion lies in writing and exploring new places.

A few years ago, I realized that I am not cut out for the 9-5 life so I did my best to find something that will allow me to fulfill my dream of seeing the world while still earning a living. And that is why I decided to become a digital nomad. The freedom to be able to work anywhere – at my own pace and time – is something that I’ve always wanted to do and finally, I am now doing it.

I don’t really have plans to visit all the provinces in the Philippines or visit as many countries in the world. I just go whenever my mind starts spewing random thoughts of places that interest me. I do my best to travel with a purpose and set prior intentions because I want it to be something that gives real value to my life. Otherwise, do I really have to travel at all?

In this blog, you will find travel narratives just about anything. On some days, you will find me writing about my extreme adventures. Sometimes, I just want to talk about that one time I had diarrhea.

Nevertheless, I can assure that what you find here are genuine travel stories coming from my heart.

Why Bean in Transit?

My last name is a Spanish word for ‘beans’. Hence, the name ‘Miss Bean’. In life, whether we travel or not, we are always in transit.
