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, just those travel mishaps I'll never ever forget.

Nevertheless, I can assure you 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.
