About the Blog

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to read my blog!

In November 2011 I got rid of all my belongings, quit my job, said goodbye to my friends and family and moved across the ocean to Guam. When I made the decision to move to Guam, I did a lot of research about the island. I didn’t find ANY good sources that could tell me what to expect. So, when I arrived, I decided to start my own blog to document my adventures, keep my family and friends updated on my life and share Guam’s beauty with the world. Hopefully I will inspire some of you to rid yourself of whatever is holding you back from doing what you really want to do with your life!.





  1. Hi! I just followed your blog ^____^ I did the same thing…I quit my dream job in the Philippines and moved in to Guam with my husband! Never been so happy! Thank you for your blog! I’m just new here…so there’s a lot more to explore.

      1. Antonia,
        I am replying to you post below as I am a native of the island. The only correction I would make to your post is that if are a U.S. citizen coming from the States you do not need a passport to move, live, or establish roots there. I am living out here in California because of work and health care for my kids. I do miss home a lot. Thank you for your blog.
        “People born in Guam are U.S. citizens/American. But if you mean people who lived in The States and moved to Guam, there are a lot of us! Come join the fun 🙂 If you are a U.S. citizen all you need is a passport to move here (and money and all that other stuff).”

      2. Thanks so much for reading my blog, I appreciate it. You do need a passport when traveling to Guam or to the States, even though it is considered a domestic flight.

        Have a great day!!

  2. Thank you! I am moving to Guam in a few months and I have no idea what to expect. I’ve been quite nervous about it actually, but after reading most of your blog posts, I’m now super excited! Are you working there? What is the economy like?

    1. Thank you for reading! I’m so glad that you are now excited about your move. I was scared too, but it has really been a great adventure. I do work; although, it took awhile to find a job. The economy is OKAY. There are a lot of jobs, but also a lot of people looking for work which means a lot of competition. Also, this is a popular vacation spot for the Japanese, so if you know how to speak Japanese that’s a plus. If you have anymore questions please message me on Facebook! I’d be happy to answer 🙂

  3. Hafa Adai! Its so cool how you appreciate the chamorro culture and the island of Guam. I’m half chamorro and was planning to start a blog about guam last year but i’m in CA now so i had to say goodbye to that. Reading your blog makes me feel like i’m a lot closer to the island :p. Looking forward to your future post. Hopefully you expand your blog connection to other host like tumblr.

  4. “Hopefully I will inspire some of you to rid yourself of whatever is holding you back from doing what you really want to do with your life!” – Aha exactly what I hope to do as well thru nomadyouth.com! 😛 I am a brand new blogger… will be checking out yours often for inspiration! Thank you for sharing this passion of mine. 🙂 Stay beautiful. x

  5. Great blog I appreciate what you are doing. I was just in Guam from December to January. I love it there!!! When i came back to Atlanta, Ga I literally had a culture shock…along with EXTREME JET LAG lol but Guam is just so much better. I guess I can say that because I grew up in the states and haven’t had the chance to experinces beaches like how I saw on television. The people are nicer, great food, top speed limit is 35 lol cruising speeds. And also being a photographer, I had great weather and scenery to work with while in Guam. I could definitely live there. My girlfriend and some of our friends live their. I plan on going back for the summer. I tell all my friends about Guam and they just hate me for experiencing Guams Greatness lol. You can checkout some of the photos i took while i was on island on my facebook photography page https://www.facebook.com/RiversFlowtography

  6. Hi Antonia,

    Before I came here on Guam, your blog was one of the source of my information about Guam. For 1 and half year of living on Guam, i still exclaim “Guam is so beautiful” every time I see the sunset, or the view of the ocean from Marine Drive or the airport.

    So I was a bit emotional (sincerely!) when I saw that you already left Guam. I know it’s difficult to leave a place like Guam. But what;s important is, you make the most out of your stay here.

    God bless in your new endeavor and may everything go in your favor. (I’m years late for this comment) lol!

  7. Hello! I loved finding your blog because my best friend and I are possibly moving to Guam in August for school. We are doing so much research and it was nice to read something about someone who used to live here in the states that transferred to Guam. Finding an apartment has probably been the biggest challenge yet, as we don’t want to enter a scam. I would love to hear any kind of advice! We’re very nervous and excited at the same time. Thank you so much!

  8. Thank you Antonia (that was my Mom’s name too) for such a positive blog. I’m from Guam, but reside stateside now. It was very heartwarming to know you still had a great experience living on the island despite all the issues living on such a small island can bring. Best wishes on where ever your wandering soul takes you next. Keep on blogging!
