Welcome to followyouroad
Hi! I’m Sam Coronado, creator of followyouroad — a Filipino travel blog. If you want to start traveling the Philippines without the aide of tour packages but don’t know where to start, this blog is for you.
My goals for followyouroad are simple: to empower you to go on unique adventures all over the Philippines by providing digital inspiration, to give out free do-it-yourself guides, and to create a community as an avenue to share travel stories.
I’m Sam Coronado, a graduate of UP Diliman with a Sociology degree, and currently an MBA grad school student of De La Salle University.
My career for half a decade is in the development sector, which I don’t often write about! I have so many hobbies and side hustles that I have detailed here.
As a travel blogger, I’ve been blogging since 2008 through various platforms such as Multiply, Blogspot, Livejournal, and WordPress. Back in 2013, I wrote under “Greenspired”, which is a blog about the environment. Because of my solo backpacking trip during a foreign internship, I eventually switched the blog’s niche to travel.
My blog was renamed followyouroad in 2015, as I started hosting my own website. It was inspired by Pauline Wilson’s song. Since then, I’ve written for national dailies and travel magazines about backpacking locally and climbing mountains.
Personally, I love having this blog as my personal space to share my travel inspirations!

I’ve separated the places you can travel depending on the terrain:
- Earth — Mountain climbing, spelunking, or just good ol’ nature
