Happy trails to you,
‘Til we meet again.
Some trails are happy ones,
Others are blue.
It’s the way you ride the trail that counts,
Here’s a happy one for you.


Welcome to Kate Was Here, my travel and lifestyle blog. My name is Kate, a writer, editor, and commercial model from the Philippines. Aside from traveling, I enjoy Yoga, coffee shops, musicals, and collecting kitschy things. I have four rescue dogs and eight rescue cats. My parents run a funeral parlor and my sister is a pastry chef. I’m an advocate of mental health awareness and animal rights in the Philippines.

A brilliant and handsome pilot once patted my head and told me, “You’re so weird.”

I replied by barking.

Love, peace, and light,
