Welcome to Chilisa.com! My name is actually Theresa, a Filipina who by happenstance is now based here in Germany. Chilisa is the name given to me by one of the Japanese restaurants I visited here in Germany, somehow ‘lost in translation’, symbolic of the daily hustle and bustle of living in a foreign country with a totally foreign language. Writing(in English) has always been one of my passions. However, combining it with learning the German language has been quite a challenge. This blog is my creative outlet for my occasional homesickness. I hope my writing could help you not only in your next travels but in daily life as well. Cheers!
Chilisa.com is a lifestyle blog which I started after writing a couple of restaurant reviews in TripAdvisor and after some friends asked me for some tips about some cities I have traveled to. Most of the time before my husband and I travel, I prepare a list of where to go and eat so that we do not fall into the tourist traps and spend more money than we planned to. Hope you get some useful tips for your next adventure!
