About the Author:

Victoria Ugarte, the Intrepid Traveler, is becoming known around the world as one of the most recognized faces of travel and culturally correct behavior. Her journey to this acclaim started in her country of birth, and childhood, in the Philippines. Raised in Manila in the 1960’s, Victoria’s father, publisher of former national newspaper The Philippines Herald, regularly interacted with foreign dignitaries, businessmen, and expatriates from all over the world, giving Victoria the opportunity to form solid friendships with people from different nationalities. Being blessed with such a diverse and colorful group of friends, Victoria was exposed to different languages, customs, and cuisines from an early age, giving her the feeling of belonging to the world. At the age of eight, she was bitten by the travel bug when she traveled to Madrid with her family, where she connected with her Spanish roots and lived for several months. After migrating to Australia with her family in the 70’s, fashion and travel became synonymous with Victoria’s career. With over 25 years in the Australian fashion industry, Victoria traveled regularly all over Australia and the world on business, dipping into wonderful and exotic places, as well as more traditional destinations, interacting with people from a wide variety of cultures. After the Global Financial Crisis of 2007, Victoria felt it was time to hang up her fashion hat and focus on her dual passions, that of traveling and writing. Ever inspired by the spirit of adventure of her muse, Amelia “Millie” Earhart, Victoria established her widely popular travel blog in 2008, Postcards From Millie. Ever the intrepid traveler, she continues to spend 3 months out of every year traveling the world, keeping her readers posted on exciting destinations, latest travel tips, and inspiring them to “Explore. Discover. Live”. Victoria has authored several books with Amazon, including "The Travel Bible For Women: A Complete Guide To Safe & Smart Travel" and "Culture Savvy For Women: A Complete Guide To Culturally Correct Behavior Around The World." She regularly publishes travel articles for “Her Magazine” (NZ) and “Pink” (NZ).
