About Me

I am Joannay Bernard or JoaB. I’m an island girl! Born and raised in the Dominican Republic, living in Ohio since the end of 2018, married (Actually I met my husband traveling) With degrees in hotel management and business administration.

I love to TRAVEL, to cook and a glass of good wine.

I’m the founder/editor of this website and also BlogbyJoa.com, a travel & lifestyle blog where I share all my travel experiences. Since 2010 I’ve been to more than 60 cities in 9 countries. All this experience taught me to make the most out of my budget by planning wisely and also help my family, friends, and friends of my friends, to spend less and explore more.


This a project I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I plan, you pack will custom-build and design a travel itinerary according to your preferences.
