I received another email from the Philippine Blog Awards team saying that I was chosen as a finalist of the Travel Category for the Main Division. I was surprised again because I did not expect to be part of a list of very notable bloggers. I mean this blog used to be just a personal one, I never knew it would evolve into a Travel Blog. But when it did, I started embracing it which now got me hooked!
It’s nice when you get to help out other people by sharing your experiences of the places you’ve been to. In my own way, I hope to inspire people to get out of that comfort zone and start travelling! I am also honored to be lined up with very good travel bloggers. There are also other travel bloggers not listed but are great and these are people I admire. I’ll probably join the wagon and create my own series of interviews of them so I can learn more about the people behind these blogs.
Date: 12th of December 2010
Place: Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza.
Finalists of the Travel Category of the Philippine Blog Awards:
- Nomadic Experiences
- The Pinay Solo Backpacker
- The Kayumanggi Trails
- Chasing Philippines
- Explore Iloilo
- Just Wandering
- Walk This Way
While I’m on the topic of the 2010 Philippine Blog Awards, here are some pictures of the Visayas leg last November 27, 2010 which was held in Iloilo. It was really great to meet other bloggers! I figured I’ll post pictures as well since Gael started it. hehe.

Gael signed autographs. I figured I’d ask her signature as well. I had no paper available.
Goofing off at the Photowall. The person manning the reception didn’t know how to react, he stepped out instead. hehe
Gael and Edwin
*Thanks to Doi for the pics!
