I won Dispatch Magazine’s Hunt for EL SUPREMO. It was a simple photo contest of posting your most fearless picture of yourself while traveling. Among the many photos that I have in my archive, I wondered which one to place but when they said we could create a collage, I decided to post most of my crazy photos in the different places I’ve been.
- Plane tickets to Kota Kinabalu for one male and one female contestant
- Plane tickets to anywhere in the Philippines for another pair, and
- 3 consolation prizes.
Full mechanics can be viewed here. Below is my photo entry with a caption on why I love traveling.
My entry to Dispatch Magazine’s Hunt for El Supremo
Bungy and cliff jumps, headstands and crazy stunts. I do just about anything to make the most of traveling. I live for adventure and share my stories in my travel blog (http://soloflightEd.com). Every journey is a work in progress as I learn more about life and discover realizations that I am normally unaware of when I’m stuck at the office. Traveling on a budget makes a trip more exciting as you acquire new skills of improvisation. Going on an expedition is not as expensive as you think; so long as you sacrifice little luxuries to gain experiences that are far more enriching.
While I slowly conquer destinations in the Philippines and the rest of Asia, I relish every moment of exploring. I dare to take crazy shots which make me unique as a traveler. Life is too short to live inside a bubble. I prefer to go out and live to its fullest.
This is my entry to the Dispatch Media Magazine El Supremo: The Hunt for Independent Traveler contest. I tried scouting for a single photo to represent my fearlessness but there’s just too many to show. I hope to travel again in the soonest time possible.
Dispatch Magazine is a newsletter that features people, places, activities, gear, and knowledge of travel. I like the fact their aim of bringing forth travel+adventure+advocacy to their audience. I’ve done travel and adventure and I’m still starting out with ‘Advocacy’ because I realize that our purpose for going to places change as we learn more about life beyond our borders. Having a purpose makes us realize that we want to protect what we have experienced so that we can share that experience with others.
Things have been pretty busy nowadays and realizing I’ve won is a welcome treat. This is one of those vacation deals that I’ve always wished because of wanting to get out of the office environment for awhile.
My biggest question right now is: What to do in Kota Kinabalu? I don’t even think I can file for a vacation leave anytime soon. I’ll request if I can have the dates of the trip to be moved. But I don’t want to worry too much as I’m just glad that my photo won.
