Five years ago when I moved from Bicol to Manila because of work, I was a shy provenciana then who only knew three places from where I rent a space: my office, the church and the nearest mall I can hangout on my rest days. That’s how small I thought the world is. But everything changed when I met a number of foreign travelers who visited the country recently. Their travel stories made such a great impact that I got bitten by the travel bug quickly. Meeting them through a traveler’s website, opened a door for me to join a local travel community and to meet the local travelers. I got very curious big time on how they made it possible to go places that I discovered most of them have blogs where they share their travel experiences. I did started my own travel blog too but my accomplishments since I have work on holidays are just a dot to what they have. This is how I got hooked up on travel blogs.
