Budget Biyahera as a blog has been up for several years now. Although still young in age, I am very much grateful for all the little (yet super big deal) recognitions that I've been getting throughout the years, especially at present.
During the 2nd quarter of 2012, Meet Manila (the Philippines newest and most comprehensive travel portal wherein #ThoughtfulTourism is promoted) invited me to one of their 'Tertulia Night' events. From there, I was awarded as one of the Empowered Travelers after sharing my views on 'What it means to be an empowered traveler'. On top of that, I was also gifted with a new Lenovo Q350 phone --- a very handy device that could certainly help the wanderluster in me.
Along with the perks of being an Empowered Traveler, I was also given the chance to contribute for the POSTCARDS section on one of the Philippines travel magazines: TRAVEL.
As you all know, my contribution on their Volume Five edition is finally out. Along with my friend Nyel O'Yek's contribution on EL NIDO, you'll also get to read tips and see photos from Rubel and I's recent backpacking trip in Ilocos. Here's a sneak peek of our POSTCARDS contributions:
2012 has indeed given so many blessings and rewards to a humble travel blog such as mine. And for that, I will forever be grateful to those who see value in my blog. Thank you ALL! :) Thank you for giving me the chance to share my passion for travel.
