Why Travel?


There are lots of reasons why many people like to travel:
• To broaden one's horizons
• To discover the world and indulge in curiosity
• To recharge batteries
• To challenge oneself physically and mentally
• To meet interesting and similarly-minded people
• To experience new cultures and lifestyles
• To have some fun

For whatever reason it is, travelling provides an opportunity for us to gain a new perspective with every place we visit and every person we meet along the way.



Leisure traveling has many benefits that is why many people love to travel. It provides an opportunity to step outside one's comfort zone. It is a fascinating way to discover our world, much more than studying the history and local culture on books full of pictures.


The thing about travel is that it often frees us of our inhibitions. Travelling makes us more willing to try things we otherwise wouldn’t. For me, it is an excuse to sample a new cuisine I’ve never tried before. Nothing is more invigorating! The feeling of adventure gives me an all-time high.


I realize that I don't have to go far to experience interesting and stimulating travels because our own local tourism has a lot to offer. There is a lot of beautiful things to see in our country that we don’t notice.

Just by visiting a new town or region, one will get to know a new culture, and a new natural environment. It gives us a chance meet new people with whom to exchange experiences and pleasant things with. Trips to the sea is always an enrichment in my life.

Travelling affords me fond memories to remember and funny anecdotes to re-tell my kins in the following years.

My Trip Down Bloggers Lane

I love reading about other invididuals' travel posts and posting my opinions in forums. And this got me started in blogging.

I find internet blogging as a good way of keeping memories since I enjoy writing about my feelings and the fun I had in a day. It makes me happy to be able to reread back and remember such fond memories with photos and all the works!

Blogging has opened up opportunities for me
• To increase my reach and influence
• Given leads to connections and work
• Helps promote my affiliate links
• Proves to be an excellent way to drum up attention for my services
• Brings more traffic to my sites and blogs
• Getting event/blogger invites
• Winning freebies/contest giveways

Not only do I get interactive online with blogging, it also serves like a money milking tool to me. What used to be an online journal activity is now eating up my time! I really enjoy doing all these!

I want an Adtel Home Solar Kit !

This is my official entry to the Lopez Link Adtel giveaway contest

When our country was badly hit by Typhoon Ondoy last year, I realized the need and urgency for finding alternative sources of electricity. Many homes experienced brownouts because of inadequate power and scheduled electricity for conserving energy. It was a desolate realization of how precious and insufficient the Philippines’ power supply is.

Lopez-owned company, Adtel, came up with a Home Solar Kit that gives free energy source. Being solar-powered, it is a fool-proof source of energy and totally-free. Even in rainy days, anyone with an Adtel Home Solar Kit can harness sunlight and benefit from the the energy it generates with less effort. Owning one would make electricity afforadable to low-income communities and provide sufficient supply of energy even to sub-urban places.


Electricity is an indispensable element of everyone of us needs. Energy prices have risen higher than ever in recent years, which leaves us consumers under the mercy of Meralco. Only in the Philippines will you find that heating and lighting a home gets highest bill among household expenses!

I want to win this Adtel Home Solar Kit for my 64-year old, mother who lives in Laguna. Brownouts are a NO-NO when you have an elder plus a toddler at home. This solar home kit will surely give her and my child comfort and peace of mind during outages aside from lowering her electricity bills significantly. She has been living in frugality for a long time to be able to cover up her household expenses topbilled by electricity. Eventually, she will have extra money to spend on more important basic needs like food, health and medicine.




Giving this to her as a birthday gift (she turns 65 on September 25) would definitely make her day. It is the least I can do for all help and support she extends in taking care of my daughter and for loving us unconditionally.
