Lakwatsera Ako

Yes, eversince I was a kid my family would tease me that I have "itchy feet" (not the fungal kind!). Well, it's the fault of my parents since I was just a few months old when they started bringing me to Bicol and other local vacation spots and the US when I was 4-years old. I could've lived in the US, but I chose to stay home because I just simply love it here.

In the last iBlog3 our panel was asked, "What do you want bloggers to ponder on?" and I said that as bloggers we should promote what's good in our country. Tourism helps a lot in the economy, so I think it's very important to be an evangelizer for one's country (naks). Anyway, Noemi suggested to me during the Digitalfilipino Web Awards last Friday that I should have a travel blog since I get to travel a lot. I pondered on this and seeing that my stats show that a lot of people read through my travels I thought it'd be great to share my experiences. (I can just imagine Erik chuckling about all the content I'm putting online, LOL).

And here it is:


Lakwatsera - a person who cannot stay put at home; one who loves to travel and go out
Tara! Sama na sa paglakwatsa ko!
- Let's go! Come with me as I travel!

    finally you did it girl. It was about time. I will surely travel with you through this blog. Where's the next trip?

  2. @noemi - Yes! And that's because of you! I've been thinking about it for quite some time already, but I've been quite busy and sometimes I feel I'm putting too much content online already. But anyways, the stats and the objective got the better of me and it's so easy to set-up a new blog (I just did it last night). Anyway, I'll be joining the BOB in Laoag :)

    Hi Aileen, I'm a BoBCast listener. BTW, I've been wanting to have a travel blog someday though I don't travel that much.

    perfect! tama ba nakita ko - there were price/budget listings? :D

  5. @jeric - Wow! Thanks for listening to our BobCast. Hope you enjoy it. Let us know if you have any suggestions for the upcoming Bobcasts. :)

    @noel feria - yes, I'll be putting price/budgets based on my experiences. I did that for my puerto galera trip before and it's being used as a peg by quite a number of people already :)

  6. Hi Aileen. Congratulations to you! At least, this makes your lakwatsa more meaningful as well.

  7. @janette - Yup! I should re-name my personal blog to "Madaldal". LOL.
