To kick off 2016, I am starting yet another exciting blog series and this time, it’s going to be all about YOU… my readers! ♥
To see the other ongoing blog series that I have, go here.
You see, I often receive letters and notes (sometimes with photos too) that convey how I have helped or inspired some of you to “DO” or accomplish something — may it be traveling, starting a blog, planning your dreams, going after your dreams, etc.
No matter if I have done that kind of ‘effect’ knowingly or inadvertently towards you, the fact remains that it always makes me happy to read through your heart-warming stories of travel, perseverance, and success! I honestly never thought that one day I could touch other people’s lives, yet now that I am able to do so… I can honestly say that it is the most fulfilling thing that I get out of blogging and it surely motivates me to keep doing what I do.
You bet that it always fills me with joy whenever I receive messages from you guys… but one day, I thought: “Why not share these stories with everybody else too?” Through such way, we can all get to know one another and probably even cultivate an encouraging ‘environment’ as well!
So if you have ever been inspired by a destination, hotel, activity, or trip that I wrote about, OR if you have ever been inspired to travel or do anything because of my blog articles, come send me a message at along with a high-res landscape photo of yourself and a brief note regarding your journey or situation, and I would absolutely LOVE to include your story in this series!
Now to start off the first ‘volume’, let me present to you the following letters from 5 wonderful girls!
All About YOU – Vol. 1
Camie Juan A letter and a photo from Paris, France
Camie is from the Philippines and we got in touch online via Facebook sometime last year. At some point, we started talking more about Europe, how I was able to travel around, etc. and as our conversations went on, she eventually told me that it was because of my story and my blog that pushed her to plan and book her trip. When I heard that, you bet that it gave me the warm fuzzies and I wished nothing but the success of her travel plans!
Well… guess what? It was an absolute success of course. Just a month ago, Camie finished her 3-month trip to UK and some other European countries and you bet that she will be doing more travels in the future.
