Hey, Stranger, welcome back!
Oy, I am a bad blogger. Maintaining a blog sure can be handful especially if it’s about travel, which requires…resources. I haven’t been on my foot an awful lot of times this year. We’re almost half-way through 2011 and I feel that I’m so behind my adventures!
I have my reasons, you know! My Luang Prabang Trip became even more memorable because it was the time I received a letter from One Young World informing me that I am a candidate for the global summit. Honored, yes. Excited, yes. Budget, eep! So apart from scouring for potential sponsors and donors (YOU can be one of them!), I am saving for this trip –which awfully translates to I’m cancelling all my planned trips from May to July. Bummer, yes. But Zurich and an experience of a lifetime are at stake, so I think two months lurking in the city will be enough. I hope. Although, if something comes up that I absolutely need to be part of, I’m down!
But look on the bright side, from August until January 2012, I already plotted a number of trips for you! Hint: There are some cultural-immersions, cosmopolitan walks and beaches! I’m crossing my fingers for these stints. Some destinations will be a first, but most of them are places I’ve visited. I guess, it’s time to discover new things in a familiar place, isn’t it? Second-half of the year is going to be really exciting; in the mean time, you can go through my previous posts and woes.
If you’re missing my stories (I bet you don’t but for the sake of this post!), you can check out my baby, Cole Walks on Paper –I’m kidding! Seriously, you might want to check out the second issue of Visit Laos Magazine, our travel quarterly, if you want to know more about Laos without much blab from the author *wink*. In this issue, I served as the editor/writer/photographer, so I call it my baby, for some reason (the first issue is the God of Visit Laos, hence my idol). This is a special issue because it covers Pi Mai Lao (Lao New Year) and articles about Temples in the city, hotel info, The List of Must-Tries, flight details, etc. Everything you need in a travel magazine, that is. I also included downloadable maps, just in case!
You can also check out the first issue here.
Don’t forget to visit from time to time, you’ll never know if I happen to win a free ticket or something!
Hugs and toodles,
