prize surprise - get lost magazine

go to a place and get lost! that's something you can do this summer. there's this team of writers who just travel to places around the world to discover some of the wildest cultures. the Get Lost team.i have been collecting travel magazines, from the local ones to the ones published globally. yet i always look up to this magazine entitled Get Lost!. it is published quarterly in Australia. and because i really like it, i emailed the editor last year to extend my deep appreciation for making such a very cool magazine for travelers who's always on the go.
after a few months, the magazine's editor Tamara Caddy emailed me and informed me that my letter was published on issue 19 of Get Lost! magazine. i was surprised! but it didn't end there, because of that, i too received a book entitled A Year of Festivals by the Lonely Planet.so just last week, i received a copy of the magazine, where my letter was published, the book, and a special note from Tamara. i am then, extending my gratitude to the Get Lost! team for this. check out their website at www.getlostmag.com.

i'll make a review of the book A Year of Festivals on a separate post.

note: this magazine already featured the Philippines in its previous issues. but it is not yet being distributed in the Philippines, so I just get my copies through a friend in Australia and i will be subscribing soon.

The idea of getting lost somewhere really excites me. Parang nakakakaba because wala ka sa comfort zone mo pero masaya din kasi you get to experience something new. Basta wala lang criminal elements eh ok ako na mawala din.

Congrats sa magazine dom. I think it's high time you produce one.

>hi eunice, not sure. because in the philippines there's a lot to choose from cheap ones to really luxurious ones. all of which still offers the beautiful tropical beaches.

if you get to choose the philippines, we'd love to be of help.

the magazine is really cool! no one will not like it.

>hi ash, thanks! im happy to see new readers here.

>eben, hindi naman. simpleng simple nga lang sinulat ko doon pero na-appreciate nila.

>pusang gala, salamat! ako din hindi rin naman ganun ka dalas mag email. in fact, ito pa lang yata ang email ko sa isang travel magazine.

>rayts, sure!hoping to see you soon.

>bryan, salamat. hindi pa naman. simpleng letter lang yon kaya nagulat din ako na pinublish nila.

dalhin ko to pag nagkita tayo ulit para makita mo rin tong magazine.

saya talaga pag masubukan mong pumunta sa isang lugar na wala kang kaalam alam. subukan mo. ingat lang.

>jasper, hahaha... astig yon pag nangyari yon. wala naman tong ginawa ko, simpleng letter lang naman.

>richard, salamat. buti na lang at nagustuhan mo yung book. para nga talaga sa iyo yan.

abangan ko yang byahe mo sa rizal. damihan mo lagi ang mga pictures. iniisip ko nga kung kelan ako makapunta ng mindoro.

good luck sa summer class.

>ark, tama ka dyan. saya nga pag na publish ang isang bagay na gawa mo kahit simpleng letter lang. salamat sa pagdaan.

>hi ev, thanks! i appreciate your visit here. keep in touch.

>erick, ayos ah! anong issue yon? baka meron ako nun.

>hi warfairy, thanks!

>hi helena, thanks!

>hi joy, thanks! yes. the place is interesting because they were able to preserve it.

>ferdz, talaga? bihira ito mahanap. buti at may nakita ka na. ganda nga ng format.

>hi doc, hahaha... oo panis na panis na yung burger mo. padating na rin si beero dito. kita kita tayo.

pag nangyari yon ok pero mas astig pag ikaw din at mga kwela mong kwento ang ma publish.

>hi ellesig, let's hope that they'll start disributing it here.

>eliment, wala naman akong ginawang extraordinary doon. kung mababasa mo ang letter napakasimple lang. natuwa lang siguro sila dahil galing sa pinas.
