it's twelve midnight now and i just finished packing my things for a trip this weekend. a last glimpse of some travel blogs before sleeping reminded me of the seven links project of Tripbase as tagged by Tina of Tina the Frustrated Traveler.
did this as quick as possible. given the short amount of time i have chosen the posts which first came into mind for each category.
[Most Beautiful Post] Vietnam's Cu Chi Tunnel.
my Ho Chi Minh series is among my favorite series and i just realized that the whole series actually covered 15posts. the post on the impressive Cu Chi Tunnels led me to making a spot-by-spot feature with a trail map of the tour.
[Most Popular Post] Batad Rice Terraces
remains as one of my favorite spots in the Philippines. with this post i received a lot of inquiries and even requests of when i would be going again as they wanted to join. one of the photos was also used in a magazine.
[Most Controversial Post] A Stranger.
i dont seem to have a controversial post but this post could come close as traveling solo on a town whose people are not used to encountering a solo traveler. an experience that at once, almost led me to think twice of traveling alone again.
[Most Helpful Post] A Guide to Calaguas.
this group of islands has been a favorite for almost everyone who gets to visit the island. going there three times led me to make a guide to the island which included some of the rarely seen spots of the main island and the nearby islands. the guide also includes a island map with specific spots recommended for beach bums, photographers, underwater activities, and even volunteerism.
[A post whose success surprised me] Lake Mapanuepe.
not yet known to many that aside from the town of Bacolor in Pampanga that a village in barangay Aglao in Zambales was submerged and later formed a lake with the church topmost part being the only part visible from the village. it was just early this year when i went there with travel bloggers and friends Chyng and Ga-el. on;y when i posted it that i realized that very few have known of this place.
[The post you are most proud of] White Beach Malamawi Island
for several posts, i was waiting for the right time to feature the beach which i grew up visiting. it brings back my memories of the island which i first enjoyed exploring.
again thanks to Tina for the tag.
