el encuentro lois y monette

they would go solo on some trips that makes them look really tough but when i met them i can say that Lois and Monette are among the sweetest Filipina travel bloggers. both of them writes for a tandem travel blog, which are also considered to be among the coolest in the country. i have yet to join them on a trip and that's what im looking forward to doing this year. here to feature two Filipina travelers and their brief travel profile.
