First Time to Meet a Travel Writer
With Edgar (eazytraveler.com) photo by Journeying Pinay
It was EAZY Traveler, Edgar Alan Zeta Yap whom I met. He is a travel blogger too but I want to tag him as a travel writer. I find it more appropriate to call him that way. His blog is a free travel magazine accessed by a single movement of your index finger. I would mean that his posts are all magazine-worthy.
First time to meet a female travel blogger
First Time to Dine (in group) with Bloggers
The experience taught me that I can do it. There is danger everywhere, it should not be directed to motorbike riders only. Even if you are sleeping at the comfort of your own house, there is always an accident. Therefore, motorbike riding is safe if you are cautious. It is also the same with "Driving a helicopter is safe if you are cautious" or "Driving a calesa is safe if you are cautious." I hope you are getting what I want to bring out. I mean, why think "accident" if we talk about motorbike riding? There are more motorbike owners than car owners so it is natural that there are more motorbike accidents. I hope you got what I mean.
Anyway, this is my first ever solo motorbike travel outside my province.
That is the Farola Lighthouse. It is actually historical and it was created by Belgian people who landed on Farola Beach in Tagudin town some 100 years ago.
First Time to Meet a Self-confessed Blog Reader
I specified a "self-confessed reader" because I don't know if I have already met unknowingly a blog reader of mine before. So in this case, Ma'am Cynthia (her name) introduced herself to me that she reads my blog and oh, it was like a town-shattering happiness. I never expected that! She even requested a picture-taking with me and ohhh, fluttered! She said, "Post me!" Now I am posting! Ma'am Cynthia, if ever you are reading this, and I know you are and you will, I would want to thank you! Happy New Year! Regards to your ministry anf family!
First time to cross (and sail on) a river while inside a car
Prior to my first floating car sailing experience
How I wish I could also experience to topload on a jeep while the jeep is being transported by a motorized balsa but I was just very lucky that I received a VIP treatment from my host in Abra on which I was given a chance to reach the farthest town in Abra at the south.
First time to travel with a DSLR
But never mind about that because she entrusted me her beautiful camera and take note, I don't know her really. She just let me use her's. Of course, we became friends during and after I used her camera. I also traveled with her. I just don't want to mention their names to protect their privacy. And it was my first time to learn how to set the camera into manual and automatic modes, uh. That was exciting! I am so left behind about those gadgets. I have captured hundreds of photos in her province. Thanks! You know who you are. And to your sister, you know who you are. Sorry, I just want not to mention names for now because of personal reasons, but I might make another thank you section in my blog when the right time comes. You are a blessing to me guys! I am hoping to meet you again soon!

Bonus: Other Memorable Pinoy Travel Bloggers Meet-Ups
P.S. (Updated) I forgot to include the first blog I followed before I became a travel blogger myself.! That blog is the langyaw.com by Estan Cabigas! Yey! My experience of traveling with him for the first time is posted in detail here. Sorry I can not post a photo of us together because we were both naked that time, Hahahaha! (I'm not allowed to post that, LOLS!). I also met a blogger for the first time who comes from another niche (HR). He is Eric Cabalda! Just read the link I provided and see where we go @_@.
