Flipnomad’s First Pit stop: 100th Article

Time flew so fast and I barely noticed that I just wrote my 100th article. You might not see them all because a few of them are scheduled to be posted on a future date. This would technically be my 101st article to date.

I started blogging last October 2009 and most of my initial topics were about my six month backpacking trip throughout Asia. I wrote about my adventures and misadventures as I hop from Malaysia, to Thailand, and then onwards to Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and China. I also made it up to Nepal and then to India prior going home.

After finishing up my travelogue, I started writing about some Travel Tips and Tricks that I have learned along the way.

I also changed my template every now and then until I found this one that I think suits me best.

Earlier this year, I also wrote about my recent trip around Visayas, Philippines. from swimming with the Whale sharks in Donsol, to trying the Zip Line and Chili Ice Cream in Legazpi, and making our way up to Boracay via Masbate and Iloilo.

I also came up with ‘Meet the Nomads‘, a short interview section with fellow travellers/bloggers out there.  I’m hoping that their stories could inspire you as it did to me.

Aside from writing and posting articles about travelling, I also came across people that inspired me greatly. Special thanks to Nina who linked me up even before I understood its importance, to Anil for providing feedback to my blog, to Jerik, Gaye, Ron, Dennis, Gael, Estan, Marky, and to all other Filipino travel bloggers who took some time to read my travelogues and even shared my articles and thoughts to their own network of friends.

Thanks also to the travel bloggers who inspired me just by sharing their stories like Dave of TLWH, and Dave of EE, Nora, Shannon, Dave and Deb, Toni, Matt, Mark, Lauren and Jack and Aye and to countless more travel bloggers out there on the road right now.

And most of all, great thanks to the readers that spent a few minutes of their time following my journey.

Moving forward, I’ll be posting more and more articles that provides value to those who want to dare to backpack the world just like myself. I’ll try to share some resources that I found online that I think would be helpful for novice travellers like me.

Until my next article.


I finally found a job after bumming around for more than a year. I’ll still post articles weekly on Flipnomad. Now, I’m back in the corporate world, I’m also back in just dreaming about a life on the road, until I get the resources to do it all over again.

    hey man, i stumbled upon this site a few months ago and never stopped reading it ever since.

    what i found nice about this blog is its very clear with its main goal: for people reading your blog to appreciate the art of traveling.

    What's also great is your honest appreciation of things and your simplicity to just write true and fair accounts of the different destinations.

    Through your travelogue, tips and tricks and thoughts, people get inspired to actually realize the world isn't confined in their office cell and there's a whole lot of places to see and things to experience.

    Thanks for putting the Filipinos in the map of great and rockin' backpackers of the world! May you never stop writing about what we all love, travelling the world. Thank You. God Bless!!!
