2011 Best Travel Blog Finalist


I never expected this! (char) I’m so happy that after a year of setting up this travel blog, I got 2 nominations from one of the country’s prestigious blog awards, The Philippine Blog Awards.

The Travelling Feet was considered as one of the finalists for the Philippine Blog Awards 2011 Visayas leg where my fellow Pinoy Travel Blogger RV Escotron of Valencia, Negros Oriental was hailed as the Philippine Blog Awards 2011 Visayas Best Travel Blog during the awarding ceremonies held last November 12, 2011 at Silay City, Negros Occidental.

Two weeks after, fellow friend,ย The Travel Teller Olan Emboscado won the Philippine Blog Awards 2011 Mindanao Best Travel Blog during the awarding ceremonies held at General Santos City last November 26, 2011.

PBA Finalist 2011

To add icing to this yummy surprise cake, The Travelling Feet was also included on the list ofย Finalists for Travel Category in the National Level! ๐Ÿ˜€ The mere thought of being included as one of the Best Travel Blogs in a national category gave me goosebumps. I am very honored to be included in that list along with other distinguished travel bloggers nationwide. The best part is almost all of the nominees are my “cyber” travel friends as we share a common awesomeย travel group in Facebook, the Pinoy Travel Bloggersย (PTB).

And on PBA 2011’s final installment and most celebrated awards night which was held last December 3, 2011 at the Carlos P. Romulo, RCBC Plaza, Makati City, one of my idols, Christian Lucas Sangoyo of Lakad Pilipinasย went home with 6 nominations and 2 astig awards – theย Philippine Blog Awards 2011 Luzon Best Travel Blog and theย Philippine Blog Awards 2011 Luzon Best Photo Blog.

It was the dynamic duo of Bisaya friends Chichi Bacolod and Lois Yasay of We are Sole Sisters, corporate slaves turned backpackers after they quit their 5-yr high paying jobs to go on a backpacking trip across SouthEast Aisa, who bagged the award as the BEST TRAVEL BLOG for 2011 – National Level. Way to go girls! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Since I was Cebu-based, I failed to join and support my co-travel bloggers in cheering each for our friends. Am just glad that the PTB Bagets, the best ridiculously cracked, wacky, rowdy yet sane and passionate “young” Pinoy travel rascals bloggers, were there and became the official cheering squad of every fellow Pinoy Travel Blogger who got nominated. Love you guys!!!

Thank you to the Philippine Blog Awards for continuing to recognize each blogger’s hard work! Kudos to you guys! To all of those nominated in PBA 2011, Mabuhay tayong lahat! To the winners, CONGRATULATIONS!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

P.S. Thank you to the person who took this video, if not for you, we wouldn’t know how barangay level the cheers of the PTB Bagets were that night. nyahaha ๐Ÿ˜‰ย
