Going Places: 3 years of travel, discover, experience and places...

Going Places is a travel blog with the goal of sharing the best travel experiences in each destination it features in a travel magazine-style and tell-all adventure writing.  Each destinations and places featured here is aimed to be discovered and promoted as an ideal travel destination. Travel is one great experience so a chance to see the world is a lifetime opportunity!

This travel blog would also like to encourage travel-trotters and readers to explore the beauty of the Philippines as an ideal travel destination too as there are wonderful 7,107 islands of the country waiting to be explored and experienced. Philippines is beyond the usual, experience it.

The best travel trips is shared with friends! (Puerto Galera, March 2008).
Part of the travel stories is family bonding. (Boracay, April 2008).
Going Places turns 3 this year. This blog started as a personal online diary back in 2004. But in September 2008, this blog rebirths into a full pledge travel blog because of the author's love for travel and writing. So why named and choose Going Places? The word "going" tells an action and moving actively and constantly synonymous to travel or "lakbay" or "byahe" in Filipino which is the essence and type of the blog while "places" refers to the destinations and places itself that this blog adventures and explores with. Going Places' name is a break-away from cliche blog titles to make it unique and one of a kind travel blog.

In 2009, Going Places started campaigning "Going Green", a travel for a cause campaign that promotes Green Travel - a way of travel with social responsibility of taking care and concern to the environment of the place that you are visiting. Learn more about the best of Going Places here.

Going 3!  Its time to take travel to the highest level! (Hawaii, August 2010).
This year, Going Places celebrates its 3 years of traveling and sharing the beautiful places it has featured through its travelogues. It's still like a dream that one can't imagine yet there still many goals that Going Places want to achieve. It has maintain it's motto of "travel", "places", "discover" and "experience" as travel lets you have great discoveries and great experiences in life that's why it adapted the slogan - Travel is an experience of a lifetime!

So what are you waiting for? Let's go places! And make travel as an experience of a lifetime!
