Highlights of my 2015

Before I enumerate the highlights of my 2015, I would like to thank all those who subscribed, liked, and viewed my blog. When I started this blog, I was very confused with what I wanted to do in life. I lost a great mentor thus I was thinking about my career—I wanted to do something more than my 8-5 job. I thought of coming up with a blog because I like taking pictures, writing, eating, and travelling. To be honest, I was actually very apprehensive at first because I was scared that people would judge me. I am just very paranoid that way. But because I wanted to document my travels and food trips I woke up one day and created a website.

I actually did not care at the number of viewers because my objective was to help people with their travels—how to budget and give them tips. When I looked at my year end analytics, I was really surprised that most of my viewers came from other parts of the world.

Like I said, I would like to thank each and everyone of you from the bottom of my heart for viewing my blog. It really means a lot to me. Lastly, I want to thank God for all the blessings he has given me.

So finally, we close another chapter in our lives and welcome another year. But before I welcome 2016, I would like to look back and share with you what made my 2015 really awesome!

  1. Traveling to Japan alone and visiting 3 different citiesDCIM100GOPROGOPR4763.

Visiting Harry Potter World for the first time

This was one of the best decisions I have made because I learned a lot about myself. I got lost so many times and was really scared but I have learned so many great lessons about the trip. I learned to be independent and strong. I realized that there’s nothing wrong about asking people directions and I learned how to not trust on 3g or LTE. I finally learned how to read maps! I developed a better sense of direction. HAHAHA

 

  1. Being one of the finalists in the Pismo Video Contest

I did not really expect this at all.

Finally, after how many years, we went to Hong Kong as a family. It was indeed crazy yet fun. We shopped until we dropped. We visited Disneyland together and it was magical.

He featuring me was the reason why I also created my own website. I really wanted to inspire and touch people’s lives.

Finally, after how many months of wondering what logo would fit my personality I was able to come up with something. Thank you Mimi Hinal for helping me with this!

I am looking forward to another year of adventures, love, and happiness. The question is, WHERE WILL MARGA GO NEXT?

“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.” – Cesare Pavese

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Much love,

Marga Bellosillo
