Nuffnang’s featured blogger for the month of October!
Mervin Marasigan of PinoyAdventurista.com
1. Who are you and what is your blog about?
A daring traveler, mountaineer, food lover and adventure seeker. My blog is all about my adventures and misadventures around the Philippines. I have visited all the 81 provinces in the Philippines and soon, the world.
It seeks to encourage more people to explore and travel the Philippines more and (re)discover how beautiful our beloved country is. It’s all about the adventures, the startling panoramas, the people met, the food tasted, the ride taken and the journey to reach a destination.
2. What can we expect from your blog?
A lot of articles that provide the best tips and travel guides on how to travel around the Philippines and beyond.
3. When and how did you start blogging?
PinoyAdventurista.com started in 2005 as a simple personal blog on friendster and Multiply as a journal of sorts. Until 2009, when it slowly evolved into a travel blog on different tourist and “off the beaten track” destinations in the Philippines and became a “go-to” website for those who wishes to travel around the Philippines.
It was just another blog when it started. However, it dared to be different from the rest by providing the most comprehensive and useful travel guides and tips.
4. What separates your blog from other blogs?
Many people ponder on what they should do on a trip. To make it easier for them to plan their travels, I provide useful travel guides and tips that are simple and easy to follow. My blog has the most extensive travels guides for “on and off the beaten destinations” in the country. It provides detailed information on how to plan a trip, including how to get there, accommodations, things to do, where to eat, itinerary, expenses and contact persons.
5. What is the best thing about being a blogger?
Being able to help fellow travelers reach their destination. And being able to inspire more people to travel and explore different places they never thought they’ll be able to explore.
