Nuffnang Featured Blogger for the Month of April 2011
My name is Enrico Dee. I was born and raised in Bacolod City. I took up BS Computer Science at the University of St. La Salle. My blog is entitled BYAHILO: Ito ang Trip Ko! at http://www.byahilo.com. BYAHILO is all about Philippine travel. It’s all about my experiences as I wander from one island to another. You can expect more cities to be explored, more festivals to experience more local delicacies to savor and more old churches to visit.
BYAHILO started in 2004 as a personal journal of my trip to Bacolod City during the 25th Masskara Festival. What started out as a simply online diary became a guide for people who wished to travel to the City of Smiles. From then on it started to grow and little by little I also had the chance to visit other cities as well. Although traffic has significantly increased in the past few years, BYAHILO still remains the same, it is still an online journal of all my travel experiences and misadventures.
BYAHILO talks about Philippine travel. Everything is all about the Philippines. But what made BYAHILO stand out from the rest is its extensive coverage of the various festivals around the country. I am always amazed at the bursting colors in various festivals around the country, the loud beating of the drums and the nonstop street parties. And with at least one festival slated every month, there’s just a lot of things to cover for BYAHILO.
Being a travel blogger allowed me to explore the best of the Philippines. I had the opportunity to explore the breathtaking views of Batanes down to the white sandy beaches of Malamawi Island in the province of Basilan. In between, I had also had the chance to explore the centuries-old churches and palatial mansions. Through blogging I also had experienced the most colorful festivals of the Philippines like the Masskara Festival in Bacolod, the Dinagyang Festival of Iloilo City, the Sinulog festival of Cebu and the Kadayawan Festival of Davao.
Because of travel blogging, I had more excuses to explore the best beaches of the Philippines like Coron and El Nido in Palawan, Sumilon Island, and Boracay.
If not because of travel blogging, I doubt if I would not be able to do all these stuff.
