My 7 Links : Travels, Adventures and More!

I was nominated by Renevic of Mandaragat. Mamumundok. Lagalag. to take part in My 7 Links Project of Tripbase. This project aims “to unite bloggers in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again.” Here are my 7 links:

MOST BEAUTIFUL POST - I've Fallen In Love with Aurora

Aurora province doesn't just have awesome natural wonders, it also has wonderful people and offers endless adventurous activities. That's why I quickly have fallen in love with the beauty and the warm people of Aurora province.

MOST POPULAR POST - Mt. Pulag National Park - How To Get There

As a mountaineer, climbing Mt. Pulag is one of my dream climbs. I haven't climb it yet, but this post has been drawing too many traffic to my site. It has been a reader's favorite since I posted it last November 2010.

MOST CONTROVERSIAL POST - Ciudad Christhia Resort 9 Waves, San Mateo Rizal

I don't really do reviews, but this incident definitely deserves my opinion. My readers ought to know our experience. This is not to discredit the resort but to serve as a wake up call for them (hopefully...).

MOST HELPFUL POST - Pahiyas Festival 2011 in Lucban Quezon

With more than 4,000 page views, it has been my readers' favorite for the past 3 months. It gives a brief background about the festival, as well as tips on side trips and how to get there.


This is the post with an overwhelming number of FB likes at 928, and counting. I never expected it, thanks to all who liked our road trip.


A trip to the land of "Mangyans and Tamaraws", Occidental Mindoro really has a lot to offer. It is so underrated and not a usual tourist destination. I believe that Sablayan in particular deserves to be in the tourism map along side with other famous tourist destinations in our country.

THE POST THAT I AM MOST PROUD OF - Solo Trip to Legazpi City and Daraga Albay

The trip that started it all. Armed with just a plane ticket, a backpack and a camera, I went on my very first solo trip. Now, I'm proud that I went out of my comfort zone and started to do solo trips!

Now, I wish to pass on this project to fellow bloggers:

Brian of Meet the X-plorers
Teng of Teng Turista
Nathalie of chronicles of my wandering soles
Gepay of Ang babaeng Lakwatsera
Dr Wends of Journeys and Travels

Hope to read your 7 links too! :)

some stats still amaze me, like you, nagugulat din ako minsan sa mga gusto at fave ng readers ko. i never expected that my trip to romblon would end up as the most fave post kasi mas marami pa akong gusto sa mga narating ko pero di naman masyado nag-rate hehe.

keep on blogging man and see u in some other trips :)

Love this idea for Pinoy travel blogs. Reading everyone's 7 links now :)

lakwatsera de primera said...

I agree Mervs, I think your Sablayan post deserves more attention and should be included among the "must-visit" places in our country.

@lawstude - yeah, minsan yung mga posts na hindi ko masyadong ineffortan would end up the most visited../hehehe! I think, dahil punong puno ng keywords Laguna Road trip na post ko kaya well searched cya kaya umabot na sa 900 FB likes... hehehe!!!

Thanks Sir Oman! Hope to see you on the road! :)
