THE FRUIT GARDEN: Advent Calendar and The Cheese Set for a Cause! (2018 Festive Collection)

THE GARAGE: Guide to the Virtual Reality Food Park @CityofDreams

City of Dreams is about to change how entertainment is defined in the Metro. Slated to open this October 14 is The Garage – a VR zone and food park in one. I was half expecting for the food to become the highlight of this space, but I was proved otherwise. The Virtual Reality space was the most fun element of this space.

Here’s what to expect at The Garage:

Epic Siargao Adventure (Food and Travel Guide)

NSsiargao35

Not many places in the Philippines have captured the hearts and minds of travelers quite like Siargao has.  It’s an Island paradise—the mere mention of its name instantly brings up thoughts of white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, coconuts trees and perfect waves.

The island attracts people from all over the world from all walks of life. This is due in part to the world-class surf and the rich biodiversity of the surrounding waters which have drawn in surfers and sports fishers alike.

There is so much to do and see here despite its being a small island in the Pacific, and we suggest putting Siargao in your bucket list and knocking it off as soon as possible.

My Biggest Learning from TBEX Finger Lakes (and My Big Hairy One-Year Goal)

Walkins Glen-1.jpg

This is a travel blogger collaboration post on our biggest learnings from TBEX Finger Lakes and our collective big hairy audacious goals that we aspire to accomplish before the next TBEX North America conference in Montana.

This is also a sort of social experiment on publicly declaring your goals and how many will be able to achieve theirs in one year’s time.

The learnings and goals are classified into: YouTube Goals, Blogging Goals and SEO Goals. I shared my awesome goal at the end of the post.

 

YOUTUBE GOALS

The Jet Sisters

What is your Biggest Learning from TBEX Finger Lakes:

We learned so much at TBEX about how to grow our fledgling YouTube channel where we focus on our adventures as jet-setting sisters. We’re not new to creating written content as we’ve been running AngieAway.com for eight years already, but success on a video platform has been a challenge for us. And we had two key takeaways from the sessions:post video content consistently and DONE is better than PERFECT.

My Big Hairy Audacious 1-Year Goal:

Our content is well executed and tons of fun, so we’re hopeful if we post more often, we’ll be able to hit at least 2,500 subscribers by the next TBEX.

What is your Biggest Learning from TBEX Finger Lakes:

My biggest learning from TBEX Finger Lakes was from the seminar, “Video First Blogging”, by Anton Diaz. In his talk, I learned about the four “travel moments”—dreaming, planning, booking and experiencing. When discussing these moments, Diaz pointed out that the majority of travelers use YouTube, Facebook and Instagram to fulfill their “dreaming” moments. Up until this point, my YouTube channel, Deanna Troy Travels, has focused mostly on the planning, booking and experiencing moments. My videos showcase what I did, who I met and what I learned.

My Big Hairy Audacious 1-Year Goal:

In order to target the dreaming moments, I will produce more videos with beautiful scenery montages, romantic music and dream-like destinations. Over the next year, I want to really focus on addressing all four travel moments in order to grow the reach of my channel.

What is your Biggest Learning from TBEX Finger Lakes:

We had two things for takeaways. The first one was about the importance of branding. People need to recognize you by something, whether it’s a type of photo or a specific thing you provide them with., i.e. checklist for smarter traveling, cheapest tour lists, etc. The second thing was about finding the right music. Music not only guides your story, but it also expresses the emotions you want your audience to feel.

Our favorite part was the number of great people we met. We never imagined (as first timers) that we would meet so many kind people. We felt extremely welcomed and learned from everyone we met.

My Big Hairy Audacious 1-Year Goal:

We started this journey 8 months ago and currently have a little over 200 subscribers that we are extremely grateful for. In the next year, our goal is to have 10k subscribers with consistent engagement on our channel.

TAITUNG: 5 Reasons to Visit on your next trip to Taiwan

Located on the Southeast of Taiwan, Taitung literally translates to “East of Taiwan.” Taitung makes up for 10% of Taiwan’s total land area, but only holds 1% of the country’s total population.

Taitung doesn’t seem all that popular when people talk of Taiwan. It’s always Taipei, Kaohsiung, Keelung, or Taichung. If your idea of a great vacation involves relaxing hotels and easy, outdoor activities, then Taitung just might be the one for you.Read more

La Petite Parisienne Guide to Food and Wine Pairing

La Petite Parisienne is a wine cellar, deli, pizzeria, and events place all rolled into one. Offering some of the widest selection of classic and premium wines directly imported from France to Manila, it is only apt that they also take part in educating interested parties in the intricacies of wine and the best ways to enjoy it.

La Petite Parisienne offers a multitude of classes about wine, one of them being the Wine and Food Pairing. I don’t claim to know a lot about wine. In fact, I just go for a Moscato or a Rosé without thinking twice whether they match my food or not.

Here’s what I learned at the Wine and Food Pairing Class at La Petite Parisienne
