Hello, my dear friends (“,)
I’m not so sure if you’ve read this: Philippine Odyssey.
At this point, I’m still in the process of putting the ideas together, omitting some of them and working on some emails (write,read,reply, wait, read, reply). Yes, I have received a lot of replies from regional offices of Department of Tourism and some regions were very helpful, sending me file and itineraries for my island hopping.
I’ve printed out a calendar on an A3 paper so I can jot down my daily goals and things that I have accomplished. Writing a schedule is very important as time just slips away.
I have put up a cubicle with a working table and a chair plus a PC to work on. I love it though…I first sat here last night and I am feeling more focused on what I am doing.
I’ve also bought a large and thick notebook to pen down anything that crosses my mind while am sitting on my office, drinking my favorite coffee.
Of course, I’m doing a lot of reading and printing on used papers. I’ve been visiting travel sites and reading a lot of articles about traveling and writing a book. I check flight schedules too and hope for a better deal before the week ends.
Twitter has been very useful. Just this month, I gathered a lot of Filipino travelers on my following list. Clearly, I am not alone on my journey as they too have been traveling around the Philippines with a cause to help boost the country’s tourism. Yes, that’s actually my main goal…To make you want to visit my country (“,)
I’ve also followed Joanna Penn @thecreativepenn who tweets good materials for writing and publishing a book. Yes again, I am writing a book(“,). Thanks to @walterm for referring Ms. Penn to me.
I have never thought planning could be as exciting as this. I’ve met a lot of nice people along the way and boy, consider me lucky, I guess I am.
Guys, any suggestions, tips, advices are welcome. I would love to hear from you.
