Why do you like to travel even during the rainy season? I posted this question as part of the contest/giveaway of Explore8 Travel’s first birthday.
Hmm… I wonder. Only a few joined. But still, I’m grateful that these three people responded and participated in the contest. So despite not meeting the required number of entries for this contest, I’ll still be giving away the prizes that I promised. All of them become winners by default.
Congratulations to the following:
1st PRIZE goes to…..Eileen Campos of the TheSuperTourists.com. As winner, Eileen gets to join Explore8 Travel’s Viaje Laguna WhiteWater Rafting Adventure for free.
Her answer: “What I enjoy about traveling in the rainy season is that flights and accommodation are usually cheaper, crowds and tourist spots are altogether less crowded, and there’s a slower, chiller vibe to the different places when you go on what is supposedly the “off season.”
Plus it’s during the rainy season that you can be able to enjoy a whole new mess of activities such as white water rafting, kiteboarding and windsurfing and a bunch of other activities that either require strong winds or an excess of water in rivers and lakes. I’ve done white water rafting in Cagayan de Oro a few years back and I would love to have the same experience again in a much closer location from where home is.”
2nd Prize goes to….Ma. Angelica Gallego of Lakwatserang Negra. Ms. Gallego gets a Paccube Travel Organizer as prize.
Her Answer: “I appreciate the nature more when there’s only few people around me and because of that i could reflect more about life, that’s how i learn from my every travel.”
“I live my life like a fish, i don’t just go with the flow but instead i swim against it.”
And the 3rd prize is awarded to Gem Tadefa of PagesFlipper. He gets a foldable eco-bag as prize. His answer:
“Feels like you are being trapped to one place but instead of complaining, it gives you the time to stop and savor the things around you. Another thing I noticed, the impact of rainfall on the roof top or on the umbrella you are holding with will create a perfect musical background.”
Once again, thank you to these three who joined. I’m grateful that my travel agency business, Explore Eight Travel has survived its first year in the industry.
