Travel with Karla in 2018
It’s been a while since I wrote something about myself. 2018 is full of surprises! Here’s what happened to Travel with Karla in 2018.
1. I switched from being a Travel Blogger to a Travel and Lifestyle Blogger.
What’s the difference? Before, I just visit different places and make some itineraries. Now, I make product reviews and attend events! It feels good to connect brands to their target audience through honest reviews.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the brands who trusted me!
2. Travel with Karla finally has a new logo!
I also increased my subscribers! Thank you friends!

- Twitter: 1,600
- WordPress: 2,300 (DA 27 PA 36)
3. I hosted a bloggers party!
It all started with a Facebook rant. I was upset that I declined a lot of events because I’m only available on weekends. “What if I create my own event?” I invited some blogger friends and got some sponsors! Isn’t it fun to exchange ideas with bloggers from different fields? We really learned a lot from each other.
4. I was appointed as Sangguniang Kabataan Secretary.
It has always been my goal to serve the people. I did not expect to be a part of the government but God made a way to make this possible. It’s great to be a big sister to them and to help them in planning projects and activities.
5. I became one of the breadwinners of the family.
For the first time, I bought everyone new clothes for Christmas! Providing the needs of my family is really rewarding.
6. I became a Youth Advocate to Eliminate Online Sexual Exploitation of Children.
The Philippines has become known as a top global source of materials on child sexual abuse. More than 20,000 child pornographic images are uploaded to the internet every week. I feel that by educating children, this can be avoided. I do this every Sunday.
7. I learned how to do CPR.
Learn CPR. Strangers, and most importantly, your family may need to depend on it. I passed the practical test and I will receive my ID soon!
8. I attended a dance class.
I’m not really good at dancing but I tried! It was fun learning from G-force, the choreographer of celebrities!
9. I colored my hair.
For the first time in my life, I colored my hair! I also decided to curl it for a change. Thank you T & J Salon for the free makeover!
10. I turned 25 this year.
I invited my close friends and family to my Jollibee Party! The last time I celebrated my birthday in Jollibee was when I was three years old. Haha! I’m happy that the guests exceeded my expectation. My family and friends enjoyed playing like a child in my party!
BONUS Plot Twist: My LDR boyfriend for four years sent me flowers, balloon, cake, and chocolates for my birthday! *KILIG*
