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!

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.Â IÂ passedÂ theÂ practicalÂ testÂ andÂ IÂ willÂ receiveÂ myÂ 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 SalonÂ forÂ theÂ freeÂ 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*
How about you? What are the plot twists of your 2018?
