Adventures with NieNie has now started it’s first ever Featured Blogger of the month program. This program is to work with other travel bloggers and introduce them to my readers, that means YOU!
Meet Karla from Travel with Karla!
- What inspired you to become a travel blogger?
I’ve been a fan of documenting my adventures in a journal. Since I was a high school student, I’ve been printing some pictures and pasting them in my journal. However, since I’ve been traveling a lot, I realized that I can’t take those journals with me. I decided to create a blog to immortalize my adventures.
- What makes you unique compared to other bloggers?
My writing style is conversational. When you read my blog, you’ll feel that I’m just chatting with you. Most of my readers tell me that it’s not just entertaining but informative as well. I try to be detailed in telling about the directions and tips for my readers.
When I was in Korea, when other bloggers write about the touristy places, I write about the roads less traveled by. I made some itineraries about Korean Drama filming locations. Until now, my stats are still booming because of them. My blog appears in the first page of search engines.
- What got you into traveling?
I’m a go-getter. When I came to Korea, I made sure that I spend my days off in a place I’ve never been. I want to be productive so I’ve decided to travel once a week.
A lot of people wanted to be in my place at that time. It’s one of the reasons why I traveled a lot. I even did some Facebook Lives so my followers will feel that they are really traveling with me.
- What country is next on your bucket list?
After Korea, I’m planning to travel around Philippines. Philippines is my home country but I haven’t explored it yet. A lot of bloggers from all over the world boasts about how beautiful Philippines is. They make reviews as if it’s the best country they have ever been. It made me feel guilty of not exploring it first.
- Where do you currently live?
I just arrived in the Philippines!
- What is your most memorable travel experience so far and why?
My most memorable travel experience is when I sponsored my mom and my sister in their first out of the country trip. I’ve always wanted them to experience what I’m doing. I feel fulfilled that I’m able to give some rewards for the hard work of my parents.
- What is your favorite city and country and why?
Seoul, Korea is my favorite! You’ll see a mixture of modern and traditional architecture. There are also mountains and forest around that’s very pleasing to me as a nature lover.
- What is one destination that didn’t meet your expectations and why?
Hmmm, Lotte World! There are lots of reviews that it’s the best amusement park in Korea. However, the reviews are overrated. The lines are horrible. I’ve been there twice, and got disappointed twice. Everland and Seoul Land are better.
- What is your greatest personal accomplishment?
I think having Travel with Karla is one of my greatest personal accomplishment. My blog made me an influencer. Business establishments are now sending me proposals to be featured in my blog. But the greatest accomplishment for me is being an inspiration to my young readers. I get a lot of messages that they want to be me in the future. It makes me happy whenever random followers call my name in a public place and ask me to have a picture with them.
I’m happy that people trust my recommendations in accommodations, food, clothing, and products and services.
