My trip to the Philippines is coming up so quickly and I’m incredibly excited! For those that don’t know, I’ll be in the Philippines from October 2-20, 2016. I’m heading there to attend my very first TBEX conference which is the largest conference and networking event for travel bloggers and media. Each year it takes place in different cities around the world, and I was stoked to see there was one in the Philippines this year because it’s a country on my bucket list.
I’ll be traveling to the Philippines with Mel Hattie, a fellow travel blogger I met while at BlogHouse Milwaukee in 2015. Mel is from Halifax, Nova Scotia in Canada and will be my partner in crime for this trip. You can follow her blog, Mel Had Tea, here.

Thanks so much! I hope the rainy/typhoon weather improves by the time I’m there.
