The Event: Travel 101: Travel.Live.Connect
What About: Travel 101 is a project that "" (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Travel-101-TravelLiveConnect/)
The event was launched last Sunday, June 26, 2011 at the Outpost, Veteran's Drive, Lahug Cebu City. I really had no idea about this until a good friend of mine tagged me on FB. (the beauty of social networking, eh?)
The program, which was scheduled at 6pm ended up starting 3 hours later. I didn't complain though because Carlo, one of my college classmates turned out to be one of the organizers. Another good friend, Clistar, was also invited to speak for the event. He is by the way, the most well-traveled guy I know. The pesky little kid I used to watch over during college, Rome, was also there. I always have fun when these people are around.
The event organizers invited local travelers to share a little bit of their own travel experiences to the rest of the crowd. There was also a bazaar and several bands who played for the night.
To be honest, I really didn't get as many travel tips or travel stories as I expected. Interviews with featured travelers were a bit short. However, this was a start. Any start is a good start, right? I'm pretty sure there's a heck more to come from Travel 101. Cebuano travelers, be excited.
This is actually a first of a 3-series event. The second of which will be held next Sunday at the same venue. I'm not so sure about the time, though. =). If you're interested, you can keep track of their latest schedule on FB. Their ID is Travel.Live.Connect. You can also send in your travel photos to be part of their AVP presentation.
So even if you're not a frequent traveler or have never traveled at all, I invite you to give the event a visit next Sunday. Hopefully, there will be more travel stories shared.
