Our featured travel blogger this Sunday is an advocate, a PR practitioner, a postcrosser and a Wikipedian all rolled into one.
Claire Algarme or simply Claire lives in the Philippines and loves to travel within the country and outside of it. The traveling bug bit her while she was still a kid, as she was always spending school breaks going for a vacation with her relatives. But the itch became more insistent when she worked for an international non-profit and had the opportunity to go to various countries.
Her travel blog, First Time Travels chronicles her, well, first-time travels. It may they be in a new continent, country, province, city, town, village, hotel, restaurant, landmark, museum, or mode of transportation. It’s a way for her to connect to the whole world and enjoy new learning and discoveries. Along with seeing various cultures, she also enjoy taking pictures and writing about her adventures and showcase them in her blog.
Her travel blog was created to help first-time travelers as they embark on something different. It is an assurance for every tourist and traveler that even the most seasoned one has started out as a neophyte. The articles there are her experiences and observations when she has set foot on a place for the first time.
Asked about the Selfie Photo above, Claire quipped "It was taken at Calauit. I choose it because I want to promote the preservation of nature, especially here in our country."
