The Philippine Travel blog is an experimental project on group blogging that focus on both local and foreign travel, tourism and frequented Philippine destinations. Our goal is to promote each and every travel destination of the Philippine’s 7,107 islands, serve as a guide to tourists and travelers, and educate the online reading public about the great wonders and richness of the Philippine archipelago — all thru the power of blogging.

Glo often refers to herself as a tech-ignoramus for being such a novice in the blogosphere. A dear friend based in Germany lured her into the wonderful world of blogging a year ago, mainly for better tracking on each other’s lives. But blogging awakened in her a long-forgotten passion which is writing. Aside from her personal blog which she maintains mainly as an outlet and therapy, you can find her too at The Philippine Culture Blog. Glo is originally from Gubat, Sorsogon and came to Los Baños in 1989 to study Chemistry. She never got to leave LB since then. At present, Glo is a proud single-mom to Raine (Rainier Brando: born 29 December 2002), a task she juggles with being a Researcher, among other things.
