Where will your Wanderlust take you in 2012?

At the start of every year, people make up resolutions. A number of these resolutions are travel related, as evidenced by the spike of traffic my travel blog (as well as every other travel blogs and sites) receive this time of the year. There’s also a spike in the sales of planners and organizers (and coffee/tea). There are already too many planners out there, but friends Andrea and Faith came up with one with the traveler in mind: the Wanderlust Journal.

Wanderlust Travel Planner
Where will you wander this year?


The planner highlights Philippine festivals like the Sinulog (Cebu), Aurora day celebration (Aurora), Pintados de Passi (Iloilo), Bangus Festival (Dagupan), Pahiyas (Quezon), Baragatan (Palawan), Sandugo Festival (Bohol), Kadayawan (Davao), Feast of the Lady of Penafrancia (Bicol), Masskara (Bacolod), Higantes (Rizal) and Balabag Festival (Boracay). Even if you’re not a festival-going traveler, there are tips from travel bloggers Chichi, Mica, Melo, Dong Ho, Enrico Dee, Mary Jane and someone who goes by the name Nina. There are even discount coupons for accommodations and tours in Puerto Galera, Boracay, Bohol, Batangas, Ilocos, Palawan, Cebu, Mindoro, Zambales and Albay.

Wanderlust Travel Planner
Oh lookie here…

Once upon a time, I was a planner user. Granted, I was in school then, so most of my activities happen during the week. However, once I started working from home and traveling, it’s my weekends that are packed. That’s why when I saw that the weekends have a bigger writing space than the other days of the week in the Wanderlust planner, I had to smile.

The planner that puts an emphasis on the weekend. I like!

But alas, my planner keeping days are long gone. Andrea and Faith gave me a complimentary journal, and as much as I would like to keep it, I think it would be put to better use by others. So I’m raffling off my Wanderlust Journal to one lucky (or exceedingly competitive) reader. To join, simply tweet this:

    I’ve missed you, my dearest, dearest, Nina, and I’m obviously going to play catch-up on your blog! πŸ™‚

    My travelling is based on my husband’s business trips. We just tag along to avail of his free hotel, free hotel breakfasts,free renta car and free tickets(courtesy of airmiles).

    We never plan.Sometimes its just within a few days notice. I always think when you plan so much it doesnt push through. But thats another thing if you have to budget and save for a trip.

    Well this year I want to visit Bohol and Hongkong with my husband and kid so that we can have a family bonding, because last year was really a busy year for me and I think quality time for my family is worth it. That’s my wanderlust for year 2012
