Blog turns ONE.

It’s been 365 days since I decided to enter the world of travel blogging. Yes, www.thewkndtravel.com & The Wknd Travel Facebook Page were created a year ago. Time flies really fast when you enjoy what you do. I know I’ve struggled in keeping the blog updated due to busy work & personal life schedule; but I am beyond grateful for everything the blog & the Facebook page has achieved in a such a short span of time. I did not expect everyone’s reception to be this good.

Let me share to you some details below. You’ll see why I am really happy of what the site & the Facebook page has achieved in just a year.
