It’s my blogiversary you guys! I can’t believe that it has been one year since I decided to make my move from Blogger to WordPress and launch Escape The Confines to share my love of travel. In celebration of this one year milestone of blogging as an official-ish travel blogger, I will be giving away a set of travel goodies to one of you aspiring adventurers out there!

FIRST, LET’S DO A QUICK RECAP.
I was fortunately granted a 3-year multiple entry visa to South Korea so I took advantage of that by going on two separate trips on July and December last year. I’ve managed to publish several blog posts about my adventures there (which you can see under Destinations > Korea) and have been getting quite a lot of visits and comments because of it. Thank you for the support.

I also went on a week-long trip to Japan and took The Golden Route which showcases the very best of the country. Japan is quite known to be an expensive place to visit so I put up a few posts here on my blog to share my Useful Travel Tips for Getting Around Japan on a Budget and 5 Things in Japan You Should Not Miss – Food Edition. I still have a backlog of Japan posts to work on, but that will come right after I finish my Seoul Travel Guide and posts about my 5-day trip to Thailand.

WHERE’S THE NEXT DESTINATION?
I have an upcoming trip to Taiwan later this year. It will be my first time to visit the country. I don’t know why I always passed up the opportunity to go to Taiwan whenever I had the chance, especially if there’s a seat sale. Finally, it’s now set in stone and I’m going this September. I heard that it’s easier to visit Taiwan especially now that their government has eased its visa requirements for qualified Philippine passport holders. They are referring to applicants who have either a valid entry visa or permanent resident card issued by selected countries like Japan, Korea, or Australia.
