Something *NEW* (The Lady’s 2012 Blog Project)

In my year-ender post, I mentioned that I’m working on a special project for THIS blog of mine.  And I’m happy to say that d-day has come to finally reveal it (meganon?!)

On my sidebar, you can see “The World” as one of my categories.  And yeah, I’ll be adding a subcategory called “SPECIAL FEATURE: The Travelers” — which is kind of self-explanatory.  Obviously, I’ll be featuring one traveler per month, but they won’t just be any travelers.  For the first half of 2012, my goal is to cover EVERY CONTINENT.  Which brings us to…

Six Continents in Six Months

To satisfy MY and YOUR “wanderlust,” I’ve contacted some of the people I know who’ve been to each continent to share their very own stories (thanks much to some of my friends who already agreed to do this project with me!)  So if you’re itching to travel but still haven’t quite reached your “travel fund” goal yet, then all you have to do is sit back, relax, and READ MY BLOG!  Of course I expect you to enjoy, too, along the way! 😀

So that’s six months, six continents: South America in January.  North America in February.  Oceania (or Australia) in March.  Europe in April.  Asia in May.  Africa in June.  After that, let’s see what happens…

So check back every 12th of the month.  Wala lang…  Kasi 6+6 = 12 — 2012!  Haha, sabaaaw!  But yeah, EVERY 12TH OF THE MONTH.  Starting this January 12, 2012…  See ya!

In the meantime, you can check out my very own “travel history” here.  (Oy don’t expect much!  I, myself, am a “budding traveler!”  Hahaha!)

AND OH!  Since it’s the New Year and all that — wherein “cleaning” is one of the infamous resolutions — I decided to do my own “cleaning!” 😉  I’m such a major bookworm that my room is already FULL of books — both read and unread.  I can actually “earn” from them if I ever decide to have a “rent-a-book” business (haha!) or sell them for a fraction of their costs.  But no, I have a better idea!  Instead of making a profit out of them, I’ve decided to give them away for FREE!  Don’t worry, they’re all in GOOD CONDITION.  And yeah, I prefer to call them PRE-LOVED instead of secondhand!  Think The Lady’s Pre-Loved Books!  Mwahahahahaha! 😛

And since our theme is TRAVELING, I scoured my entire book collection for some travel-themed ones!  Hence one of my favorite book series, Students Across the Seven Seas (S.A.S.S.) 🙂

Students Across the Seven Seas is a novel series published by Penguin.  There is no set author for the series.  The books center around a fictional Study Abroad program which shares its name with the series title…”

I’ll be giving away TWO BOOKS to ONE WINNER:

Now and Zen by Linda Gerber
(set in Japan)

 and

When Irish Guys Are Smiling by Suzanne Supplee
(set in Ireland)

To join, simply send me your answer to this question (in one sentence, please):

“What is your DREAM DESTINATION and WHY?”

Send your answers to mikhaelageorgette@gmail.com (I repeat, only one sentence) on or before January 14, 2012 (Saturday).  The winner will be notified directly via e-mail.

[CONTEST CLOSED]

Bon voyage, mi amigos!!!  (Oha, I just used both French and Spanish in ONE SENTENCE!  Hahaha! :P)

P.S: Don’t forget to come back on January 12, 2012 (Thursday) to read all about my very first featured traveler!  Ciao!!!
