Women. Travel. Social Media.

Ning and I have been invited to be speakers at the inaugural Women in Travel conference in Bangkok, and today is the day I fly up to the Thai capital! *woohoo*
For a brief intro of us by the Web in Travel team, click HERE. Very nicely written!

It would’ve been great if the BFF and I could be heading up together to share our amazing 9-month trip around the world but she’s in Rome filming for a TV special and will only be back in Singapore next month.
I’m not someone to not do something just because I have no one to do it with!
So yeaaahh, I’m flying up and sharing on our behalf! It will be a good break too after starting work at Channel NewsAsia in March, and being on a steep learning curve! I am loving my new job, but this restless girl can’t resist any excuse to travel, travel, travel. *grin*
I’m looking forward to meeting the other women speakers at the conference, listening to them, and being part of this amazing vision.
The organizer of the conference, Yeoh Siew Hoon, pointed me to this article. I just read it and even watched the little video at the end. I realize that I’m part of something much bigger, of someone’s vision, that I realize is also my own.
Have a read by clicking here. Women travelers rock!
If you’d like to find out more about Web in Travel and their events, “LIKE” them on Facebook like we’ve already done. Real cool stuff 🙂
OK, I gotta run! Don’t forget to “LIKE” Ning & me on our FACEBOOK page too.

Ciao for now! — PAM

Home is where the Heart is…

It's been 10 days since we've touched down in Singapore and I'm feeling unusually down today. Partly because I know I need to write, and the words are just not flowing. Partly because I know, too, that my heart is restless and it wants to be somewhere else. [caption id="attachment_385" align="alignleft" width="640" caption="Somewhere out there,…

Time Travelers

Ning & I set up this blog way before we left on our 9-month adventure with lofty plans to blog regularly as we make our way around the world. But for those of you who have travelled continuously for that length of time, living off a backpack, and staying in (often) basic & affordable lodging,…

Happy Monday Bleu!

Hey folks... As some of you know, yours truly succumbed to the nasty viral bug over the weekend and had to wear a face mask whenever I went out for meetings. Pam actually said I looked like a mugger with my face covered. Grrrr. Thanks BFF... Anyway, being stuck home most of the time has made…
