A TRAVEL BLOGGER:
Clement at Boracay Island
Clement started to blog during the peak of then Friendter’s (Top Social Networking Site before Facebook dominated the cyber-world) featured blog section. His first blog focused mainly on his personal thoughts about life and inspired plenty of his followers and readers.

After almost 2 years, he then started creating his own travel blog which focuses on his journey to the best spots in the Philippines. However, the travel site had been left out from his forte because of the strong need of education. After his graduation, he then started to realize his plans on traveling the Philippines, searching for the best spots, wonders, natures of the country and sharing it to the world.

Being a travel blogger is not a simple career. You need to be resourceful and informative about your niche. Thus, you document everything like that of a real chronicler. You explore, traverse, and experience every inch of your traveled destination. Willingness is the key!

He has this mission of traveling the best spots in the Philippines before touring the world while sharing his experiences and moments to the world.
