I was surprised when I received the invitation from DZAR 1026 Sonshine Radio for a live interview on their travel program, Biyahe at Gimik, as a featured travel blogger. For one, I have never had a chance to speak about traveling. It is only through texts and pictures in my blog that I got to share my thoughts and experiences. Also, I have known some of favorite travel bloggers featured in that segment that is why it was quite exciting and, at the same time, a pressure to say yes! Well, I said yes because I don't wanna miss my chance to radio guest for the first time. :D
With Tony and Jamie of Biyahe at Gimik
When I arrived at the station last Friday (good thing it was a holiday :3), the first person who noticed me was Tony Cuevas who happens to be the host of Biyahe at Gimik. He thought that I was a student inquiring for internship. He was surprised when I told him I was invited for the said program and accommodated me immediately with Claire (the one who sent the invitation in my FB page). Later, I met and was introduced with Tony's pretty partner, Jamie Fournier.
I was first nervous and shy with the first few questions but later on my chatty side just naturally came. What I thought of a difficult question and answer portion came to be a one of the great conversations I’ve had. I didn’t know that I will enjoy my first radio guesting experience that much that I didn’t notice an hour has already passed during the interview!

Some of the questions asked during the live interview were: When did you start traveling? What inspired you to travel? What is your international and local dream destination? Among others...
This adds to my list of unforgettable experiences since I started my travel photography blog. :)
