FILIPINO TRAVEL BLOGGERS AND THEIR CAMPAIGN SOUVENIRS

Generally, Most of us when we go on a trip for a holiday we collect or buy things . Those things maybe free , cheap or expensive. But regardless of how  expensive it is, either cheap or just simply free,  the souvenirs or pasalubong we get and collect create so much fun and will later on  become symbols or memories of special places you visited . 

I asked some of  today’s  influential travel bloggers in the country about pasalubong list .Souvenirs they usually bring home from their holiday trip. And here’s what they can share. 

So before leaving home, make yourself acquainted with the following list of pasalubong and/or souvenirs that can tell a story about your trip…

Edelito Sangco of Island Vacations” I buy anything not bulky bearing the name of the place I went to, from key chains, purses, mugs, display items, etc. During my travel to Spain, my bag was subjected to inspection at Barajas International Airport due to the unusual metals seen at the x-ray. The inspection officer just smiled at me when he found a substantial number of gift items in my bag. The best ones are now on display in a cabinet in our living room while the rest were given to selected relatives/friends. I love seeing them donning/displaying the gifts I have had given as “pasalubong.”
