If ever I would have blog envy that would definitely be for Eskapo.
The man behind this amazing travel blog is Dong Ho.
I have taken great trips in the past five years but Dong’s adventures are really something else.
For one, he focuses on domestic travels. It is truly admirable to be able to promote local tourism and have tons of fun in the process.
Oh, did I mention Dong takes awesome photos? Visit his blog and see for yourself.
I've never met Dennis yet. There's this funny feeling that I don't believe that the person behind blogs and online forums exist, who you just communicate online, until I meet him/her in person.
But out of the five years that we have been connected through the world wide web, if I am to describe Dennis, he is a person who loves Janet Jackson, has a Calvin Klein kikay kit and lives in Malibay. We know him as Raft3r over his real identity Dennis.
Years back, when I started to document my travels online. It was also the same year when I got connected with Raft3r through the small and thriving blogging community. Those times, where the way you count the number of readers was through the number of comments in your blog posts. No matter what you say, it was just a way of saying that we're reading your blog. And the way to acknowledge it was to visit their blogs in return. So the same people on that network would blog hop each other’s blogs.
Among Raft3r's most memorable posts apart from Janet, Calvin and Malibay, we will never forget the posts about his lost car. It came to the point that I actually thought I had the chance to ride it. From emotional to annoying police conversation and even the funny experience with his father's car (if I remember it right).
Other things I'll never forget:
The trauma of missing something after the trip.
He is a lechon connoisseur. After tasting the lechon in Tacloban.
Believes curry is everywhere in Kuala Lumpur.
That changing a planned trip from Baguio to Bohol will be similar because they both start with "B."
And the epic Lost and Found post.
We will miss this blog. And until it remains online, we will know you as Raft3r more than Dennis.
Here to cheer,
