Filipinas Heritage Library: Travel Writing and Blogging Workshop by the Ayala Foundation


The Filipinas Heritage Library is conducting a Travel Writing and Blogging workshop    


Traveling is a way to open yourself up to the culture of the Philippines and the world. Travelers love to get together and share their experiences – the things they’ve seen, dishes they’ve eaten, people they’ve met. The sharing of experience has become faster, richer, and more accessible with the rise of online travel journals or blogs. Through them, we are able to discover new places at the click of a mouse. These travel pieces also help us prepare for our own journeys as we learn from those who went before us.






Join your fellow travel enthusiasts and view the historic churches of Manila! Be updated on some of the best online travel writing and learn how to create your own piece.
