Found time at last! Wow Philippines!

Whew! After a long "hibernation" - I've been too busy with my other full time work - I have found time to at least update this blog of mine.

During these last 3 days, I was assisting the Philippine Department of Tourism Attachè in Paris and PICC Manager (Robet Garcia) in their daily dealings with potential tourism clients in EIBTM fair in Barcelona. It was a big event for me to be able to participate in this "promotion" of our country to the world especially the Europeans. It's about time that we become "aggressive" in our publicity of the Philippines. I've learned a lot from the presentations done by Mr. Domingo Ramón Enerio a.k.a Chikoy. Visitors as well as delegates from other countries praised the booth we set up - the Boracay white sandy beach as a backdrop. It was a pity that nobody from the private sector came to this international happening. The interpretation/translation task I did here was almost nil since everyone spoke English. My wish is that they open a Tourism Bureau also in Barcelona to help boost the promotion and marketing of Philippine tourism in Spain.

It was so nice to meet and make friends with other Filipinos living in Norway, the USA and Belgium. I am looking forward to seeing them again here in Barcelona for the next EIBTM fair or even sooner.
