Island Travel Contests and Promos Announcement

Based on recent assessments of our current situation as a result of the incident in Quezon, we really cannot realistically proceed further north as planned and would likely spend much of the remaining vacation time in Laguna and perhaps in the Greater Metro Manila area. We think that the message of this unforeseen twist is “stay put and balance family commitments, travel and writing” in and around an area we’re already familiar with.

Therefore, we made the following decisions related to the contests and promos of our travel blog:
  1. Island Travel Promotional Video and Contest – We will proceed with this contest as originally announced. We have a good number of participants and we encourage further entries until the end of April. Three lucky entries based on a raffle draw will be proclaimed on May 1. Each would win MDPlus Golden Shield with SPF50. Click on the photo below to go to the youtube promotional video and share to friends via Facebook or to your blog readers via a post with the video embedded, notify us in the comment section and we shall confirm your entry (or entries) to this contest as soon as possible. By the way, you have to follow us via Google Connect, Facebook (NetworkedBlogs) or Twitter to be eligible to join.

  2. Island Travel Guess Where We Are Contest – We have posted two challenges, namely:

    (please click on photo to see specific blog posting/challenge and the corresponding guesses/entries submitted)

    While there are guesses that can be considered correct already, there’s still room for improvement…i.e. better, more accurate guesses. So we’re giving another week for more guesses from you, i.e. until April 26. Remember that you can have multiple entries as long as they are posted in separate days. Winners will be announced on April 27. Be sure you are an Island Travel follower in Networked Blogs, Facebook or Google Connect (or an email or RSS subscriber), which is the minimum requirement to join; then check our official announcement and direct communication to you.

    Because you already know that we are in and around Laguna and Greater Metro Manila area in the past as well as in the next few weeks, we will hold off any further Guess Where We Are Challenges until further notice.

  3. Island Travel Blog It Contest and Island Travel Blog That Photo Contest – Because of the changes in our travel plans and the minimal participation so far, we are suspending these two contests until further notice. We hope to relaunch them in the near future. Those who already participated will be notified that their entries will be considered valid entries when specific contest is relaunched.
We are hoping for your understanding about these changes. As much as we want to honor our commitment as originally announced, we need to be realistic and step back a bit so we can go forward again in the future.

We appreciate your concern and understanding of our current situation.

We remain,

Papa Sez and Mama Sez
