Cebu Pacific Smile

11. Get a photograph/ article published in a travel magazine. (Feb 2012)

A lot of you may know that we have been wishing hoping praying to get published in a travel magazine. So we put it up on our 30 before 30 list. We asked for a lot of advice and tips on how to sell your story to a publisher. We even begged a few friends to help us get our soles in the door of travel publications.

Cebu Pacific Smile

But life sometimes has a wicked sense of humor.

Just when we were about to give up on that dream, we get an email asking us to write an article for - ehem - Cebu Pacific Smile inflight magazine. To say we were elated would be an understatement. We screamed, bounced off walls and had a smile on our faces for weeks! That's how important it was to us.

And when the article was finally published, we couldn't believe our eyes. It was beautiful.

    Hi. I got the chance to read your article in Smile Magazine during my flight bound for Hong Kong via Cebu Pacific. Three words: I LOVE IT! Wish I could do just the same - travel, gain experiences and friends from across the world. :) I have my own list of to-do-stuff too and I hope I could also make them happen one by one. Anyway, keep travelling and stay beautiful! :p See you around.
