Bonjour Everyone! Hi I’m Jonin Marie A. Gargoles. Probably it’s time for me to talk about my real life story how I started being a Travel blogger. Today is my 1st Anniversary being a Travel Blogger (April 25,2016)
Once upon a time in the most beautiful and glamorous land there’s a princess called “Bep-Bep”. She was born to be cheerful, optimistic, glamorous, excellent & fantastic. She lived in a beautiful castle with her family in Victorias City. The name of the King is “Beltran Gargoles”, the Queen is “Ninfa Gargoles” and her eldest sister princess “Jenefa Mae Amor Gargoles”
Let’s talk about the childhood years of the princess. At the young aged of seven she started to write fictional novels in her royalty notebook. She never thought that she had a hidden talent in writing. For her at the young age when she got bored in the castle she’ll just write and write whatever pops out in her mind. It suddenly reminds her naive grammar when she was young. She laughed whenever she saw her old childish poetries & novels. During her elementary years she never goes out from her shell as a princess. She’s like a cute little tiny turtle loved to hide inside her shell. She can’t go out from her comfort zone. She’s actually a quiet kid and very shy to showcase her beautiful talents to others.
The king and queen decided to enroll her in a different summer classes yearly like “Ballet, Gymnastics, Jazz, Hawaiian Dance, Art Workshop, Guitar & Piano lesson. Through that she learned to develop her self esteem as a princess. Dancing was her first passion during her elementary years. She was an active member of “Gymnastics Club” in her school.
As the princes grew up she loved to travel different places around the world. The King & Queen were very supportive in her different wanderlust experiences. At the young aged of 9 years old, she was already a traveler she loved to explore and discover new places. When she was in Grade 3 she’s a Math Wizard Kid competing different Mathematics Contest like (Mathematics Trainers Guild Nationals) for National Level to represent her school (St. Mary Mazzarello School). She had witness the beautiful scenery of Tagaytay City with her innocent eyes. She traveled different beautiful places around Philippines by joining different contest. She went to Iloilo City, Subic City, Cebu City, Manila City & many more. She really loved Math because it gives her a great opportunity to travel different places. She’s been actively joining several contests to represent her school like in “Australian Mathematics Contest, Suduko Contest, Mathematics Olympiad, Mathematics Trainers Guild National, Regional Mathematics Contest, MTAP and many more.” She also represent her own country for the “World Youth Day 2011” in Madrid , Spain during her High School years.
