One kid, six countries, eight years, and still travel blogging (or not).

As you may have probably noticed, I haven’t written anything for the past months. I thought quitting my day job for nine years would let me become the full-time stay-at-home mom, virtual assistant, and travel blogger that I’ve always dreamt of, but it wasn’t the case. Juggling motherhood, three jobs (oh yes, I am a sucker for earning), and starting my own VA company all at the same time without a housekeeper and/or a nanny has been quite a challenge for me.

That said, I haven’t find the time to share a photo essay let alone write something sensible. I know I should be blogging about all these because the way we travel now that we have a baby is completely different with how we travel in the past, and that I could share potential useful tips, but I just couldn’t. It’s difficult to do all that with my current lifestyle.

BUUUT, I still haven’t forgotten that my blog is 8 years old now. Yey! Not the domain name per se as I’ve gone through a few changes last year, but Miss Backpacker has been on the internet since July 2009. And as my way of celebrating and thanking those who have been following me and my growing family’s adventures, I’d be giving away one 18L Waterproof Folding Bag and one Ultralight TPU Inflatable Neck Pillow from Naturehike, both of which I got from Yabkal (Lakbay spelled backwards) Outdoor Shop.

To make this even better, Yabkal Outdoor Shop owner Dan decides to join in the fun by throwing a few more storage bags for another winner! Yipee! One 38L Packable Duffel Bag and two Waterproof Ultralight Mini Toiletry Bags are up for grabs for free if you win the second electronic raffle!
