Ever since I started blogging and being active on social media, I’ve met some wonderful people. With most, it’s a virtual friendship: I read and comment on their blog posts, they do the same with mine, we talk via Twitter and Facebook.
A while ago I was on Facebook when I saw that Tita Buds had posted a photo from Dallas. Wait a minute! She lives in the Philippines, is she in Dallas now!? Indeed. She was visiting one of her sisters, who happens to live not fifteen minutes away from my house. Small world, eh?
It was meant to be because I arrived in Dallas the day before and we were both leaving the city the day after! (Tita Buds was still travelling at the time of writing)
We arranged to meet at my local Starbucks. We had a good chat about travel and ourselves. Tita Buds is a lovely woman with a great heart and very open minded. We talked about the places we visited, our families and our cultures. Although we’re from hugely different countries, the Philippines and Argentina, we found some shared values.
Tita said she used my blog to find places to visit in Dallas, some that even her sister hadn’t been to. Glad you found this useful!
It was a rare opportunity to meet in the real world someone I already knew from the virtual world. Talk about worlds colliding!
Head on to Tita Buds blog and have a look. She’ll open the doors to a new world.
