Blog Birthday Post: Deplaned In Fifteen (15) of the Top 20 Busiest Airports!

by: Mhe-anne L. Ojeda

"My Comings and Goings" blog is three years old today. Yipee!! I can't believe how time flies! From being an online version of my journal (which I have been keeping since 1987), it evolves into a travel blog when I joined the Pinoy Travel Bloggers (PTB) sometime in April of this year.

As a travel blog, it has now 40 followers, 18,589 page views, 450 published posts and a three (3) month worth of backlogs! (haha). My PTB family has fueled my passion for traveling and blogging through their interesting blogs.(Thanks to You!!)Now, I am really pumped up with traveling and checking off some bucket lists!
(inside the Changi Singapore Airport)

So, as and by way of a mini celebration (from a mini princess!), I write about the most important element of my traveling - the airports! (Click for my In Flight Series!)

Recently I saw About.Com's List of Twenty Busiest Airports In The World based on the data from the Airports Council International. It excites me to know that I have enplaned and deplaned (but not slept) in the fifteen (15) of the 20 busiest airports since I started traveling in 2000.
