This morning as I was lazily scrolling through my email, I
came across an email sent to me by Yamventures informing me about my first
blogger Recognition Award. You needed to see how the laziness did an Usain Bolt
and was quickly replaced by proactiveness.
What is a BLOGGER RECOGNITION AWARD?
How Did I Get The Award?
Yamventures; a platform where they discuss about their lives, opinions, travels
and tips. Yamventures also serves as a tour coordinator in Taiwan; they help
travelers arrange their trips to make the most of their Taiwan Journey. If you
