Flashback Friday: A-Z

Greetings my beloved fellow bloggers! You are cordially invited to …

Participate to a one-time challenge post – Flashback Friday Challenge.😀

What is Flashback Friday? You might ask. Well, you can click my bar titled – Flashback Friday. Most of my Flashback Friday posts are successful. It’s my way to look back at my travel destinations. I get to revisit places I’ve been to. I get to redo my old blog posts and compose them in a different approach i.e. providing more pictures, expanding an old post, talk more about it, etc.That’s exactly what I want you to do. Look back a travel destination you’ve been to, or you blogged before, and find different approach, areas or ways to (re)compose it.

You have from now to the second week of January to compose a Flashback Post to your blog. I will make a post featuring Flashback Friday submissions on the second friday of January. You can link your submissions here on this post.

One of the different approaches I got is using other challenges. I have used Aisa’s Travel Theme Challenge, Jake’s Sunday Post and Weekly Photo Challenge in the past.

You can blog your own Flashback Friday however you want it. Right now, I’m using Frizztext’s A-Z Challenge for my Flashback Friday.


Point at a picture and you will see a caption. If you are interested or have a question about any of these photos, just ask away. As always, don’t be shy to say hi.😀

    Great challenge, something to work on🙂

    • rommel says:

      Well,hey there. You’re participating!? How cool! It’s about a month from now. You can look at my previous Flashback Friday posts for examples. Hope you do make one. Just link it here after you’re done.

      where is the location on the beach of te picture of the first flasback friday? Looks awesome!

  2. Great Captures – love the little kid with the sled:) Happy Friday!

  3. Love the pic taken in Baguio. I have such fun memories from there!

  4. So we are to come up with 26 photos (one for each letter of the alphabet) highlighting our travels and post it here the second week of January?

    • rommel says:

      Oh No. Blog however you like. Flashback Friday is basically any ONE travel destination you’ve been to that you want to revisit, maybe recompose an old blogpost or completely start a whole new one. Maybe a travel place you’ve been to but haven’t talked about it yet.

      Don’t mind the A-Zchallenge.

      You post it in your blog. Then link it here.

    Flashback Friday Challenge is a cool idea! Lingering visions had a good question.

  6. Angelia Sims says:

    Wow! Bravo! A-Z travel spots! That collage is sooo cool. Not sure if I can name A-Z travel destinations. Something to ponder on my way to Hot Springs tomorrow (H!). And of course, I’ll join your flashy challenge next month……if I don’t forget.🙂

  7. adinparadise says:

  8. mrsbearfoot says:

  12. Debra Kolkka says:

    Great pictures as usual Rommel….love the fountain.

  13. I have nominated you with the Very Inspiring Blogger Award….I hope that you will accept – I truly enjoy visiting your blogsite Please refer to:

  14. You’ve been a lot of places. I enjoyed the pictures🙂

  15. tchistorygal says:

    Rommel, You have been to some amazing places. I’ll participate. This will give me the kick I need to digitize some of my old photos to interesting places as well. Your post is amazing to see all the wonderful places, and the quality of your pictures. I loved the astronomical clock and La Giralda the very best, Pompeii, the aquaduct, the castle. OH so many. Thanks for the inspiration. 🙂 Marsha🙂

  16. LuAnn says:

    Fabulous gallery of photos Rommel. I will have to give this Challenge some consideration.🙂

    • rommel says:

      Okay, I look at my own Settings. Go to Settings – Media – check/click on the box that says Tiled Gallery.

      If this works for you, you gonna have to do the challenge and not just consider it. Hehe😀

      By the way, I believe that if you do this, it will turn ALL your galleries from all your posts into a collage type.

  17. eof737 says:

    You have many amazing photos… I love the omelette. Great concept.😉

  18. Sony Fugaban says:

    Sounds really inviting Rom. I’ll do what I can to squeeze that in…

  19. cocoaupnorth says:

  34. Paula says:

    2012 looked spectacular … I bet 2013 will look even better🙂 My best wishes to you Rommel!

    • rommel says:

      Hi Paula, I remember seeing a comment about my A. Hehehehe. I actually realized it minutes after I published the post. Yes, my picture of A is not Arancini. It is called Piadina. Not A but P. Glad someone picked up from it. I just decided to let it go because I don’t want to ruin the collage. Hehehehehe.
      Thanks for all the support, Paula.

  35. tchistorygal says:
