One Year Blogiversary Giveaway!

As of last month, this travel blog officially turned one year old! Woohoo! 🎈🎉

If you didn't know, I started www.krystijaims.com in early 2016 as a lifestyle blog, but it wasn't until September that I decided to focus on travel (my true love) and relaunched it solely as a travel blog.

I have absolutely loved this past year, working hard towards building my dream career.
I was planning on doing this giveaway in September, but as I had only just returned home from travelling Southeast Asia for four months, I needed to sort my life out a bit first.

This is a just a small thank you to my readers who are a big part of this blog. Whether you read my posts or follow along on my journey via social media, I appreciate your support so very much.
