the origin of my travel tumbling shot!



looking through my travel tumbling shot collection, i couldn't help but wonder.. what was my very first tumbling shot and where did the idea come from?


i tried as hard as i could to recall in my head where it all began. no luck. i decided to go through all my travel photos one by one to get to the bottom of this mystery. and then, i found it.


apparently, it all began during a trip to sydney, australia in late 2007.


i was with my sister and it was both our first time to go to sydney. so of course we made like tourists and posed in every possible beautiful site and famous building!








this is me by the sydney harbour and opera house trying to do a "fun" pose to make a memorable picture. what am i even doing?! i look so awkward! hahaha!








this is me in an attempt to do a tuck jump shot by the jenolan caves, a two-hour drive from sydney. well, not bad. pwede na rin naman. ayusin ko lang yung facial expression ko, hahaha.








and then.. there it was.. i found a series of photos of me and my sister in front of the acer arena - where snow patrol played a few days after and my sister luckily got to watch while i went back home to manila! boo! - goofing around!!!! one of the shots were my sister and i doing patawa cartwheels and handstands!!!! so this is where it all began! and it makes perfect sense. my official travel tumbling shot collection began in 2008, and this is what gave me the idea to start it all!


so there lies the origin of my tumbling shot! so happy to have discovered how it came to be. :) and again, cheers to more tumbling shots around the world, hopefully!

Hi bianca! Sobrang unique ng idea mo na gawin yan everytime you travel. Unique na yung experience, pati yung photo unique pa. I know na siguro may mga kasabay kayo na ibang tourists or even locals at somehow ay tumatak sa isip nila na may mga "weird tourists" na gumawa non. haha sorry. :P

I envy you. Sana someday, I'd be able to see the world din. Sana after I graduate, I'd get a nice, LEGAL, and good paying job para makapagtravel ako. Ikaw inspiration ko. :)

Nice one! I have two tumbling shots influenced by you! It started this year, last june to be specific! Looking forward to have more in my future travels! Thanks for the inspiration, super B! ;-)

Sai Pauline said...

Nakakatuwa naman yung kwento! :) There are things talaga na may "origin" eh. Y'know, something you could look back to. And then when you remember it, you'll get so happy and contented.

As of now, wala pa akong signature travelling pose. Pero this coming Palawan getaway namin. I'll make sure, I will do a signature pose starting that tour. Haha! And it's all because of you! <33 You're my inspiration. I'll show the photos to you, of course! THANKS FOR BEING SUCH AN INSPIRATION! <3 I'll be waiting for more of your travel kwentos. ♥

Hi Bianca! Nice tumbling shot! Unfortunately for me, what I only do is jumpshot. Hahaha.. Maybe we can call it now "Bianca shot" since you are the only one I know who did that and how many shots to validate that. Maybe next time I will try a "Bianca shot" on one of my travels ---@sweetred13

Dearest babybee..

Yeah it’s you miss Bianca Gonzales. I would like to thank you kasi you and your blog was one-of-my-not- so-many-inspiration to come up with my own blog. I’m a writer by nature and by profession so blog was a must- just to release my writing skills which happen to be the one I breathe haha I look so many blogs before then I remember that you had a blog so I checked it out. Actually im planning to read all your blog entry yet as of now sept, oct, nov 2003 pa lang ang nababasa ko and its well 2011 now haha I just like to read all you blog entries and know you more through your own words.

This might be too much but you can check my blog if you want…ahm it’s not that beautiful. Cause I had a specific look here in my garage mind that I want my blog to look like but yes I admit it- I’m not an html person so someday I leave it to someone who can help me do it..that will happen I know for sure.

I hope someday too that I’m able to meet you and had a pic with you and your blog entries that I had it all in print.

I also love your tumbling shot and thankfully you explain the origin of it, thanks babybee!

Here’s my blog aissafontanilla21.tumblr.com..

Keep on posting cause I love your blog entries..

Xoxo..dark angel

Hi bianca!

just wondering if you saw the photo of a "tumbling kid" figurine I sent you on twitter? :)

saw it at the mall and immediately bought it so I can take a photo and send it to you. :) So cute!!! :)

I will keep it and i hope someday I can give it to you! :)

Hi Bianca, I've always wondered where your travel tumbling shots started. I love the idea because its like you're telling a story of your travels by cartwheeling around the world. Its so much fun to see :)

I am inspired with your tumbling shots. That is why, I also posted a lot of my Jump shots. Hope to be with you in a photo shoot. You doing a tumbling shot, and me doing my signature toe-touch.

You're not just Super Bianca! You're an Ultimate Super Woman. Keep inspiring new bloggers like me. Stay safe and God bless.
