Merrell Went Out of the Box with a Travel + Storytelling Workshop!


Talk about travel and adventure goals! Global outdoor brand, Merrell, hosted Out of the Box, a travel storytelling workshop on blogging and photography for adventure enthusiasts at the Acuaverde Beach Resort in Batangas last April 24.

Storytellers were chosen through a contest that ran until April 22. These participants got a chance to learn about creating one’s personal branding and finding one’s purpose in blogging through Create and wander with Lucky So Alabado, founder of DiscoverMNL. As an added bonus, they also learned the art of flatlay photography during the set where participants learned the ropes on composition, lighting, and other tricks on how to capture amazing flatlays.
