It’s exciting to see when tourism boards have actual plans and execute them so excellently well. Kerala blog express is on their 5th edition and this great opportunity is open to travel bloggers, vloggers and photographers from all over the world. The first time we heard of it was two years ago and we made an attempt to apply. We didn’t even go through the first stage. Welp! The opportunity is open again and it will be exciting to see a Nigerian travel blogger/vlogger(s) make the cut!
