From Malapascua Island, I took a motorised boat going to Kalanggaman Island. It costed me P800 for the day trip inclusive of lunch at the island. Located South East of Malapascua Island, Kalanggaman is most famous for its photogenic long sand bar stretching at the end of the isle when the tides are low. Apart … More A Day Tour to Kalanggaman Island, Leyte, Philippines

“Music saves the soul.” Play it first. . 🙂 I’ve known Rachel to be a restless traveler who, like me, worships the beach while embraces the pricking rays of the sun as if this combo is the best thing God has ever created.

With 2 out of 6 of us having relatives in Bicol, we’ve always thought that this getaway will be so feasible. .

It was during the Christmas holidays a couple of years ago when I and my family had a vacation in Baguio City for almost a week. I think this is the very first family vacation I had that’s more than 3 hours-drive away from home. Haha. .
After the make-your-crotch-sweat trekking at Mount Pinatubo, the ladies including myself went to Olongapo to spend the night somewhere as we have a big beach adventure the next day (as they promised me, bwahaha!).
Hiking? No thanks. . I can still remember the muscle pain I got when I hiked Mount Manabu when I was still in college. Every step, I’ve been trying to catch my breath, it felt like it was yesterday. hehe. . So when this group of environmentalists from my alma mater, aka my LIT KALIKASAN family, … More Day Hike to Pinatubo Crater Lake in Zambales, Philipines

Iñaki: anywhere, i’ll handle all the expenses. call the HS rehab gang. Nice: woah, ok, i’ll plan. . Nurse Ira (to nice): you free this weekend? … More First-time Surfers @ La Union, Philippines
if you have spent most of your life in an urban community, then visiting Villa Escudero, approximately 2 hours from Manila (if the traffic jam gods are not against you. hehe. . :)), is a must. Showing off how rural lifestyle is what Villa Escudero all about.
the very reason of this unplanned beach trip last summer of 2010 is to spend quality t-i-m-e with him before his year long cruise in Europe (but dont expect you’ll see a photo of him here, haha!). We only had one weekend left that time so we target to hit the nearest non-commercialized beach from … More 1day Beach Hopping – Quezon Philippines
Vigan is one interesting place in the North. it makes me feel i live in a Philippine history book. .
it was summer of 2010 when i get to visit Ilocos Norte for the first time. . ~12 hours travel via commute route from Manila, Ilocos Norte is totally worth the numbing of your legs and butt. .
