Travel & Culture

Explore Philippines

I have so many places in the Philippines that I want to explore. When I was younger and single, I used to be spontaneous and adventurous.  I like to travel to places especially those kind of trips that I will be in touch with nature.  Kayaking, boating mountain climbing, trekking, and horseback riding are a few of my favorite things to do.

When I say I am spontaneous I mean it, imagine I climb, trekked, horseback  in and around Bathala Cave in Marinduque, Mayon Volcano in Bicol , Mt. Bulusan also in Bicol, and Taal Volcano in Batangas without wearing any proper climbing gear.  All I have are improvised stuff.

Some of my friends have turned into real enthusiast and took the hobby seriously so they joined mountaineering clubs.  When they plan for a trip they definitely make sure they have all the Mountain Hardwear they need from harness, ropes, belts, sleeping bags and more.  All these stuff are packed in their 5-8 kilo mountaineering backpack from North Face.

I bought a mountaineering backpack before because I was preparing for a long trip in the mountains to meet some NPA for my special project, I can’t even lift the thing without any help from anyone! Good thing the trip was canceled because when they did a background investigation they found out I have a ranking military official as a first cousin. They didn’t allow me to pursue the trip on fears of having me kidnapped or me leading the military to their base, which is reasonable enough.

I miss my travel adventures.  The last adventure I had was that of the Island Cove.  I wish to go back in Palawan and explore Underground River in Puerto Princesa Palawan some more, the 45 minute boatride inside the cave was amazing.  I also want to see the beautiful Batanes, I was told that a 5 day trip package cost about P22,000 only and that includes airfare and hotel.  Not bad!  I got to save some money now to get there. Anawangin in Zambales is the closest place for me to explore too and see those lovely light houses. A DIY trip overnight here won’t cost you more than P500.  I would like to see Vigan and the amazing beach they have with those wonderful windmills!
