Surviving Caramoan

Island hopping is one the many things you can do in the Philippines because we live in an archipelago with almost 7,107 majestically beautiful islands. But this particular experience we've done is different for it was already featured many times in a hit reality TV show - Survivors.

These islands are scattered in the lower eastern part of Camarines Sur. With its lush green mountains, huge rock formations, crystal clear water and powdery white sands, it is indeed one of the unexploited tourist destinations we have. 

Unfortunately, the weather was quite bad when we visited the islands of Caramoan. It was raining most of the time that's why I wasn't able to take more pictures to depict the beauty of these islands. It is my wish to be here again.

Discovering Catanduanes

Travelling is one of the things we all should do. To relax and unwind, to forget the busy life in the city is a must for us to reconnect to ourselves and recharge. Seeing the beauty of nature is one of the things that makes us feel good.

Catanduanes in the Bicol Region is a perfect place. Without a doubt, with its vast green mountainous scenery and with the calm water of the sea, it will definitely make you breathe out the hassle and dazzle life with have here in Manila. It's like going back to basics.

Puerto Princesa, Palawan: A Nature's Haven: PPUR: The Wonder of Nature(Part 3 of 3)

The last installment of the long overdue series has finally came and now ready to be read and shared!

Palawan is really my dream destination! My eagerness to travel and explore Palawan burst when the campaign for the New 7 Wonders of Nature came to full swing. As a teacher and a Filipino, i personally campaigned for PPUR to my friends and students.

Exploring the wonder of nature was of the reasons why I love Palawan and when the chance knocked , my friends and I didn't have any second thought. April 18, 2012 was the  day. We woke up as early as 5:00 AM to prepare and had breakfast at our hotel. From where we stayed, it was a two-hour drive to the wharf, which is Sabang beach.

Puerto Princesa, Palawan: A Nature's Haven (Part 1 of 3)

Going to Palawan was just one of my dream destinations, it finally came true when my friend told me about a promo trip to Puerto Princesa, Palawan.

Booked last April 16-18, 2012, we were able to explore some of the tourist spots in the so-called "The Last Frontier of the Country". This blogpost will be featured in a series for each of the destination we travelled on.

First of this series is our Honda bay Island Hopping Tour. Thirty minutes away from where we stayed is the wharf that will lead you to the islands in Honda Bay (pronounced as "Onda" according to our guide, Kuya Omar, which means wave, deep).

This is a part of the wharf that will bring you to the islands in Honda Bay.
