Dark clouds were approaching when I stepped out of the Basco airport. It turned windy, which made me wondered if October was the wrong time (of the year) to visit Batanes. It turned out to be the opposite, when I was admiring the lighthouse moments later. In front of Basco’s iconic landmark was a panorama that seemed to be taken from a page of...

Country Travels: My Love For Desert Islands
Read more

My dream job was to be an adventurer. I was once a contributor, which was the closest thing. I got a chance to visit some desert islands, which was what I liked most (about my work). Whenever I saw a powdery coastline, I thought I was Arkady Fielder (in Speedo). I visited Cantilan, a municipality in the northern part of Surigao del Sur, many...

My Life In Travel

Mar 16, 2013 by

First holiday memory? Tagaytay sans the establishments. Taal Volcano was eye candy from any point in the ridge. Favorite place in the Philippines? White beach (or sandbar). For some reason, I have a soft spot for coastlines facing the Pacific Ocean. Maybe it’s the azure water. Best holiday? Iligan City, Lanao del Norte. The vicinity has twenty-plus waterfalls. I don’t know if there is...
