When In Baguio…: Tree Top Adventure Baguio at Camp John Hay

It’s been several days since my SoKor2017 adventure wrapped up, and I still feel like it has been a whirlwind of a week. Which it was. One heck of a fun whirlwind. I still haven’t touched the folder where I saved all the photos and videos I took during that trip, knowing I’m in for quite a challenge. A fun one, I hope. Before all that, however, let me talk about another fun day spent right in my own backyard: when we tried out the Tree Top Adventure at Camp John Hay. Good timing, too, since Baguio City is in the thick of its charter anniversary month this September. Read more

Down South: The Sto. Nino Cold Springs of Camiguin

Annyeong~!! If you’ve seen my IG feed, you’d know what I’ve been up to these past few days. It’s still the tail-end of summer here in South Korea, which means except for the occasional showers, it’s hella hot. I sweat a lot, so I am feeling the heat even more. At times like these, there’s nothing I’d want more than to plunge into a cold springs, which is exactly what I am reminiscing in this post, during our visit to the Sto. Nino Cold Springs in Camiguin.

Down South: Walkway to the Old Volcano, Camiguin

As we speak, I’m off to another adventure several months in the making. But the good thing about travelling is how the memory always seems to be fresh, even months after it has wrapped up. Our trip to Camiguin was more than a few months ago, but I could not help but look back at every detail with fondness. Good thing we have photos, eh? It makes for better distillation of those memories, so to speak. Read more

Why You Should Visit Masungi Georeserve in Rizal

We all have different reasons for visiting new places. The first, obviously, is to satisfy our curiosity about that place. Another is to satisfy that perennial itch on your feet to be constantly on the move, preferably stepping on unfamiliar ground. Another, still, is to increase your know-how about that place, and the world, in general, seeing as travel is something that “enriches” you and makes you wealthier, “experience-wise”. Of course, recently, some people do it for bragging rights, and to make their Instagram feeds. Let me add another one: to celebrateAnd that’s exactly what we did during our memorable visit to the Masungi Georeserve in Baras, Rizal.

Mt. Binacayan of Rodriguez, Rizal: My Year-end Climb

It hasn’t been that long since the Rooster crowed and the new year began, but I bet some of you are still remembering some of the good (and not-so-good) things that happened in 2016. See, I think that’s one of the great things about going out and experiencing things: you get to reminisce them later on, and you get to still feel grateful, no matter how crappy the rest of the year was. It’s the rule on offset at work. Oh, and Happy New Year.  Read more

My Mayon ATV Adventure (and a Zipline!) at Cagsawa in Albay

I can’t believe we’re halfway through October already. Several more winks and it’ll be 2017! (I totally sped past December and Christmas and, yes, I intended to do that.) Time moves so fast it’s giving me whiplash, and I am just a bit worried that work will be too busy for the remaining 2 months that 2016 will end with… a whimper. Can’t help but feel like that, considering how ‘quiet’ and ‘calm’ the last half of this year has gone for me… and how hectic and eventful the first half was. 4 hours spent on an ATV, getting the closest I will probably ever get to Mt. Mayon, and then capping it off with a zipline ride? What else could top THAT when you’re in Cagsawa? Read more
