A good day to find peace in Sulu. Despite all the warnings and fake news that the place isn’t safe for a tourist nor a traveler, I got myself stuck in Jolo. Not just to tick off another province of the PH81, but to learn some of the cultures and practices in Mindanao. I never bothered walking under the sun while roaming around the town because there were so many things that were new to me, like their story, language, the food, and religious practices. To be honest, spending a day in Jolo will never be enough because there’s still a lot of stuff to learn and places to visit. I will surely come back for more stories, and unlimited laughter along with my newly found brothers. Continue reading “Sulu”

Now let me share our one-day itinerary and expenses. Continue reading “Isabela, Basilan”
As kids, we were often asked by our parents about the places where we wanted to go. We never thought about how much it cost them or how hard they prepared for our dream vacation. Then we became adults, we realize it’s actually hard finding a place where we can have the most comfort without spending too much. But, when we get a job where field work is a duty to accomplish, a huge window of opportunity may come with the brightest of colors. This is what happened to me and my colleagues during our weekends at Bicol Region where we were tasked to implement our project.
The home of Pili Nuts and Spicy delicacies, Bicol is one of the best destinations in the Philippines where a traveler may enjoy most of what could be found in the country. Hospitable people, sweet treats, the best dishes, beaches, falls, and mountains. Continue reading “WorkGoals Series: Bicol”
Last year I narrated my stories about enjoying work while traveling. I had an opportunity to go to more than five provinces in less than three months. This time, I am more than excited to tell you the places I visited while at work from January to June of 2018. In the course of six months, I have traveled far and wide to carry out our automated system for our branch offices. But, of course, I am not gonna tell you about that. This is about my adventure with nature, what my eyes saw, the air I breathe, the foods I gobbled, and the cry of peace behind the outskirts of the cities. Continue reading “WorkGoals Series: Davao”
Sunny and rainy. The only two seasons in the Philippines. It makes our country warm even when the days are cold. Sure we had our own share of tropical monsoons, but nature sits still as the days of hard wind pass by.
The rainy season officially starts in the second semester every year, and this is the reason the amazing authors of this awesome blog collaborated to show their six-month travel collection of spectacular sunsets around the Philippines before the gray clouds cover the spotlight. Each one had their own personal travels from January to June of 2018 and they have decided to share the colors of warmth, relaxing orange skies, chilling sea breeze, and the vanishing of light across the horizon. Let us take you to different places in the country with our collection of stunning sunset photos. Continue reading “Stunning Sunsets: Philippines”
