Traveling the Philippines

My sister told me about Bukisa and now I’m excited to try it.

I love traveling. I wanted to be able to travel my whole country, much simpler than wanting to travel the whole world. I also want to do that — travel the world. But I’m starting in my country. We have a saying, wag maging dayuhan sa sariling bayan, in English, don’t be a stranger is your own land.

Traveling the world educates the traveler about different cultures, races, languages, flora, fauna, arts, and a whole lot of different wonders. But I can learn some of that in my own country too, the Philippines, that has more than 7,000 islands, which probably means more than 7,000 beaches, more than 7,000 festivitals, more than 7,000 sunsets, dishes, arts, and a whole lot of different wonders too, I’m sure.

Have you heard about the best Lechon in the world, according to Anthony Bourdain? Have you seen the Mascara Festival? Have you been to Sagada? Try trekking the famous Ifugao Rice Terraces, and youi’ll be met by a big falls below.

Have you heard about our famous beaches like Boracay, Palawan, the Hundred Islands? How about Caramoan where a Survivor franchise shot an entire edition? Caramoan Peninsula has finer sands than Boracay, really.

How about a beautfiul beach that intersects a mini-river, with pine-like trees surrounding them? That beautiful beach is the Anawangin Cove. A cove that’s a result of a massive volcanic eruption of Mt. Pinatubo on 1991. And did you know that the Mt. Pinatubo’s scenery right now is equally amazing? And both are only in Luzon, in a small part of Zambales in particular, remember, there are 7,000 islands in the Philippines.

I think you should start packing your bags now. Do not forget your camera!
