PH: Kalanggaman Island

JUNE 25-27, 2017 Our first local trip together – me and my best friend, K! Our main mission was to visit Kalanggaman Island in Leyte… so we first took a plane going to Tacloban. Then from Tacloban, we rode a van for 4 hours to get to Palompon. Palompon is a small town and less …

Mount Pulag

JANUARY 21-22, 2017 DIFFICULTY LEVEL (according to TA site): 4/10 Last December, Tin and I spontaneously booked a hike in Mt. Pulag (via Ambangeg) with Trail Adventours.

Ilocos Norte (Burgos, Bangui, Pagudpud)

So after a month hiatus, I’m back blogging! I am really excited to share the vacation trip I had with my family this weekend but I actually don’t know where to start. I guess I’ll start with telling where we went… Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur! There were eleven of us (plus a one-year old …
