Wandering Around

I want to explore the Philippines (as much as I can).

I am fond of reading travel blogs. Wandering and hoping I could set my foot in many destinations locally and in international.

Some of the blogs that caught my wandering mind:

The Poor Traveler

The Poor Traveler

Oh my gosh! This beautiful guys are “Oh so amazing!” I don’t know how would I introduce this guys to you (or maybe how to flatter them if they’ll be able to read this).

I stumbled with their blog the first time I search for travel blogs. And I may say, they chose the perfect name for their blog. It is so inspiring to read how they manage to travel around the Philippines and around the World! As what they said, We’re not built to travel  and Travel was not for us, it is exactly the words I often speak in my wandering mind. Luckily this two guys destined to inspire others like me. And I’ve got strong emotions attached with Kuya Yoshke and Kuya Vins stories that I can do it too… Travel with all cost and enjoying one’s self.

He was the one who taught me to aim to reach the peak of your dreams or rather see the Philippines in a different view, up way there. Kuya Gideon or the taong-bundok (as I call him when I read his blogs), classified mountains in the Philippines based on how difficult it would be. And it becomes my game changer on how to choose which mountain should I trek. I also loved his recommended treks. It helps a lot!

Bilib na bilib ako with Kuya Ivan because he is around my age. And he has been to 35 provinces and set foot on 45 summits. ’twas truly brilliant with his age! I love how he makes the climbing itineraries and how he budget his treks. It helps a lot!

And yes! I follow two trekkers. I correlate their blogs often.



The Pinay Solo Backpacker

She is one hell of a girl! She rocks! Ate Gael is one of the girls who inspires me to travel a lot and gain experiences that no one can buy. She has been to all 81 provinces here in the Philippines as well as to our neighboring countries like Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Cambodia, Vietnam and Hongkong.



Pinoy Adventurista

I get the idea of challenging myself to travel around the Philippines from him. He challenge his self to visit two-thirds of the provinces here in the Philippines before he reach the age of 35 and visit all the 81 provinces before he turns 80. Kuya Mervz is as daring as he is. He really did dare me to many stuff that I hope I’ll be able to do in the near future.


Someday, I do really hope I could set my foot wherever I wanted to. Just like them.

And that someday will be very soon. HAHA I hope so.
