Of Reflections, Rivers and Lakes: Philippine Travel Stories

There are places to commune with nature; we posted our Top 10 of these places. We also posted about the still life. There’s something else that we noticed with the VisitPinas-tagged photos in Instagram. A lot of reflections are done on rivers and lakes. We’re not really surprised, because a calm lake or river lacks the hyperactive edge of the beach and presents an added difficulty of trekking, just like mountaineering. Balance is what you’ll find.

The Beach from Up There: Philippine Travel Stories

We oftentimes fail to recognize something we know to be familiar, when viewed from a different angle. Same principle in solving problems, looking at it from outside the box. The Philippines, with its numerous world-class beaches, is a good place to test if you can still identify the location when viewed from a drone. Let’s see if you recognize these drone-captured, VisitPinas-tagged photographs in Instagram: Continue reading The Beach from Up There: Philippine Travel Stories

We Will Rock You: Philippine Travel Stories

We don’t get tired of talking about Philippine travel photos, especially the VisitPinas-tagged photos in Instagram. Whether we’re stuck in traffic or doing our daily ritual in the “throne room,” we scan the photos. It’s fun and, compared to, say, watching a movie or a concert, watching these photos is free. And these photos rock! Continue reading We Will Rock You: Philippine Travel Stories

Caught in Parallel Universe: Philippine Travel Stories

There ain’t no science here, said Sam Smith in his new song, Promises. We’re not really going to discuss the universe, much more the concept of parallel universe. We just need a short descriptive title about two lines, something we find in Philippine travel, running parallel to each other and framing the subject. We have a lot of VisitPinas-tagged photos in Instagram with that theme.  Continue reading Caught in Parallel Universe: Philippine Travel Stories

Enjoying the Best of Both Worlds: Philippine Travel Stories

We’ve been saying that the natural beauty of the Philippines makes us giddy, every time — a feeling, we’re sure, is shared by other wanderers. Some travelers prefer under water adventure, like diving, while other tourists don’t want to get their feet wet. In the Philippines, it hardly matters  which world you’re in — underwater or above ground — it’s equally beautiful, more beautiful if you can capture both worlds at the same time. Two worlds for the price of one. Sulit! Here are some VisitPinas-tagged photographs in Instagram to show why you can enjoy the best of both worlds during your Philippine vacation.  Continue reading Enjoying the Best of Both Worlds: Philippine Travel Stories

The Boatman in Paradise: Philippine Travel Stories

Boatman, noun, a person who rents out or works on boats. In the world of Philippine travel, a boatman can be anyone who has fun on a boat while exploring the archipelago’s beautiful wonders. The boatman, of course, can be male or female, or shades in between, but let’s just use boatman as a generic term. So, how fun is it to be a boatman in the Philippines? Here, let us show you through the VisitPinas-tagged photos in Instagram: Continue reading The Boatman in Paradise: Philippine Travel Stories

Pretty in Orange: Philippine Travel Stories

There’s something mesmerizing about orange or any its shades and related hues. Fiery and sexy, yet serene and wholesome at the same time. We’ve featured a lot of those hues, VisitPinas-tagged photos in Instagram. We’ve found a whole lot of those beautiful hues and it’s a sin not to feature the rest of those Philippine travel photos. So, here we go. Continue reading Pretty in Orange: Philippine Travel Stories

Climb Every Mountain: Philippine Travel Stories

Mountain climbing is fast becoming a favorite outdoor activity of Filipino travelers, so much so that we lost count of the mountaineering photos featured in VisitPinas. We can probably add more photos in the future but, for now, let’s check out the fun shots of how these trekkers seem to get there. Continue reading Climb Every Mountain: Philippine Travel Stories
