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.

Boac Church of Marinduque: Philippine Travel Stories

The town of Boac, province of Marinduque, is well-known for the Moriones Festival. It’s also the site of the Boac Church (Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception), although the marker on the church indicates that the cathedral was dedicated to the “Mother of Instant Mercy” (Pronto Socorro). The cross was brought to Marinduque in 1579, way before the construction of the cathedral in 1792. The Diocese of Boac was created in 1978.

The Philippines is an archipelago consisting of 7,000+ islands. The primary mode of transportation between islands is the boat.

5 Traits of a Traveler: Philippine Travel Stories

A traveler, by definition, is a person who moves around from place to place. A wanderer, on the other hand, is a traveler who wanders aimlessly. Beyond these definitions, we go by what Gandalf said, that “not all those who wander are lost.” For those who seek travel with a purpose — regardless of whether the purpose is with the act of traveling itself, or of the destination, or of both the journey and the destination — traveling, or wandering, requires a set of emotional, mental and physical skill sets. Let’s tackle five of those. Continue reading 5 Traits of a Traveler: Philippine Travel Stories

The Brotherhood of the Traveling Abs: Philippine Travel Stories

Because we’ve featured women and the sleepy bikini, and because we want to be fair, we’ve decided to showcase the Philippine travel sites through the eyes, or lens, or contour, of the men’s abs. We’re not exactly looking for a six-pack, although we certainly won’t mind featuring one, but let’s just say we’ll have the proud dad-bods in a separate post (our crew will be the first to submit their photos for the dad-bods). For now, let’s have the VisitPinas-tagged traveling abs in Instagram. Continue reading The Brotherhood of the Traveling Abs: Philippine Travel Stories
