The Feet of Summer: Philippines Travel Photos

Looking at the photos with our tag or with #visitpinas in Instagram, we noticed a pattern of feet as focus in various Philippine destinations. We’ve also noticed that all of these photos are from women. We don’t know why. Perhaps this is just an extension to women’s love for shoes. Yes, men also love sneakers, but that’s nothing compared to the relationship between women, shoes and bags. Let’s feature some of these feet that happily roamed the gorgeous islands of the Philippines. Continue reading The Feet of Summer: Philippines Travel Photos

Chasing the Kawasan Waterfalls (Badian, Cebu): Photo of the Day

Don’t go chasing waterfalls, goes a popular song. But you really don’t have to chase waterfalls — you simply jump from one. Around three hours south of Cebu City is the three-tiered Kawasan Falls, with its clear spring water forming part of the Matutinao River System. It’s found in Barangay Matutinao, municipality of Badian. Foreign and Filipino tourists love this ecotourism destination. One recent guest of the Philippines, the British visitor Lydia Garner (check her Instagram acount, @lydiagxx), lost no time testing her nerves by jumping off Kawasan Falls. See her photo below. By the way, expect a full trip when visiting Kawasan Falls. Beyond enjoying the waterfalls, another popular activity in this area is canyoneering upstream of the Kawasan Falls. The Osmeña Peak in the Badian Mountain Range, a popular trekking destination, is located nearby. Pescador Island, with its corals and marine life for divers, is found in the nearby town of Moalboal.

Photo of the Day: Kawasan Falls

We’ve seen a few waterfalls and we’ve heard about the Kawasan Falls in Cebu, but we haven’t seen a photograph like this one, courtesy of Michael Credo (check his Instagram account, @i_am_laagan for more photos). We’ve also seen tons of selfies, or groufies in this instance, but this one is not too obvious. We didn’t notice the selfie stick until later. It beautifully blends with the bamboo raft used to bring the guests under the waterfalls. Imagine that, the perfect water massage with your friends. And the fun thing about it? You really can’t tell anyone to soften the pressure or lower the volume of water. Either you make it or you don’t. This one is for hardcore wanderers, not for whiners. We’ve tried this crazy dare in Pagsanjan and we can say that it’s definitely not for the weak of heart and definitely not for those who have thin skin (or low pain threshold). It’s like a heard of cows, some small and some huge, happily stomping all over your back. It’s fun, really. So, next time you’re in Cebu, go find Kawasan Falls, try to get an awesome photo, and tag us so we can tell the world about it.
