PHILIPPINES: Best Travel Destination in 2018 Thu, 04 Jan 2018 07:48:40 +0000

Go to places and see amazing things you have never seen before. Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.  Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.  Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”

cazaroro-fallsTravel to re-energize. Unwind, recharge, relax.  Explore and experience the Philippines. Be amazed by the natural beauty of the rivers, lakes, woods and fields, some of the fascinating waterfalls, mountains, seas, and the gorgeous shorelines.  These are excellent schoolmasters and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from the books.  See you! 😉

The Best of the Philippines Fri, 28 Apr 2017 06:59:51 +0000 Travel. If you just did, then pack your things and just travel again. It’s the best therapy for the sad, stressed, overworked, and lonely. It’s also the best reward for the hardworking, open-minded, assertive, enthusiastic, happy, ‘not-so-olds & youngs’ at heart, and the adventurous ones.
See the very friendly, fascinating beauty and mesmerizing country-sides of this pearl of the oriental seas. Explore the Philippines in style.Ma. Cristina Falls Iligan City
