    Spring Break In The Philippines Taal Volcano And Tiny Horses

    Recently my daughter and I flew to Manila  to meet up with my husband, Chris.  He was there on an all too frequent business trip and my daughter was on spring break.  Seemed like a good way to burn some airline miles!

    After a 26 hour journey, we arrived on a Wednesday night and dragged our tired bodies to our hotel in Alabang, which is an area south of Manila.

    Nature Calls Hidden Taal

    For many tourists the once saltwater Taal Lake can be most conveniently seen from far Tagaytay ridge. But there is also its less seen, less traveled side.

    Most famous for its volcano, reportedly one of the "smallest" in the world, the caldera has about 42 known craters, including a huge submerged one and the main crater containing the "lake within a lake". Until the 1700s, the Pansipit River, which connects the lake to Balayan Bay, was deep enough to enable Chinese trading ships to navigate from one to the other. A series of volcanic eruptions culminating in 1764 severely constricted the br ...
