Catanduanes was captivating. I got to appreciate the simpler, fresher and cleaner provincial life. I also got to be awed by its wonderful scenery. Though I was only able to visit a few attraction, they do have it all from waterfalls, large greenery along the coast lines, fine white sand beaches and a whole lot more.
I rarely do travel blogs now because a lot of my travels now are linked to my fitness activities. I spent the full weekend supporting a friend's event for the very first Isla Catanduanes Ultra Marathon. I was impressed by what Catanduanes has to offer. I got to ...
