    I guess I have 1,000+ things to experience yet. Having stepped on all the 80 provinces of the Philippines is no joke and as I continue to travel and read travel blogs, I keep on adding on my list of things I want to do or experience.

    One of them, climb Taraw Cliff in El Nido.

    "Taraw" is a Cuyunon (Palawan's dialect) word for mountains. These "taraws" you see in El Nido are actually limestone karst, inside those you find the ingredient or the most expensive food in the world- Nido Soup or locally known as "Balinsasayaw."

    Anyway, let's go to the main business.
