  • Donsol 2017 On The Trail Of Whale Sharks

    Like many divers, I have been on the trail of whale sharks. From Malapascua to Ticao Island, Apo Reef (Occidental Mindoro) and Sogod Bay, I took Travel Dive Connect where there was the possibility of a whale shark encounter in the wild. I had imagined such encounter to be one of those gasp-inducing wow moments. And, true enough, it was.

    Donsol 2017 – which I now call "my best dive trip, so far" – was my lucky turn, a first encounter with whale sharks that's also a bitter-sweet glimpse of an idyllic municipality built around ecotourism.

    Donsol, Sorsogon, dubbed as a "prime example of ...

  • Juag Lagoon A Private Marine Sanctuary

    Our main reason for visiting Matnog – the town on the southernmost edge of the Bicol mainland in the province of Sorsogon – was to see the pinkish white sand beaches of Subic (in Calintaan Island) and Tikling Island. To get to these beaches we rented a boat at the pier in Matnog and soon learned that a private marine sanctuary in Juag Lagoon was included in the itinerary. But because the beaches were our primary destinations we considered the sanctuary a mere afterthought. We were soon to discover how wrong we were.

    We decided to head out to Juag Lagoon first before hitting Subic Beach ...

  • Overnight Stay In Sorsogon A Promising Ecotourism Destination In The Philippines

    What do I know about Sorsogon? Prior to this trip, I knew that this is the home province of Sen. Chiz Escudero and his lovely wife Heart Evangelista promotes it actively on social media. The whale sharks of Donsol was featured in a Cinemalaya film years ago. Itis also the birthplace of two of my favorite blogging sisters Just Wandering and The Pinay Solo Backpacker. What else?

    Nothing much.

    When I signed up for the Bicol Express Fam Trip during TBEX Asia 2016, I took it as a chance to visit the region I've never been to. Grab lang!

    We were all exhausted fro ...
