    Discover The Undiscovered In Quirino

    Prior to my trip to Quirino, I have yet to hear anything about this land-locked province next to Aurora. Not a word, all I saw were photos. As the cliché goes, pictures paint a thousand words, but those words seem hollow, they had no experiences, no meaning.

    Other than a friend I invited, I was traveling with complete strangers. I kept an open mind, as my adventurous side got the best of me; besides, where's the fun in exploring a place you have not been to with a fixed itinerary and with people you already know?

    Getting lost is part of the discovery

    There is an element of surprise t ...

    Water Tubing In Siitan River

    This was our text exchange, a few days before Quirino trip.

    Me: Okay.Do you want to do it?
    Friend: Yes!
    Me: Okay, if you're up for it, I'm on it! (I replied without hesitation)

    Water tubing is an exciting activity wherein you ride on top of a tube on flowing water.

    I didn't try to Google it. I didn't even thought about it that night. I set my mind not to expect anything from this trip because it had been weird communi ...

    Travel With Friends Siitan River Quirino Province

    So have you heard? There's this paradise in the North between Isabela and Nueva Vizcaya called Quirino. The peaceful land is also between the border of Aurora where the famous Baler is.

    There's one river that their tourism department have been implementing; the Siitan River in one of its first class municipality, the Municipality of Nagtipunan.

    If you're into seeking peace with nature then I recommend this place! It's secluded, very poor phone signal, not a lot of tourist go here [yet], and the water is assuringly fresh!

    When you get there, there's this nipa hut where the guides are w ...
