Laguna : Weekend Camping at Caliraya Lake

The Serene Caliraya Lake

I was given the task of organizing a camping trip for the all-boys Legal Team of our Company. Sure, I was known in the group as the backpack traveler so they relied heavily on me to deliver a fun-filled camping weekend. 

If it is with my regular camping buddies, I wouldn't have much problems cause Dong Ho would have probably laid down the itinerary and Lantaw and Erick would have brought all the camping gears we need. And of course, Ferdz and Oggie would have supplied all the needed contingencies and what-to-dos.

Selfie Sunday : Claire of First Time Travels

Our featured travel blogger this Sunday is an advocate, a PR practitioner, a postcrosser and a Wikipedian all rolled into one. 

Claire Algarme or simply Claire lives in the Philippines and loves to travel within the country and outside of it. The traveling bug bit her while she was still a kid, as she was always spending school breaks going for a vacation with her relatives. But the itch became more insistent when she worked for an international non-profit and had the opportunity to go to various countries.

Viet Nam : Cu Chi Underground Tunnel

A Lady Trying to Fit in a Tight Hole

I first learned of VietNam's Underground Tunnels during my teen-age years. I remember that I have been told that the Americans lost the war in Saigon because of the crafty and ingenious battling techniques of the Vietnamese soldiers. While the mighty Americans were loaded with battle gears and ammunition, the Vietnamese has their impossible terrain, man-made booby traps and the protection of a series of holes and tunnels that made up the Ben Duoc Underground Tunnel Complex.

My Top 10 Travels of 2014

It is that time of the year again when I share my top 10 travels for a year. Why "top"? Basically, because it has become my favorite and it has provided some memorable traveling experiences for me. Getting premium for me were places I have visited for the first time because, well, there is nothing like the excitement and thrill of first time. Some places on the list were revisited mainly because I enjoyed going there and these places mostly garnered my top choices in previous years. So, here...

My top choice for 2014 is Siem Reap with the amazing temples of Angkor. It is easy to fall in love with Seam Reap because it offers a laid back vibe coupled with a surprising exploration and adventure. Angkor Wat, Angkor Tom, Banteay Srei... and list of temples go on. And after impossibly exploring its temples, Siem Reap remains to be a little charmer with old French shop-houses, shady tree-lined boulevards and a slow-flowing river.
