Selfie Sunday : Dong Ho of Eskapo

Dong Ho at Hungshan Mountains in China

A traveler extraordinaire is also one of the Philippines' most popular travel blogger. Papa Dom, Dominic or Dong is everyone's friendly travel buddy. He is a great source of information on places off-the-beaten paths and has a ready tip for those who want to visit a new place he has previously explored.

Dong Ho is also one of my best travel buddies and we have gone thru some tough travels in Capones, Basilan and Saranggani as well as relaxing ones in Imugan, Dingalan and Magalawa and adventure-filled one in Samal, Davao and Ilocos. And with our insatiable thirst for traveling, I am sure there will be more places for us to explore. 

As to the photo above, let Dong speak : "Taken at the Turtle's Peak of Huangshan Mountains which is one of the 77 granitic peaks. Considered as one of the most enchanting mountain range. This is one of my favorite because it was scenic from almost any vantage and that the experience of walking around China's most beautiful mountain during winter was priceless." 

For more of Dong Ho, do visit Eskapo, a compendium of his experience from island to island, mountain to mountain, connecting people having the same passion in travel or the mere love of going places.

    1. hi jobologist, you can always start near where it is cheap, then you can also book cheap flights during fare promos. the trick is, you just need to plan ahead and you may even join other travel bloggers so you can save on lodging. kaya yan :)
