CamSur Watersports Complex And Its Eco-Village

More than a month ago, I spent my second vacation (February 20-March 24, 2014) in Pili, Camarines Sur, and part of my supposed travel itinerary was to  to take a bath at Tinandayagan Falls in Libmanan and visit the first ever tropical Strawberry Farm in the south at Ocampo.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Carefree

(The picture is a memento of one of my visits [2010] to CamSur Watersports Complex.)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Peaceful

At last, this week’s photo challenge came because I have been waiting for that time this favorite photo of mine surfaces again.

Caramoan Islands: The Next “Boracay Island”

During the year 2009, the islands of Caramoan were still isolated from the rest of Camarines Sur and the Philippines until year 2010 came when the word Caramoan is no longer different from “Bieber”. The place that was once unexploited from commercial tourism as the Philippine’s Secret Paradise–the very reason why it was also chosen…

Mount Isarog: The Gateway To My Backpacking
