Nofa Farm and Resorts: A Private Oasis of Tranquility and Restful Retreat

The Hiker’s Maxim: “Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints, kill nothing but time (J.K.).” I am a nature lover.

After dinner, thechinitowanderer, who is a flatmate, were discussing plans for the…

The World’s Finest Wilderness Lies Beneath The Manila Ocean Park
