  1. wow this is way cheaper than the rates na nakikita ko online and take note, discounted price na yun... I guess it is really ideal to conduct your own DIY tour .. it's quite risky but the experience you get from it is really more rewarding! I admire your courage for traveling alone. keep it up bro!

  2. The 2,000 rate for a 3D2N is really low. May I just ask if you visited there in lean season, coz it seemed that the place is empty thus is more endearing to explore.

  3. I truly envy you guys. I've never been to Vizayas and Mindanao, even in other parts of Luzon. I will surely visit these places and since your guides are helpful, I will make this as my reference for my future trips :)

  4. I also want to go to Puerto Princesa but I don't want to spend too much. Aside from summer, when is the ideal month to visit Puerto Princesa? I don't want to go there during peak season because I suspect it gets crowded.

  12. If I have any regrets, it's that I didn't travel like crazy when I was still single. Had to wait for the kids to be old enough so I can do it again, for now I just stalk your blog :P
