  8. Great photos! I love visiting old structures, and that lighthouse is now one of my to-go's sa bucketlist. :) So many people are traveling these days (I know this was posted last Jan pa, but still) na parang gusto ko rin to leave everything temporarily and travel for a bit! Agh! Good to know you had fun!

  9. Thanks for posting this! I'd definitely keep this in mind when I visit Guisi Beach and Lighthouse :>

  10. Take advantage of your youth as they say. You are fortunate to see the wonders of the country and be able to share that in here.

  11. Ohh, the places you've been to! Makes me realize na there is so much in our country that I have yet to travel to pa. Keep on travelling!

  12. I would love to see that Light House. I always get amazed with century old establishment/attractions. Swerte mo naman. :-)

  13. Kudos to a very detailed travel post! I've been wanting to visit Iloilo (and Guimaras). I just haven't got the chance to catch a cheap plane fare but I'm pretty sure I will soon enough. You just gave me an additional "to-do" in my bucket list. Cheers!

Bantayan Island via Estancia, Iloilo

Bantayan Island it is not a place for a shopping or an adventure. This island is all about peace.
