I am from Mindanao, I have lived all my life in Mindanao. When I was young I dreamed of visiting different tourist spots in my own country because I used to see these beautiful places in my textbooks only. I thought I couldn’t visit such beautiful creations in my entire life and I am happy that I have set foot and took photos with these lovely God’s gifts to us.
Mt Mayon is an active volcano, it can be devastating, and sometimes it is scary, a lot of people have lost their lives when it erupted years ago but still I couldn’t help myself from saying “WOW” to this volcano with a symmetric conical shape.
The entrance fee was 10 or 20php per person. I really couldn’t remember because the only thing I can remember up until now is that when we arrived at the area, the clouds have suddenly make way and show us the beautiful Mt Mayon in all its glory. I can stay all day in the area just watching the beauty that Albay has to offer.
My husband told me a story that Mt Mayon will only show herself when you are beautiful and will be covered with clouds if you aren’t. He was scared at first because he assured me that I am beautiful so he was sure that Mt Mayon will show herself to us but on our way, we can see from afar that the volcano was covered with clouds. He was so happy when we arrived that Mt Mayon showed herself and proved to me that I am, indeed, beautiful.
Bangui Wind Farm is located in Bangui, Ilocos Norte, Philippines. I used to read about the Bangui Windmills in books when I was younger, because it is considered as one of the tourist attraction in the Municipality of Bangui. It is the first wind farm in the Philippines. When I set foot at the place, I was amazed by the wind mill’s size. It was BIG, no, it was HUGE and I was like an ant under it.
I was mesmerized by its beauty. I was so happy that I have visited the place together with my husband and I have finally tick off this place in my bucket list. We brought our own car from Mindanao, so it was easy for us to visit the different tourist’s spots in Ilocos. You don’t have to pay for an entrance fee and there are souvenir shop in the area where you can buy different items such as printed t-shirts, ref magnets and key chains.
My Mom is Boholana so we are obliged to go home every year in order to celebrate my Mom’s hometown Fiesta. But Last April we went to Bohol not to celebrate the Feast of any Patron but to have our vacation. Together with Papa N and the our kids we conquered Bohol for the first time, together. We even surprised Papa N because he didn’t know that his Brother and Sis in law will be with us for our one-week vacation in Bohol.
Of course, if you are in Bohol, you have to try out Loboc River Cruise. You should not MISS IT! The cruise, the food, and the view are simply awesome.
