The Best of 2011

I am too lazy to make a blog post but I am just envious of my blogger friends who have made a round of their wonderful year. I can definitely say that 2011 is my travel year. I have been to many places that I never thought I would reach this year. Special thanks to Dominic of for inviting us to his memorable trips. I would also like to extend my gratitude to my on-line friends the Pinoy Travel Bloggers and of course the Bagets, you guys fuel the traveler in me. 

Batangas, Amansinaya and Ambon-ambon Falls: 
It was nice to start year 2011 with a new company and new found friends. 

Batangas, Church Hopping:
Part of our yearly Lenten Season Ritual is the Visita Iglesia, in just less than 24hrs we have toured around Batangas to visit it's historical and heritage churches.

Zambales, Subic Tree Top Adventure:
Nothing beats an all girls road trip and the adrenaline rush from jumping in heights! :)

Cavite, Tagaytay:
A quick getaway from Manila, R and R with the fambam!

Laguna, Montenevoso Resort:
Family Bonding = treasures moments! :)

Albay, Legazpi & Sorsogon, Donsol, Juban:
I have good and not-so good trips, but all of them was fun! And my adventure to Albay and Sorsogon was so-so, even though I didn't get to see the Mt.Mayon and the whale sharks, I still enjoyed barrio life and the company of my friends.

Cebu, Plantation Bay:
My 2nd trip to Cebu for the year was just a quickie, so we decided to just tour around Mactan and we visited Plantation Bay.

Yearly trip with my college buddies was worth the truancy I committed :)

Camarines Norte, Calaguas Island:
I have been raving about this place for so long, so when Dominic sent an invitation, I immediately say yes! It was extra special because Gab is tagging along and Carlo will be celebrating his birthday :)

Zambales, Mt. Pinatubo:
My birthday trip for the year and my first trekking adventure. It was also an outreach event which was also organized by Dominic. This trip made me realized that I have a lot to be thankful for.

Cebu, Moalboal:
I was sent to Cebu for work and it was great to have a day-off for a quick side trip. It was also my first time to have a meet up with other bloggers. Special thanks to Doi, Edcel and Edwin!

Aurora, Baler:
Lala and I, have been best friends for more than a decade, but we never have a trip together! A road trip to Baler was extra fun because we get to try surfing.

Mountain Province, Banaue and Batad:
I survived BATAD. :)

with my travel buddy Majane and our good friend Divine :)

Palawan, Puerto Princesa:
A decade with your love one and a stunning view of Puerto Princesa - leaves me singing "I couldn't ask for more.." -yuck... cheesy! :)

La Union, San Juan:
I have been bitten by the travel bug, but the worst is, I got addicted to surfing! Hahaha! Been back and forth to La Union to get wiped out and be elated every time I had a good ride. San Juan is like my SM, it got everything I need. The beach, the waves, the company and the view. I am s*cker for sunset and every time I witness it I feel so blessed and thankful to the Lord almighty.

To my readers, thanks a lot for visiting and paying attention to my non-sense. I really appreciate all your comments, as in! :)

To my PTB friends, you guys are my inspiration and mentors! Just keep on traveling and having fun!

To my friends and family, I love you guys! Hahaha!

To Carlo and Gab, both of you inspire me to do great in life and it feels good to know you are always around.

Cheers to more travel! :)
