I stop working 2 years ago, why? Because I want to travel.

I wish to travel now that I still have the strength to do so and be able to enjoy life while I still can.

For the month of January 2017, I joined a couple of travelers through a travel group going to Caramoan. Caramoan Island is located in the lower eastern part of Camarines Sur in the Bicol region


For 3 days and two nights, I paid for P3, 950.00, all in.

We travelled for 14 hours from Manila to Caramoan

Things that I learn when traveling with a group.

  1. Make sure about the van capacity. Since you will be travelling for like 14 hours or more, you need to be at least comfortable during the trip
  2. Bring snacks and drinks during the trip to avoid so much stop over and to lessen your expenses along the way
  3. Bring not just a neck pillow but a small pillow as well that you can sit on just in case the sits are not a little bit hard
  4. Ask about your accommodation and the capacity of the room that will be assigned to you.  Baka naman pagsiksikan kayo sa isang room, 4 to five is the ideal pax
  5. Bring water proof bag for your gadgets
  6. Pack light and just bring the necessary things
  7. As much as possible bring toiletries in small container and bring extra plastic for wet clothes (baka lang di matuyo pag pauwi na kayo)
  8. Use sandals or shoes (mabato minsan sa mga beaches pag baba nyo, baka madala ng alon ang slippers nyo).
  9. If you have a vest, bring it. The vest we use during the trip are a bit worn out and not so reliable (ang lakas ng alon at maganda na ung ready just in case lang, mataas kasi ang alon pag dating ng hapon.

Caramoan is still new and still need to improve and develop its tourism.  I will come back again but will try another route and mode of transportation.

Traveling makes you see more of life and it’s also the time to meet new friend

So travel pa more………….

See more place…………. That’s my goal for the next five years of my life.
