I am Traveling to Self-discovery

It has been exactly two years ago since I have traveled by an airplane. Yes, I am 24. I cannot fathom still how that novel experience have completely changed the way I view the world. By the window seat of that plane, I have marveled on how small the world is from up there, how the roads have zoomed out into blur, how the houses and buildings have seemed like specks on the earth, and, how the mountains have been unsymmetrically beautiful and green and sometimes disappearing by the clouds.…

A Second Peek at Sanchez Peak

With the elevation of about 800 feet, about two hours of trek for us beginners, and now featured a snack bar, Sanchez Peak was one of the closest we could get for a very budget trek in GenSan. I went to Sanchez Peak two years ago and a lot has definitely changed since then. It was already commercialized. We started on the same trail we did before, the Balsinang trail; and there was a 10-peso entrance fee for the trail, and 20-peso parking fee for the motorcycle. At the now…
