Mention Japan, the first thing that pops out to most tourists is either Tokyo or Osaka. Yes, we can’t deny how mainstream Tokyo and Osaka are- who wouldn’t love its beauty, right?

I want to chase every sunrise and sunsets and sleep under the stars. And so I go.

As a frequent traveler and blogger, staying connected on the internet is a daily essential in my life. It’s a responsibility for me to keep up to date with our social media and blog posts. And not just that, I also have to stay connected to access helpful information (e.g. google maps, translator, weather forecast, etc.) on the internet, to constantly communicate with my friends/ family, to check the status of what’s going on in the online world, and etc.

It was beyond magical. Imagine a setting where scenic, flamboyant trees with quaint leaves of colors green, yellow, red and orange are on each corners of everywhere; where the glory of the sun reaches you supplemented by the chill atmosphere- that kind of sunny where you still have to wear warm clothes to keep you cozy; where everything is worth appreciating for, and you just want to reach out and grab everything at your sight- that’s Seoul, Korea in the Autumn.
We all need a break; a break from every responsibility we all have, a break from the stress and pressure life gives us; a break from our daily grind; a break from everything. Yep, deadlines everywhere, the hassle commute, all these office drama, not to mention all the work you have to accomplish within the limited time you have- all these are just nerve-wracking! Definitely, we need to breathe.
Imagine the beautiful, the surreal, the “wow I can’t believe this place exists!” – that’s what you get when you have that perfect road trip around Rizal province.
I was in need of a quick adventure. My itchy feet has this strong desire to explore a place unknown to others; a place where there is less tourists, and more connection to the nature. Suddenly, I thought of Kalanggaman Island. And oh there’s Biliran province close to it. Thus, I thank God for the beauty of these provinces; a paradise that is beyond stunning.
