Travel in and from the Philippines
Firstly, travel inside the Philippines gives the opportunity to experience many different cultures, languages and scenery. The Philippines has regions that are so different that it is almost like visiting a different country even just going from one town to another. As a group of 7,107 islands, the cultures present in the country are multiple. You can spend a lot of time traveling the Philippines without seeing all there is to see.
The other great thing about travel is traveling from the Philippines to other countries. Within just a short flight from the Philippines you can literally visit a dozen or more different countries! Take that out to 6 hours or less of travel and you can expand from a dozen to several dozen countries that are at your doorstep! It all leads to some great travel adventures from the Philippines without the need for long trips!
Of course, if you travel from the Philippines, coming home is always a great experience!

Over the years, we have all heard of drug mules, I think. Well, if you search Google for “Drug Mule” this is what you find: But, today, I am not talking of drug mules. I am talking of a very popular Filipino system of “sending” or “shipping” things, which makes use of “mules”. Right now, […]
My Dad and I were talking a couple days ago and he mentioned something called Google Local Guides. I hadn’t heard of it until then, but after he explained it to me and I did a bit of searching, I think it’s a really neat idea. Basically, it’s a way for people who know a […]
