Someday, Jenn will go Places

A geographer, I am. Being one I have been exposed to many different cultures, landscapes, terrains, and weather phenomena. And being one I was able to travel many different places. That's when it all started...my passion for traveling and discovering the world. I actually at first intended on doing a travel blog but budget and time constraints hindered me to do one. Maybe someday I will, but for now I will do more fashion posts. I just thought of sharing to you guys the many wonderful places here in the Philippines I would really like to visit. To say that the 7,100 and more islands of the Philippines is beautiful is an understatement as you will see in the pictures below. Not many people around the world are aware of what treasure they can find in this water endowed, archipelago known as the Pearl of the Orient. I, myself have not discovered my country enough to be mesmerized but someday, Jenn will go places.

1. Batanes

This is my dream destination. But flights are super expensive as only one ariline serves the area and they do it only occasionally. I have always been mystified by this peacful island at the northern part of he country. Always bombarded with typhoon and year round storms, no wonder they use stone houses to make a sturdy refuge. This is at the top of my list and someday, I will set foot on this mystical island.
2. Bohol

I am such a loser I haven't visited Bohol yet. I definitely want to visit the choloate Hills on both summer and rainy seasons to see the difference. Plus the captivating big-eyed tarsier...who wouldn't love to visit Bohol?
3. Palawan

Can you see the gigantic stalactites protruding on the first picture? That's one reason why I would really want to visit Palawan - the rock formations. There are two places I would like to visit Puerto Princesa (picture 1 and 2) and Coron (picture 3 and 4). The place has stunning rock formations built throughout the geologic years since its creation. The area is also blessed with crystal clear water and rich biodiversity. 

4. Siquijor

I have long been mystified by this small island down south. I have always been told by previous house helpers of mythical creatures lurking around the area and that is reason enough for me to want to visit the place. Some people have testified of real creatures the go human-hunting by night but I am very skeptical about such stories being the city girl that I am. When I do visit, pray for my life tho! Hopefully, those stories are not true. 

5. Camiguin

What may seem like a deserted island in the pictures lies a hidden treasure in the fine, white sand beaches, clear blue waters and captivating hot springs. This small island located south of the Philippines has a hidden gem we have yet to mine.

6. Bellarocca resort in Marinduque

Known as the Little Santorini of the Philippines, now we don't have to go too far to experience a Meditteranean-like vibe. 

Someday, I will visit all of these places. Someday, Jenn will go places. For now, I am stuck here in Manila studying and working wishing to win the lottery and travel the world. :D
