Visited Philippine Provinces

"Wag maging dayuhan sa sariling bayan." (Don't be a foreigner/stranger in your own country).

Before I was able to have my first international trip in 2005, I was exploring the Philippines. It started when I was young. My parents make it a point to have family vacation somewhere at least once a year.
Notable trips were our,
1993 and 1997 Philippine Road Trip. From Isabela, Luzon to South Cotabato, Mindanao vice versa.
1996 North Tour. Santiago, Isabela to Baguio City, Benguet via Cagayan and Ilocos provinces, then coming back through Pangasinan and Nueva Vizcaya provinces.

San Juanico Bridge. Leyte-Samar
tatak Marcos 

I was also a member of a choir when I was in highschool and college. We went to different provinces in the Philippines for our singing ministry.

These factors allowed me to visit 52 of the 81 Phillippine provinces as of this moment.
Philippine Military Academy. Baguio City, Benguet 

Some of my friends, especially Pinoy travel bloggers, make it a goal to visit all 81. Some of them have accomplished this feat already. They are now members of Club PH81. I hope that someday, I will be able to visit all 81 provinces, too.

The Philippines is beautiful. So, if given the chance, visit her different provinces. Each of them has some unique things to offer; the food, culture, language/dialect, and scenery.

"Tara na biyahe tayo!"

Have I visited your province? What are the things that your province offer that is worth visiting?
