Welcome to my blog!
Dec 31, 2009 – I have retitled this blog from “Fully Human Me” to “Pinoy Solo Traveler”.
I intend to post my travel stories and adventures here in this blog. Being a solo traveler that I am, I would just want to share my insights.
After being a “Weekend Traveler” this year 2009, I learned a lot of things. There are topics worth posting in this blog. And there are much more topics that is worth not posting, and would be better as is – unknown or discreet.
I would try my best to be as factual as possible, but of course I can not help but to share my own opinions and speculations.

Wanna hear my story?… Well, here it goes…
Puerto Princesa, Palawan
This is where it started – my being a beach-addict and snorkeling-addict. Even before this, I have been travelling a lot. But when I experienced snorkeling for the first time, I thought that it was really a great activity. A cheap activity that is, because you got to see fish and corals without scuba diving.
From thereon, I planned my travel with a beach and a at least a good snorkeling site.
Mactan Island, Cebu
At this trip in Cebu, this is where I discovered that being a solo traveller is also fun and a great idea.
My friends didn’t show up here in Cebu because a relative of theirs died. With that I was left alone at Cebu. With that, I muster all my courage and planned for an alternative trip. It came out a very interesting solo trip to me.
El Nido, Palawan
I entitled this trip at my “Ultimate Adventure”. And it was indeed an ultimate adventure trip for me. Until now, El Nido tops as my best destination I ever visited.
El Nido is now my benchmark for all my travels.
Sablayan, Mindoro Occidental
This is the location of Pandan Island and Apo Reef. This is where I first saw a pawikan.
This place is quite far from Manila. Travel time is around 12 hours. But thanks to the aircon vans, the travel becomes comfortable.
This is also one place I will come back again.
Pagbilao Grande Island, Quezon
This was an adventure roadtrip. Kwebang Lampas is the white sand beach you can find at Quezon Province. I never really thought that I can see a white sand beach at Quezon Province. But there it is…
I have been here a couple of times, and I still enjoy this place. I love this place because it is a very accessible destination. It is just a one ride from Manila. After landing in Coron town, you already start your boat tour.
What’s unique here is that there are shipwrecks here and black limestone cliff similar to El Nido.
And now, this list of places will continue to add up as I continue to visit places here in the Philippines.
