How much of the Philippines have you visited? Check it out in Lakbayan! Here's mine....My Map...
Note: This is my journey map since I have started sharing my adventures and stories behind my travels, together with family, friends, co-mountaineer and specially with the X-plorerboyz.......
I've started traveling since 2004, after an unexpected death of my mother. That was the time I indulge myself into backpacking and mountaineering. Since then i've climb different mountains of our country. I've started as a freelance backpacker, joining different climbing invites, started with LA COBRA, YABAG, HALHALIN, and other few mountaineering groups out there.....i'm really sorry to forgot their names...^_^
But since 2007, i'm really glad to joined a company organized outdoor group, and i'm happy to say that i was no longer a freelancer backpacker. I've joined a group called SPI Mountaineering Club (A Company Outdoor Org) based from Paranaque City, as of now, i'm of the oldest from the group that still climbs once in a while from "Batch ECO", Mt. Dagulgol 2007 Induction Climb......
