About This Blog
Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!

    My First Ka-BLAG!

    Just to let you know i'm starting what has been a long time wish for me to publish some of my pictures and travel stories...

    I'll be blogging about my travels and photography "exploits" here plus occasional rants.

    If you have questions on travelling and exploring my beautiful home country, the Philippines, please do contact me.

    A short list of my wanderings:

    Ilocos (Pagudpud, Laoag, Vigan), Zambales (Subic, Potipot Island, Iba, Candelaria), Cordilleras (Baguio, Sagada, Bontoc, Banaue), Metro Manila and adjacent provinces (Bulacan, Batangas, Cavite, Laguna, Quezon, Pampanga), Tarlac (Mt. Pinatubo, Capas), Mindoro (Puerto Galera) Bicol (Daet, Naga, Legazpi, Donsol), Visayas (Cebu, Bohol, Dumaguete, Iloilo, Bacolod, Guimaras, Siquijor, Roxas, Kalibo), Mindanao (CDO, Davao, Camiguin, Bukidnon, GenSan, Digos, Saranggani), and many more!

    have travelled beyond our shores to:

    Thailand (Bangkok, Ayuthayya, Pattaya)
    India (Mumbai)
    Malaysia (KL and Genting)

    I trace my roots from the artistic town of Paete, Laguna

    I'm currently using Canon EOS300D Digital Rebel and Canon Digital Ixus 30 for photography stuff i'm learning while displaying my photos on the Net and on my Palm Tungsten E and iPod Video. I'm "not" a gadget freak! :)

    Feel free to drop by!

    i really find your blog interesting and very helpful for starter in travelling like me. :) i really would like to see more of our country - ilocos, batanes, bohol, camiguin, palawan and zamboanga. but then, i am limited to do so because of my budget.

    i am thinking of visiting ilocos (pagudpud, laoag, vigan) this coming holy week. i thought of rendering travel agency services but then they are very costly. however, should i go on with backpack traveling, i am worried with my transportation costs. will you be very kind to give me any tips in making my holiday super sulit? :)
