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!

    The "Lost" Sheep of Camp Atilano

    As soon as Tutubi was able to check in at Garden Orchid Hotel and secured a tourism brochure, he boarded a tricycle to Pasonanca Park. It was a miscalculation since the road going to the park was sloping uphill that made it difficult to traverse. Ended up doing quite a trek going to the first visible part of Pasonanca Park: Camp Jose Atilano which is a popular camp site by the Boy Scouts of the Philippines' jamboree.

    Pictures of Camp Atilano:

    the tree house you'll often see on Zamboanga City's tourism brochures

    inside the camp were flocks of sheep without a shepherd

    The lost sheep of Camp Atilano with tents looking like tepees in the background

    After the brief photo opportunity, walked forward to the public swimming pool and serendipitously stumbled on a beautiful corner of the park: Jardin Maria Clara Lobregat.

    To be Continued...


    Park Entrance Free: None (as in Free)
    How to get to Pasonanca Park:

    Commute: At city center (called Pueblo) board a jeepney with Pasonanca signboard.

    When I was small I used to dream of having a tree house in the garden. This place is good for relaxation purposes.
