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!
Traditionally Holy Week is spent in the provinces to participate in various Holy Week events and activities like Visita Iglesia but recent trends always now point to a beach vacation and the first place that comes to mind is Boracay (some people go to Puerto Galera or any other beach near Metro Manila).
A pilgrimage to the Grotto or Willy's rock:Boracay's famous landmark at Station 1 should form part of Boracay Holy Week activities for a Catholic on vacation
Ideally, Holy Week in Boracay should be like this for Catholics but Boracay is actually teeming with "millions" of people spending the long vacation there including showbiz stars and celebrities.
Tutubi doesn't like the crowds and prefers off-the-beaten-track destinations. He doesn't see himself going back to Boracay in the near future out of his own pocket.
