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!

    Baguio's Session Road "In Bloom"

    Baguio's Session Road, the summer capital's main central business district, usually filled with vehicles stuck in traffic or parked on the inner lane of the thoroughfare, during Panagbenga Festival turns into a pedestrian-only road after the Panagbenga Festival Grand Parade of Floats

    Photos of Session Road with the crowd of Panagbenga Festival:

    The long queue of ladies waiting outside the washroom. There's no line to the men's toilet: it's good to be a man in times like this

    One thing that struck Tutubi was that it was in the same Chowking branch that he ran to relieve himself back in Panagbenga 2003, deja vu or just plain "Di na natuto?"
