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!
I received lots of encouraging feedback from my legion of supporters (i'm delusional of course). Anyway, wrapping up such a busy week and looking forward to a long weekend ahead before an expected busy week again. I will tour QC tomorrow for garden venues with my camera in tow as usual.
I'll also take this chance to call on all travelers, backpackers and "usual" tourists, to join Explore Philippines yahoogroups that I co-moderate. Please send a blank email to THIS email address to opt in. There you'll find and meet fellow travellers in the Philippines willing to help you out or needing your help.
