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!
A stone's throw away from OCCCI Hostel where Tutubi stayed, Ormoc Catholic Church is fairly new with it's marble facade and gold-leafed tableau inside. There was a funeral service the first time he passed by so he didn't enter the church at first and instead dropped by in the evening before resting.
There's no date nor history marker posted on the church but remnants of the old stone church can be found on one side of the patio now converted into a grotto.
