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!

    Quo Vadis, Tutubi?

    Just a quick post on Tutubi's whereabouts during the Holy Week break: nice faraway beach? high up in the mountains? doing a Visita Iglesia? in a foreign trip?

    nope, he'll just be home in Paete, Laguna, the way he used to be. He has only been away from home in Holy Week thrice in his life, one was due to W.O.R.K. and the other two were for family reasons.

    See how it's like to spend Holy Week in Paete, Laguna

    Should you ever find yourself roaming Tutubi's hometown, you might probably catch him...unless of course you know how he looks like! :P

    Be safe and Happy Easter in advance!

    we've passed Paete during our field trip/joy ride around laguna de bay, and the feel of 'pagkatagalog' is what I loved about this place. And the woodcarvings are really poetic...

    what's great about long holidays is that in case where you do not have any travels, you can check back on some of the blogs you have missed because of work and all. have a pleasant break my friend.
