The Best of #awesome #philippines80: 2012 Year End Rundown with a Twist

Preliminary

I am on my way to visit all the 80 provinces of the Philippines in one year. I call this project #awesome #philippines80. I have started it last May 2012 and by far, I have done half of the journey. And on those days I have been wandering around, discovering not-so-familiar places and doing whatever there is possible to do, I am left with the reality, even with my eyes closed, the Philippines is really awesome and beyond compare.

Journey

The list above summarizes what I do most of the time when I travel.  Ofcourse, there are places more worthy to mention and be included in the list but this is for now. I have reserved the other destinations for some other purposes.  I have enjoyed so much my 6 months on the road trying to explore my country.  As always, it never failed to impress me.  I hope more and more people will get the same opportunity to see the Philippines. More than the sights, the sounds and the flavors of the islands, Philippines is all about Filipino hospitality, ingenuity and religiosity which translate to the kind of Filipino culture and norms that we now embrace.
