EN ROUTE: pusangkalye's 2010 travel destinations in pictures

 I realized that my travels were limited this year. Compared to other travel bloggers I could be considered as a home buddy. I was not able to go anywhere until the end of April 2010 due to preparations for my wedding which was a major financial burden. But I have no regrets. Less travel this year would mean more places to see in 2011. One more thing, 2010 has become a mix of events, photography and personal blogging and I couldn't be more happy thinking that I was able to balance leisure, work and personal achievements in my relationships as a married man.

1. Banaue and Hungduan Rice Terraces

ERRATUM:

I failed to mention our side trip last March during the Lenten Season when we visited our friend in Pampanga. Thanks to him, we finally got to see the famous dramatization of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ in Clavary.The setting, Barngay Cutud Pampanga. The event, Maleldo 2010. It was frightening to watch. At least for me.

We also went to Subic's Ocean Adventure. All photos were courtesy of his NIKON d3000 camera.

I hope to travel more this year and practice more on landscape photography. While going to off beaten places is a major challenge, I don't see anything wrong with visiting famous travel destinations in our country. My main goal now is to take good photos of the places I go to. In the first place, it is every travel bloggers responsibility to give justice to the places they visit by taking quality pictures. I thought of engaging into travel blogging 2 years ago coz I wanna help in promoting key travel destinations in the Philippines. And so I tried to improve in photography. I am not saying that I am now good at it, I still feel that I still have a lot to learn and I am willing to do so. After all, I don't want to do more harm than good to the beleaguered tourism industry of this country.

To all travel bloggers out there, more fun and exciting travels to all of us in 2011.......

  3. As always amazing shots... I especially like the Palawan and Banaue shots... very magazine cover worthy! Though most of your 2010 travels is around the country, most are key destinations to the country that I have never been and wishes to visit. May the coming year take you to more places to travel! Happy 2011!
