I’m traveling in Zamboanga, Tawitawi…

Yes, I’m traveling and this is my third day of a 13 day trip around both ends, west and east of Mindanao.

I’m in Bongao, the provincial capital of Tawitawi at the far southwestern end of the Philippines near Borneo. Yes, I’m traveling and this is my third day of a 13 day trip around both ends, west and east of Mindanao. It’s good to be back, as actually, I’ve been here before, but it was almost a decade ago.

How was my travel for the past three days? It was great! Zamboanga was a bit chaotic but the short trip around the old quarter was a lesson in history. The following day, I flew with a friend to Tawitawi and for the past thirty eight hours, I’ve tasted sati, climbed Bongao Peak for the second time and just went to the beach after.

Davao will be next, starting tomorrow and after a few days, will be back in Maitum to explore a waterfall. After that place, I’m still thinking of probably going to Maragusan Valley, or visit Lolong, the biggest crocodile in captivity. But that can change though depending on circumstances.

Do wish me luck! :)
