TURISTA Magazine: Travel to Camiguin for its Sights of Wonder

One of the things that I love about wayfaring is having the opportunity to share my passion for it. And in the past two years, I've been offered the chance to write for a few local magazines. It is through print media that I continuously get to show more of my love for exploring the Philippines. 


Last year (October), my beach feature on Camiguin was published on TURISTA Magazine. I was truly ecstatic when I finally saw it, as it was my best travel write-up yet. I was also super proud of myself, as the article got to cover two pages of the mag. 

Check out Rubel's photo by the beach! :)

I really put a lot of effort on this particular story as I loved everything about Camiguin. It truly counts as a Philippine destination that's worth traversing. How so? Well, before Cebu Pacific offered their direct flights to Camiguin, my group and I had to travel in all transportation means --- via air, land and sea. It was a seasick-and-butt-numbing kind of experience! [Read our Mindanao 2010 escapade here]


I can't help but look back on the many blessings that 2013 has provided me, as it gave me another shot at ticking off one more dream from my bucket list: to write for a travel publication (and still counting). 

Here's to more travel features this 2014! :)

I have never seen Manila like this ever before. Thank you for sharing this post. Your post have given me a whole new perspective.

Mai Flores said...

Manila has improved a lot, it has been quite some time since I went to Manila, is the Chinese Garden still there?

Mai Flores said...

Hehe sometimes I just want to be like a tourist in Manila exploring different sites that are part of culture and history. That's why I asked if visitors can take pictures without asking admin.

Mai Flores said...

The walking tour looks really fun Mai. I hope I can do it too someday.

Mai Flores said...

I've always wanted to try his tours ever since I keep seeing him around facebook. He seems pretty cool xD

Mai Flores said...

Nice! I would have really gone with you if I knew this! Also, yes, the character of the tour guide will really affect the over-all experience! :)

Mai Flores said...

Mai Flores said...

Hahahaha! Are you referring to UP's annual Oblation Run? :P And oo ba! Would love to take you around my alma mater.. :)

Mai Flores said...

Congrats! You are lucky with this free tour. I wish I could trip around places worth-visiting in Manila too. Maybe I'll do it with my close friends in Manila.

Mai Flores said...

I have never been to Camiguin. Sad reality! I would really want to go one day, maybe this year who knows. I read your article when I picked up a copy of the magazine at the NAIA Terminal 3 late last year and Camiguin has been on my mind since.

Mai Flores said...

Beautiful place, although I haven't been there for a few years now. Of course, you've tried the Vjandep pastries, right?

Mai Flores said...

How was Krissy's experience when she last traveled to Camiguin? Kasi super kapagod the first time I visited since wala pang direct flights doon noong 2010.

Mai Flores said...

Awww... thanks Kessa! You should definitely visit Camiguin, as it's such a wonder! :)

Thank you again for taking a snapshot of my article! I really appreciate it. :)

Mai Flores said...

I have tried Vjandep. :) I even brought some home, along with some tablea. :)

Mai Flores said...
