The adventure to Corregidor Island, Bataan

As much I wanted to stay in Dampa, Timog, sharing crazy stories and laughters with my badminton buddies, I needed to leave the place for my adventure in Corregidor Island, Bataan. I will join the Corregidor Challenge together with photography enthusiasts and friends from the media which presented by Columbia Sportswear

Corregidor Island

I’m sure most of us somehow know why the Corregidor Island is so famous in the Philippines. The tadpole-shaped island is one of the important historic sites in the country. Who don't know the World War II? I will never forget the Philippine history because during my elementary and high school days, I needed to remember every details and dates of significant events that happened in the past. It's very useful in answering the periodical test in history subject and some competitions that I joined (naks talino!) lols

Marco Adventure goes to San Juan, La Union

Lack of sleep from the toxic world of my company, still headed to Partas Terminal, Cubao for my adventure in the surfing capital in the North, San Juan La Union, without searching anything about the place.

I felt so stranger inside the terminal looking those people sitting in the corner. Most of them are groups along with their family, friends and loved one. This was not the first time I traveled solo but still there’s something pain inside my heart. Woh! I’m such a dramatic traveler. hehe
