LeahTravels: Dingalan, Aurora – A Day at the Batanes of the East

Last March 11, we went hiking to three different destinations at Dingalan, Aurora – the Batanes of the East. We trekked going to the light house (first destination), view point (second destination) and to Tawasan Falls (third destination). We hiked for a total of two and a half hours. It was a tiring day for me since the last time I hiked/trekked was about two years ago, but all worth it, ’cause I saw one of the most breathtaking sceneries I’ve ever seen! We saw the perfect blue sky, a great view of the mountains and blue ocean, the light house, the falls, and other gorgeous sceneries in one fun day.

LEAHTRAVELS: LA UNION 2018

Last January 27 to 29 was our first out of town trip for the year and we were able to see again the beauty of La Union after three months. We were able to do more this time than the first time we visited San Juan, La Union. This was more fun because we were able to tag along some friends. We were able to surf for two days, explore the city, and discover more food/restaurant destinations.

So here’s a photo diary of our short trip.

LEAHTRAVELS: SURF SESSIONS AT ZAMBALES

Hey guys! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Hahaha. Sorry for not being able to b/vlog lately. I was so busy last holiday season due to work and a lot more… but let’s not talk about that! 🙂

For this blog entry I’m gonna be sharing my latest obsession… Surfing! I just want to share my progress on learning how to surf and why I fell in love with it!

I first had my surfing lessons last October 2017 in San Juan, La Union, and I only had one goal… to learn how to surf! It’s been on my bucket list since college and finally I had the time, money, ride, companion and the courage to go there, face my fears and learn to surf.

LEAHTRAVELS: BORACAY (2016)

I promised myself when I turned 29 last October to explore more, collect adventures, travel even when I’m alone, and last November 27 I did my last adventure for 2016 with my friend, a.k.a. my travel buddy, Yusi and explored one of the most famous beaches in the Philippines that I’ve never visited before… Boracay. Yup, never been there because one, Boracay was never on my travel bucket list and two, people say that it already lost its beauty (maybe because it is too crowded already).

LEAHTRAVELS: BURIAS ISLANDS

Last June 3 to 5 was one of the most amazing adventures I’ve ever had. I did a backpacking trip alone to Burias Islands, Masbate. Well, I wasn’t all alone… It was a group trip that I joined, but didn’t know anybody. Hahaha! It was fun though. We did Island hoping, where we visited a total of 5 islands. It was my first time traveling alone… it was really refreshing to the mind, soul and tiring to the body. Hahaha! Thanks to GalaPH’s staff for taking care of me and answering my non-stop questions… Hahaha.
