Last Post Before I Leave for Marinduque

Tomorrow night at 8:00 PM, I will be leaving for the Island of Marinduque, the heart of this beloved archipelago. For 4 days (Apr. 21-24), this island will be my home.

Expectations. Well, I do expect a lot from this trip:
  • Moriones Festival
  • Cave and water falls hopping
  • Jeepney topload ride
  • White sand beach of Poctoy
  • Old churches of Boac and Sta. Cruz
  • Heritage houses of Boac

My budget - P3000 only. 

Oh by the way, this is my very first solo travel, so I am really excited and very much kinakabahan... pero ayon nga sa post ni ms. Chyng, once you overcome this fear- the fear of first time solo travel - you will start to explore more, discover more and travel more. Good luck to me :)

my legendary backpack (been using it for 1 and a half year), my Pilipinas body bag, and my balabal na kakabili ko lang sa divisoria.
my printed Marinduque map and travel guide
for the first time in history, I'll be bringing a sunscreen with me.

Plan B
There is no Plan B, if ever this trip failed, I will follow the bahala-na-system, I will go to wherever my itchy feet will bring me.

*I will share to you my Marinduque trip on my next blog post, probably next week.



  1. Good luck, Ivan! Enjoy the trip. :)

  2. cave and waterfalls hopping!!! enjoy iban! inferview may sunblock. -wih

  4. Goodluck dear! I'm excited for you hehe looking forward to your entries and pictures lalo na mga Moriones Festival-related stuff. Have a blessed Holy Week :)

  5. My suggestion is that you should find a BIKE to hire.

    The beach is nice in Poctoy. Always buy your things in their Market, its much cheaper.

  6. went to Marinduque last year with no expectations and I was pleasantly surprised! Ganda din sa Tres Reyes Islands! Have a safe trip!
