  16. Best part of your blog that I've read so far is this list..just like the others, I was also inspired to creat my own list..Perhaps that will be the main idea of my own blog (if I am to create one)..
    Good job on creating this informative, inspiring, and nationalistic blog! Mabuhay!

  17. Nice bucket lists

  18. hello! 'just wanted to solicit an opinion, since you're a "lakwatsero" anyway.:) What place would you suggest if I want to have a sort of "weekend vacation" to be able to get away from stressful office work? A place which is refreshing and has nice views for sightseeing but is not too far from Quezon City (coz it's just gonna be just for two days anyway--a weekend--and must be back by Monday again for work).

  19. Ivan, di lang ako naaliw sa listahan na ito, naliwanagan pa ako sa ibat-ibang bagay tulad ng ilang probinisya meron ang Pilipinas at, higit sa lahat, kung anong pa ang magandang gawin para sa istorya ng isang lakwatsero.


  20. Hi Ivan!


    If you happen to visit Cagayan de Oro City and/or Northern Mindanao, don't forget to contact me coz I might help you on your travel. :)

  32. Ivan,

    I'm really impressed of your list as well as your travel journals. In 1999 I was with a group of Canadian-funded project collaborators in the ARMM region and we went to visit Turtle Islands (Tawi-tawi province) but we first went to Sandakan, Malaysia (off Borneo Island) which is only an hours speedboat ride compared to Tawi-tawi which takes us around at least 10 hours or so. I would suggest you include Turtle Islands (6 belongs to PHL and 3 to Malaysia). The only catch there is the security as there are lots of pirates and bandits. We coordinated with the local chief executive (mayor of Turtle Island).

    San Francisco, CA

  33. very inspiring ang lists. nagkaroon ako ng idea na gumawa din para next year :-)

  34. # 83 and 89 are both Imelda Marcos.

  35. OH MY GOD! I just found a person na kapareho ko ng interests. I love adventures and i love nature. By the way Biology graduate din ako kaya siguro nga innate na ang pagiging nature and adventure lover. I'm just kinda jealous dahil ang dami mo nang nagawa and na achieve sa 'yong "bucket list" kasi ako wala pa akong nagawa niisa. Well, congrats and keep on blogging your adventures. It is such a nice blog. 👊

    1. Yeah.. :) I'm a biologist too. And I just discovered now that you are (Ivan) is a biologist too. :) .. Well, ehem.. heheheh.. I'm a biologist too.. and like you I like climbing mountains :)
