The North to South Project: A Wrap - Up.

So here we are now, on the last part of the Travel Book 2015 [Summer Edition] Series. It's been a good journey for me as a blogger to take you guys up and down to my beautiful country, the Philippines. A very divers country for having a cold weather on the mountains and peaks of Baguio City, to the northern provinces of Luzon all the way down  south with the summer heat of 2015 and the spectacular views of islands of Masbate pass and the rodeo province of the Philippines.

This is the review of our trip: 
  1. Travel Book 2015 - Chapter one: BLT (Breakthrough Leadership Training) 
  2. Travel Book 2015 - Lens Project: Baguio City and the North
  3. Travel Book 2015 - Chapter two: The Sentimental Value
  4. Travel Book 2015 - Lens Project: South Luzon
  5. Travel Book 2015 - Lens Project: Rodeo City 

Did you know that South Luzon and Rodeo City posts should be one, but there are many pictures for the post, it's gonna be long so i have to cut them into two.  



As i travel, i really fell in love with the beautiful creation of God that pushed me document every bits of it that it got me 1,000 + photos in my camera, thank goodness that atleast, majority is published on the internet. During this travel, i also brought down learnings, memories and of course, music with me. I am fascinated by Kari Jobe's "The Star and the Sky", the lyrics tells that everything is intact  because of God's powerful hands that holds us. In relation to that, i created a video documenting my travel plus this wonderful music of Kari, that video is also live in Youtube: Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vL0xlv_Qr80 

Now, we are wrapping up this travel book for summer this year and see you again for my next travel in a mid year/post year edition. For the mean time, here's the video i created that should make you feel travelling down from the chills of Baguio City to the hot sunshine summery of southern beach of the Philippines!. Enjoy!

When i rode the ferry going back to Manila, there are dolphins swimming towards us, the other one even flipped, as if trying to make a show! Check it out on the vid!




What do you think about the video?
