Tourist spots in the philippines
For this week’s featured pinoy travel blogger we have Jaybee of Jaybee’s Travel Diaries. He’s been blogging for only less than two years but he has been to many different provinces in the Philippines. He has also been to other Asian countries like Malaysia, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore etc.

He does not consider himself as an expert in blogging or a master story-teller. His blogging all started out because of the need to tell the stories and to cure himself of the ‘post travel despression’ (which we all have).

Let’s find out more about his adventures.

What made you start your travel/travel blogging and when?

I’ve started travel blogging last February 2015 but traveling since 2012. I’ve always feel a “post travel depression”. And by creating this personal travel blog site, I have the world to listen to my stories and experiences. It’s one of my coping mechanism with my “not-so-normal” feeling leaving place/s after my adventure.

Have you learned a new language/words on your travels?

Not really but what I’ve learned is the way they speak Tagalog or English language (for my international travels).

I’m always on the go. Nothing can stop me from travelling except for natural disasters.

Chori Burger hahaha! Maybe it’s not too special but I love it. One of said to be attraction in the paradise of Boracay.

Next in Bucket List?

What place is still on the top of your bucket list you have yet to crossed out?

Batanes, of course! I was not able to book properly whenever airlines have their promos due to slow pacing of their website during promo period. And also, be able to visit all 81 Philippine provinces. 🙂

Favorite Place of travel?

Is there any particular place you’ve visited that you feel so at home that you were open in moving to that place?

La Union. Because when I’ve traveled here solo, I feel welcomed in this place. I like the ambiance here. Also, it’s accessible to some places like Baguio and Ilocos which you can manage to travel not more than 5 hours 🙂

Other hobbies besides travelling?

If you are not travelling, what keeps you busy?

I always do research. So when time comes that I need to visit certain places, I’m not always having my last minute research which can lead to travel glitch. Of course, no travel is perfect, it’s just that we can manage our trip properly.

Advice, tips or other travel hacks?

Do you have any advice, tips or a travel hack to help them save time, money, energy?

Travel at your own pace. It’s important that you enjoy all of your travels. Always research, that’s important so that you can save time, money and energy.

You can do your research by joining Facebook travel groups, online travel blogs and asking your peers who have been there in certain places you want to visit.

Favorite Philippine Beach?

Do you keep count of the Philippine Beaches you’ve visited? What’s you’re favorite so far or most memorable, like the first beach that comes to mind just now?

I’m more of beach bumming rather than mountain climbing haha! Most memorable beach that I’ve visited is Tambobong Beach in Dasol, Pangasinan. It was very memorable since it was my first time to celebrate my birthday out of town and on a travel.

That’s i! Thanks very much for this opportunity once again. One last thing…

Travel lessons?

What has travel taught you? Do you have any advice or tips for aspiring travelers?

It’s all about passion. Traveling is not just for people who were able to afford it or had the luxury in everything. Travel is for people who wants to discover themselves and face their fears. It is also for people who wants an adventure and escape to their nature dreaming and face the reality of the beauty what the world and life has to offer.
