Rizal & Laguna Road Trip – Visita Iglesia

Rizal & Laguna Road Trip – Visita Iglesia
Every year, a month before the Holy week, I and my friends usually make church visits to places not really far from the metro. I think this is the only time for us to make a simple road trip with a cause. It is very important to plan the trip before engaging to a road trip. Last year we had the great Churches of Batangas, but this time we made visit to the old amazing churches of Rizal and Laguna. First, in preparation to the trip, we made a research of old churches in Rizal and Laguna Province over the internet and made routes with the help of the online google map. We have to at least 7 or more...

PAETE & LAGUNA – Business and Dine part 3 of 3
After roaming around Lucban Quezon, we decided to go to Laguna again but this time Paete Laguna. We didn’t had the chance to take pictures of Paete because we were too busy strolling around the small town checking for different kinds of handicrafts made from wood and papers. Actually the reason why I included Paete in my itinerary is to look for a nice paper mache box for my packaging in my Bakedgoodies for Christmas. There are lots of handicraft products here that can be sold in tiangges in Manila, you can actually buy native things cheap ideal as birthday or Christmas gifts! You can also buy...

Taytay Falls, located at Barangay Gagalot, Majayjay, Laguna. It has one of the clearest flowing water, you could see it from the pictures. The water flows from Mt. Banahaw, through the mountain’s lush and untouched forest which keeps the water clear even during heavy rains....
