Memorable Travels of 2012

A PILGRIMAGE IN THE LOOP *
It was one of the most memorable travels I had in Laguna. I was able to do my Visita Iglesia in the Laguna Loop visiting the churches of Pila, Santa Cruz, Magdalena, Liliw, Nagcarlan, Majayjay, Luisiana, Cavinti, Pagsanjan, Kalayaan, Paete and Pakil. I appreciated the Baroque architecture of the Spanish era churches which was built centuries ago.


GRAND GALA IN THE LOOP
I am always posting this year about my commuting tour in Laguna Loop. It was started last year where I visited some of the landmarks in the said area which reflected the history of the province. In Victoria, I saw the colorful duck statues as well with the poultry industry in the town. In Pila, I took a glimpse of history with the heritage plaza with its ancestral houses. In Nagcarlan, I went to the Underground Cemetery and climbed to the belfry of Saint Bartholomew Church to see the view of the town. I also had a chance to take the canopy walk to Taytay Falls in Majayjay plus the thrilling adventure in the zigzag roads of the place. I saw the beautiful turquoise waters of Sampaloc Lake and take a glimpse of history in Magdalena. I also appreciated the art in Paete and Pakil and took the one hundred twenty-six steps to the hilltop church of Mabitac during the rainy weather.



SHOPPING CHALLENGE IN LILIW
I challenge myself if I can make a budget for one day shopping for only five hundred pesos. Well, it was all happened in Liliw where I bought a lot of native products from slippers, fruits, native sweets and even bayong. I bought it for affordable prize plus it has a good quality. I also experienced to eat at cozy restaurant in the town and it was a great delicious food offered in the place.
