    Callao Cave was what inspired me to visit Cagayan Valley. In going there, we rented a trike for P500.00, roundtrip.

  • Sunset Chasing at Magapit Suspension...

    Its fun reminiscing how we rushed and quickly got out of the car just to take a picture of the picturesque sunset, while some local bystanders watched us with wonder, all smiles but seemed totally had no idea about us all.
