Philippines.

After fourteen years of traveling to the Philippines and living there for a year I have experienced some great times...and I will endeavour to share these with you...
I have spent a lot of time in Manila with the hussel and bussel of a busy large city...I found that great and am starting to add a page for Manila.
I wanted something quieter in my life so, with my wife's family living in Dipolog city I decided to go there.
After visiting Dipolog over the last fourteen years I have see the place change dramatically...with so much construction going on...from sports stadium to the Bay walk, to new garages and shops and houses...the place is buzzing...
I hope in the near future they get a handle on the terrible traffic congestion and the motorbikes and trikes with no lights...utter madness!
Dipolog is trying to bring tourists into the place and are going the right way about it. Make the roads safe and I think they have a winning combination...
Thing that the tourists would love are the amount of festivals that Dipolog have....a great many throughout the year..with street dancing and bands..all dressed up and having that carnival atmosphere.
The local areas have there own festivals and is open house to everyone..you can go in and share the food that they have spread out and move on to the next house...everyone will make you welcome...it's a great atmosphere and a wonderful way to spend your time in Dipolog...

    I am a native of Dipolog City too but presently living in Germany. Am happy that you feel comfortable in this place. Maybe one day we can make our first VT meet in the Dipolog Boulevard or somewhere to try Filipino delicacies with your Filipina wife and my hubby too;-)

Share your travels with the world!
