Capiz | At Home In Roxas City ~ Bimboy Travels

Capiz | At Home In Roxas City ~ Bimboy Travels | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

Roxas City, The Seafood Capital Of The Philippines. Quite a big tagline for such a quaint and peaceful component city in Region VI Western Visayas. I have to admit that I found it ridiculous as a kid, but of course, I spent all my childhood days encumbered in its embrace, the smell of salty tang in air near the beaches and estuaries is already married to my soul forever, but the tagline is something I didn't understand until I started to appreciate the aesthetics of this city, my home.

Backpacking Pilipinas: Braving Basilan | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

My mother didn't know that I went to Basilan. In fact, she wasn't aware that her two curious daughters went to this island which is widely known for its volatile security situation. She would have definitely opposed the idea that we would step in this island that has been so notoriously portrayed in the local and international media.
