Created by Eugene Villar.

I first read about Lakbayan at Shari’s I chanced upon it again at Jim Caro’s Blogbastic.

I want to laud Eugene Villar for coming up with this cool site. This is a good measure of how well-travelled one is in the Philippines.

I am a C Philippine traveller. I have been to places all over Luzon. having lived in Manila for 15 working years, I had the opportunity to explore Luzon more than the Visayas islands where I came from. Thanks to an ex who let me tag along with him on his business trips and to friends who joined me in my adventures. I grew up in the province of Negros Occidental – the shoe boot shaped island in the Visayas but have never been to the other side, Negros Oriental.

Nevertheless, I am happy to say that I have seen the Philippines (except for Mindanao, never had the opportunity) more than an average Filipino have.

  5. […] So much has changed since I left Sagay in 1986. I lived with my bro and his family in college and would only go back to Sagay once in a while. I was assigned in Manila for my school’s compulsary industry exposure (OJT) and since then have lived in Manila until I moved to Melbourne. It wasn’t financially practical to visit go home every so often. I may have seen a lot of the Philippines but mostly they were gratis as I have mentioned in this post. […]
