when one shares the experience

the experience of roaming will always be memorable even without the magnificent mountain views or the luxurious and cozy rooms. many enjoy going out as a bunch of noisy excited barkada while others prefer the solo backpack style. just a week ago, you shared your most memorable road trips and ROAM team has decided! here comes the three winning entries."with my travel buddies, i had one of the best road trip. we roam the whole laguna for 3 days. considering we dont have a car. as in commute galore. we started at the rizal side of laguna using the zigzag road of rizal. we went down to siniloan then pakil which i can say is the most rustic places of laguna. had an stopover at paete, the most beautiful community ive ever seen in terms of heritage sites. had over night at pagsanjan. then to liliw and majayjay, where we had an overnight. the chill of majayjay was so awesome. then off to heritage site of laguna the famy and victoria then to LB where we savor the hot spring of the places then go home... too bad we miss the san pablo lakes." - bryz25

"My most memorable road trip was in Quezon province. It was an extreme adventure since the road was rough and rocky for a jeepney topload ride. I can just imagine now how adventurous I was in my younger years, unmindful of any danger in our trip. Some folks warned us also that some bandits were hiding in a nearby mountain. But we dared because our mind were set to see the beach and we proceeded then to Cagsiay. And what a breathtaking moment when we finally reached the destination. It was all worthy to have faced the challenges in getting there, to have witnessed such wonderful island, untouched and unexploited." - nuts

"mahapdi na ang mga mata ko habang nakasakay sa bangka kasama ang apat pang kaibigan. galing kami sa isla ng anawangin. nakatitig ako sa papalubog na araw, sa nagkalat na ulap na kulay dugo, at ang pagtalsik ng tubig ang pawang nagpapalamig sa katawan ko. gandang ganda ako sa haring araw na nais ng matulog, at bigla bigla ay may tumalon na isang dolphin.
kung pumikit ako ng oras na iyon, siguro magsisisi ako buong buhay ko." - ax

Congrats to the winners! I liked most the entry about the road trip to Laguna (not that I'm biased because I'm from there). Their 3 days trip sounded very worthwhile and adventurous. The zigzag road in Tanay Rizal to Siniloan is a must-try.

Have you tried the "Nobenta" road of Surigao del Sur? A lot of my friends testified that it is something you can't see anywhere else. :)
