my island province

if one would trace why i love crossing islands, going to the beaches and embraces the many cultural aspects. you have to look back and see the island where i spent the earlier years of my life. out of the many islands in the country, one would consider our island as one of the most dangerous. earlier this year i had the chance to go home, this time to feature my memories of the island of Basilan. my island province.

Being young is an asset. Do adventure when you still have strong legs. My sons just came back from Bali and they did so many water sports like paruchuting, etc that they cant do back home...lol. Lovely beach there. I try to see if I can post some photos from their trip once they upload to their computers. I did not go to Bali with them cause hubby cant take leave. You bet Bali will be on my must visit list...lol.
