el encuentro: nina fuentes y upper viceo

two good friends who i consider as among the most traveled bloggers from the philippines. nina just won the 2011 nuffnang's best travel blog and also in 2010 as best philippine travel blog. upper on the other hand was born to live adventure. she did the long and dangerous spelunking in samar, the danao jump and backpacked south to north of india. here to feature two filipina travelers and their brief travel profile.
