AHP pampanga tour

Last Saturday I joined the AHP Pampanga heritage tour of Ancestral Houses of the
Philippines group. A long day of exploring different tourist spots and attractions in 
Sta Ana it started with a short ride via the super Nissan urvan of Roy Vincent Santiago 
which just took a quick 1 hour trip via NLEX even if we are late the ride was still 
smooth and with the summer heat soaring you cant go wrong with an urvan! 
Steeped in history and blessed with natural and man-made scenery, this town offers 
several sightseeing options for travellers, has always enjoyed the title, 
“Culinary Center of the Philippines, so for last Saturday's weekened the LOVERBOY
goes with fellow history and ancestral house lovers for another episode of time travel, 
come and join me, as I visit Pampanga for the 3rd time.

Sariaya Quezon heritage tour birthday roadtrip

I was told to reserve the day, March 11, my barkada's birthday charity tour to
Quezon, and I woke up early at 2:00am Roy dropped by and picked me up
and off to Sariaya we go. this small town in is located between Mt. Banahaw 
and Tayabas Bay, thus offering visitors hiking and beach adventures.  Yet it is 
at the center of this bustling municipality where one finds its most delicate treasures.
my favorite... old houses, heritage town. so today, the LOVERBOY talks about 
his adventure to this quiet town called Sariaya.

yesterday, (March 11)birthday celebrant Jenny and Ann my long time travel 
buddies are united again.  Jen is very involved in celebrating life! we love traveling 
because after each joirney we always come back with less spiderweb in my mind. 
we emptied our mind of all clutter upon departure, and fill it with many happy memories 
upon arrival. because life is to be focused on the present.

last Saturday, I invited my friend to join one of the monthly tours
of AHP (Advocates of Heritage Preservation) just 30 kilometers
south of Manila, its a day of rich history and culture, we went to
Cavite , the smallest province in CALABARZON but has one of
the biggest History stories to tell. if you go to Cavite, you can go
to a gourmet farm tour, a history walk , seeing / visiting heritage
houses or a day at the beach. this time we choose to visit old houses.
