Maniwaya Island, Marinduque | The heart of the Philippines

Maniwaya Island
Let's accept the reality that when Boracay island was closed, the other comparable beaches were recognized - Maniwaya Island in Marinduque is one of those. The province of Marinduque is considered the heart of the Philippine archipelago and the neighbor of my hometown - Romblon. Gorgeous images of this island spread on social media which captured my interest. There's fine white sand beaches, amazing landscape, crystal clear water, vast diversity of underwater creatures and many more; photos below will explain more.

Historical Churches in Rizal, plus Pililla Wind Farm

Visita Iglesia 2018
I have been planning to visit the historical and century old churches in Pasig and the province of Rizal and the plan became a reality; today is the perfect day and the perfect season. It is my Visita Iglesia 2018 in a backpacking style. My itinerary started from the oldest church in Pasig, then the oldest Marian church in Cainta, St. John the Baptist in Taytay, and stunning Tanay Church with Baroque architecture. And to close our good Friday adventure, we visited the gigantic Pililla Wind Farm, also in Rizal.
