Photographs. On The Road: Philippines. Vol. 1

I remember my first day in the Philippines: we were walking around in Mandaluyong with a friend, and every single person I met on the streets smiled or greeted me. “Helloooo. How are you today, sir?” Same was on the next day, and on every single day of the 6 months I spent in the country. Hitchhiking around the north of Luzon Island, the largest of 7107 islands that make the Philippine archipelago, I came to realize one important thing about people here: no matter what happens, they always smile.

Interesting fact: According to 2009 data from “The World Factbook”, the total length of roads in the Philippines is 213,151 kilometers.

    • I wish I could travel to the Philippines right now 🙂 But I am so afraid of the word “plan”. So, let’s say, I have an idea to visit the islands again in 2014! But it all depends on the Road 🙂

  1. Hmmm…. Yeah, “plan” is sometimes dreadful. Well, I do hope to see you here. But I hope I am not in Armenia when you visit the Philippines!

  2. Yeah, and they bring lots of rainwater. In fact, a half-hour regular rain now causes flooding in Manila and nearby regions. What more of typhoons! So, lemme know before you make your final plans or schedule. 🙂
