A Year of Summeriffic Adventures

Time flies so fast. We’ve been to a lot of different beautiful places. Spent hundreds of hours on the road, on the sea, by the beach, inside our tents and sometimes even on beautiful mountainous ranges just to have a glimpse of the beauty of nature – a hobby that we’ll never get tired of.

And this coming April, as we celebrate the first year of our amiable adventures, we’re leveling up the experience with another most-desired destination we have on our wish list – Calaguas. A beautiful white-sand beach in Vinzons, Province of Camarines Norte.

For those who are following me on my social media accounts, you would notice that I’ve been in to camping lately, searching for the country’s less-crowded beaches and other destination. We call our group Team GoPro, a group of millennials whose main desire is to enjoy life while we are young – on a shoestring budget.
