    Cutieee πŸ˜‰
    I absolutely love on the road freebies.
    hint: i try to bring food/ souvenir/ cutie mementos i can leave to the people who’ve been especially kind to me πŸ˜€

    i think my best freebie on the road experience would be the all expense paid trip in tawi-tawi πŸ˜› hahaha!!

    not really interested in Bataan, been there before on numerous field trips in elementary and high school πŸ˜› but the pawikan conservation seems interesting!!

    sana di masyado mahal πŸ‘Ώ

    • Good idea on the souvenir/mementos to leave people who’ve been especially kind. Magawa nga yan.

      You should rediscover Bataan other than your usual school field trips. You’ll learn more and at your own pace. πŸ˜€

  2. Kuya, very well written. πŸ™‚ Been to bataan for free but did not have the chance to go to Mt. Samat πŸ™ Yay, more travels to you! πŸ™‚ I’m curious about the Pawikan churva too! hehe

    • Thanks Laiza! Sayang at hindi kayo nakarating ng Mt. Samat. Isa pa man din yung sa mga must-visit places ng Bataan. I’ll post about the Pawikan churva soon. More travels to you too. πŸ˜€

  3. Been in bataan twice, I saw their beautiful beaches and the deathmarch mark the dambana and the shrine of valor, but i did not know that there is a pawikan conservatory in the place… πŸ˜₯
    Now I wanted to go back just to see the pawikans… πŸ™„
    Also…nakaka intriga ang 1,000 peso budget nyo ha…magaya nga… 😳 😯

    • Kami rin gusto namin bumalik para sa mga pawikans. πŸ˜€ go go go! kaya mo rin yung 1,000 Peso Budget for an overnight trip to Bataan. πŸ™‚

  4. I’ve been to Bataan once pa lang (balanga and bagac) medyo nakatipid din sa accomodation sa and yatch sa Las Casas Filipinas de Acuza dahil libre. Anyhoo didn’t know may Pawikan Conservation Area pala sa Bagac. Gudjan on the 1000 pesos 2-day challenge

  5. Nice…at nagawang free yung entrance fee sa Mt. Samat. Sa kakatipid namin dati nilakad namin mula pagbaba ng jeep hanggang Mt. Samat. Hehe. Pati pagpunta sa Pawikan Conservation Area nakalibre.:D Nag-rent pa kami ng bangka papunta dun at sa Power Plant dati. Ang galing 1k overnight na!:D

  6. yey! exciting naman.. best thing about Bataan- Zambales we have so many public beaches kaya lesser cost. I am from Olongapo, I don’t even need P1,000 P100 is ok with me and I can travel to so many beaches for free! πŸ™‚ sana sipagin ako to join this Blog carnival..

  7. The kindness of strangers and our ability to trust them, that’s what usually allows us to spend less and enjoy more. Nice post, Josiah!

    The Bataan born Filipinos are really
    goodhearted. Ate Lumen Banzon Alonzo,
    a retired Teacher from Balanga, told me that the Women witnessing along the road saved the lives of some fallen Soldiers during the “Death March” by covering them with their long Skirts because once the Japanese saw a fallen one, they eliminated by striking with their Bayonets.
    I find this heroic on their
    part because if the Japanese discovered this, they will surely kill the women. Remember that these
    Bataan women did not know personally the Soldiers. Then they cared for
    them until they were healthy enough
    to leave. I wish that this “Kagitingan”in us Filipinos will continue and be passed on to the
    coming generations. This is why I am
    imparting this. Keep on sharing!!!!
