My Impressions of the Philippines
During my seven month stay in the Philippines from late May 2012 until early December 2012 I was able to accomplish much of what I set out do to. There was simply not enough time and money to do everything that I wanted to do.
I stayed in Manila for a little over 2 months and in the Cagayan valley for almost 5 months on 2 separate occasions.
I wanted to see more of Ilocos Norte and the beaches on the northern coast. I wanted to see Santa Ana and the small islands off the northern coast.
I will plan ahead so that during my next trip to the Philippines I will take ample time to visit all the places that I want to see. I am looking forward to returning to the land that I consider my second home……The Philippines!
