Traveling is the next best thing to me. The urge to go places is inside me ever since I was little. I am lucky to know some close friends who loved to travel as well. And with their company, we were able to conquer several new places within the past few years and we plan to conquer more. And the next place we would like to explore is CARAMOAN.
Caramoan is a 4th class municipality on the Caramoan Peninsula, in the province of Bicol, Camarines Sur, Philippines. According to the 2000 census, it has a population of 39,642 people in 7,660 households.
The Caramoan Peninsula has gained tourism popularity in recent years. After the place has been featured in the news and local television programs, local and foreign travelers started to explore the beaches of the peninsula. Caramoan is one of the National Parks of the Philippines.
Popular tourist destinations are the Caramoan National Park, the Centro, and Gota Beach, and popular activities include diving, swimming, snorkeling and spelunking. From Wikipedia.
Survivor France chose this place too that’s why we’re dying to go there.

Next on the list…
Bungee jumping (also spelt “Bungy” jumping) is an activity that involves jumping from a tall structure while connected to a large elastic cord. The tall structure is usually a fixed object, such as a building, bridge or crane; but it is also possible to jump from a movable object, such as a hot-air-balloon or helicopter, that has the ability to hover over one spot on the ground. The thrill comes as much from the free-falling as from the rebounds.
When the person jumps, the cord stretches and the jumper flies upwards again as the cord snaps back and continues to oscillate up and down until all the gravitational potential energy and kinetic energy of the fall is converted into heat, sound, and other forms of non-mechanical energy. From Wikipedia.
~ I’m not into extreme sports these days. I just want to experience bunjee jumping simply because I want to grasp the feeling of letting go.

I’m officially starting “My own Bucket list” today. It’s a list of things I want to do before I kick the bucket, yes, just like in the movie–Bucket list. But I’m not saying that I’m gonna die soon and No! I’m not sick. I’m just doing this –just for kicks! Life is short and I don’t have all eternity so might as well list down the things I want accomplish right? Maybe someday I could fulfill them.

Scuba diving is swimming underwater, or taking part in another activity, while using a scuba set. By carrying a source of breathing gas (usually compressed air), the scuba diver is able to stay underwater longer than with the simple breath-holding techniques used in snorkeling and free-diving, and is not hindered by air lines to a remote air source. The scuba diver typically swims underwater by using fins attached to the feet. However, some divers also move around with the assistance of a DPV (diver propulsion vehicle), commonly called a “scooter”, or by using surface-tethered devices called sleds pulled by a boat.
