For those who wasn’t able to watch the Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho Summer Special last Saturday, you can watch the episode here:
The whole day of taping was all worth the 4-minute exposure on national TV. I still can’t believe that I’m watching myself on TV. It was not only a dream come true but a “tap on the back” that Filipinos are now open to the idea of cheap travel or “backpacking.”
As Ms.Jessica said, “Target kasi nyang makapaglathala ng libro na magbibigay ng tips kung paanong makapaglalakbay ng hindi lalampas ng Php500 kada araw and gastos.”
(He plans to write a book that gives tips on how to travel with Php500 budget per day)
Behind the scenes and travel details:
This was not shown on the episode but it was my first time to see a pawikan (sea turtle). This is in Dampalitan beach. The seaturtle was accidentally stranded on the trap nets for fish. It was surrendered to Bantay Dagat and will be released to the deep sea after the Holy Week.
We ended the shoot here- Mahabang Buhangin, Pagbilao, Quezon. This is the best cove we went into during that trip. I would gladly recommend this beach for every vacationers. can be reacehd more than an hour banca ride from Borawan
