My Longest Walk in La Union

Bacnotan-La-Union

Me in yellow shirt

I remember my longest walking experience in Bacnotan, La Union. It was semestral break and my best friend invited me and another friend to spend a weekend in her home province. I couldn’t remember the exact name of the place where we took a hike, but I think it’s somewhere near Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University also in Bacnotan. It was one of the tiring trek I had in my life. But when we reached the peak, we were treated with lots of green mangoes. It was a feast. We never had that much mangoes in our place. I thought eating mangoes with bagoong was worth the hours of walking. When it’s time to go down, I wish I could just roll my way down the hilly path. We were exhausted and no amount of wearing compression stockings could relieve my aching feet. It was a memorable adventure, but sadly, I’ll never experience anything like it again as I have trouble walking long distance.   🙁

Worthy Activities for Bloggers

I saw two interesting outdoor activities intended for bloggers and their respective families, and friends this month. Both activities will take place outside Metro Manila. The first activity will give bloggers opportunity to spend a day with their family somewhere in Tagaytay.

The second activity may require stamina for blogger participants as the activity entails more than muscle stretching/pulling to enjoy. It includes mountain hiking somewhere in the northern part of Luzon.

If I have all the time and financial capability right now, I would love to be a part of both activities that promote worthy causes.

Anyhow, the outdoor activities will provide opportunities for bloggers to take more pictures and interesting topics to write about. For bloggers, publishing new and unique contents means driving more audience to your website. This is also the best way to improve your metrics, especially if your goal is to increase your website’s domain authority.
