Batad by julvar

Nothing comes easy in life and that’s especially true in the Cordillera Mountains. To see the attractions you have to sweat it out. After five hour trekking, unfolding before my eyes was the majestic man made marvel of ancient Filipino engineering, the Batad Rice Terraces. There are rice terraces and there is Batad and its amphitheater of rice terraces. if you’re looking for a perfect first “Oohh” and “Aahh” moment than this is it. It’s blinding beauty only amplifies it’s sheer size. Seriously, this place looks like a mega-concert stadium venue, where the bleachers are row after row of perfectly sculpted green terraces ( build from rocks ). It’s so gigantic that you could easily fit in all of Manilla’s twenty million residents and still have space left over. Referred to as the “Stairway to Heaven,” the terraces were created from the land over 2000 years ago by the Ifugao tribal peoples using primitive tools, an achievement of engineering that ranks alongside construction of the Pyramids. As you can see it’s not luxurious, my “hotel room” was just a small hut, but the view and the serenity of the surrounding nature more than made up for it.

The Paradise by julvar

Picture was taken at Merimegmeg Beach in the Bacuit Archipelago, Philippines. I’m was waiting all afternoon for the sunset, but instead the sunset a big storm arrived. I’m sure you can figure out the rest of the story. One of the best and most beautiful beach I’ve ever been to. What struck me most about this beach was the tranquility of the setting. There are only a handful of people here at any one time, but everyone seems to respect the quiet. Everyone finds their spot, does their thing but in a way that preserves the peace; something that is hard to find on the tourist trail these days. When I was there, there was only about ten other people on a huge stretch of white sand. This beach gets you away from the hustle and bustle and takes you back in time to what travel would have been like in the old days.

The Jungle by julvar

Pls. see on black (pressH)
After getting bored in south Bali, I escaped up to the mountains of Ubud. Ubud is culture, yes, but hiking in the surrounding hills transport you far from your memories of frantic south Bali. It’s a majestic vision of emerald steps, serious jungles and river gorges receding into far away distances. Ubud is not just another destination, this town is a state of mind – a feast for the soul. Around this town there are so many great treks you can take. I decided to take the Campuan Ridge trek and can tell you that here I saw jungle that I’ve only ever seen in movies. I started the trek at 5 am in the morning, as the heat and humidity is otherwise unbearable in the middle of the day. The biggest surprise for me was that there was nobody else in that jungle. After many hours of trekking I finally encountered another person, a stock broker from London. When I asked what he could possible be doing here, he said he comes here every year for months to escape the chaos of the civilized world. He also told me about the resort at the bottom of the trek where he is staying, a resort which specializes in absolute relaxation only ( including yoga, meditation, etc ) and is in the middle of the jungle. I very much enjoyed the solitude of being up in the mountains and this jungle. The mountain in the background is the largest active volcano in Bali, G Agung ( 3142 m tall ).
