|ABOUT PINOY ADVENTURISTA|
Pinoy + Adventures + Turista = PINOY ADVENTURISTA
Pinoy Adventurista is a travel blog that aims to chronicle an adventure junkie's backpacking and adventure trips, his mountaineering and running experiences and to provide an online source of travel and climbing tips and guides, information on anything Pinoy and more!
It started in 2005 with a simple personal blog on friendster and Multiply as a journal of sorts. Until 2009 when it slowly evolved into a travel blog on different tourist and "off the beaten track" destinations in the Philippines.
It seeks to encourage more people to explore and travel the Philippines more and (re)discover how beautiful our beloved country is. It’s all about the adventures, the startling panoramas, the people met, the food tasted, the ride taken and the journey to reach a destination.
Travelling is about sharing with others, either stories, tips or good times. Pinoy Adventurista aims to inspire, persuade and encourage others to live their dreams, to travel and find their own adventure of a lifetime!
It was just another blog when it started. However, it dared to be different from the rest.
