Travel Guide : Set a Goal! - "The Two-thirds Travel Challenge"

Set a goal for yourself and do it!

After a thorough research, I found out that we actually have 79 provinces, not 71 which I previously mentioned. Here are the provinces I've been to (in no particular order) and plans to visit in the coming months.

Provinces I've set my foot into:
1. Ilocos Sur
2. Mountain Province
3. La Union
4. Pangasinan
5. Tarlac
6. Zambales
7. Pampanga
8. Bulacan
9. Bataan
10. Metro Manila
11. Rizal
12. Cavite
13. Laguna
14. Batangas
15. Quezon
16. Camarines Sur
17. Albay
18. Oriental Mindoro
19. Cebu
20. Iloilo
21. Guimaras
22. Negros Occidental

So far, I've already been to 22 out of 79 provinces in our country or 27.85 %. My personal challenge of being able to set foot on at least two-thirds of the provinces in the Philippines in the next 5 years is still a long way to go. =D

  18. Love people who can tell their ideas clearly. Thank you.

  19. I/we appreciate reading your blog, special interest on visiting all the provinces in the philippines, for now we do virtual hopping trips to our desired destination. We've done 2 major road trips and several short ones. Its better for kids to enjoy the trip not being drag from one province at a time, that a week stay is preferred so far were happy to have gone to luzon, Visayas and confirm trip to Mindanao. We've covered all the famous landmarks...and saw on your blog the possibility of hiking mountains as one of our goals, since were into bird watching, beaches maybe try some of the water falls you visited. Thank you for your blog as a source of info in our virtual travel some provinces we never had a chance to discover, maybe one day, given the time and budget.. Would love to go to our dream destination Batanes..Congratulations for completing your challenge for travelling to all 81 provinces, hope we can do it too in 5 years time you see were slow travelers, wanting to immerse more on the culture, people, their language, food, and seeing the vast natural historic tourist spots. Hope you continue putting historical backgrounds of the places you visited saves me time. Thanks once again.
