I’ve always preferred immersive travel experiences, as opposed to checklist cover-as-much-as-you-can types.  I like calling it slow travel.

Imagine walking through a rainforest with an actual botanist explaining the different trees and plant species you come across, or getting to know the ins and outs of the local terrain as explained by an expert geologist!

I went on a two-week solo trip all over Palawan last November, and for five days I was on a boating expedition, weaving in and out of the 150 islands of the Linapacan group in between El Nido to Coron.  Luck would have it that a marine biologist also signed up for the trip, and all 19 of us guests and crew had a grand time nitpicking her brain for answers to every sea-related question we could think of!

Here’s the itinerary for the upcoming Baler Walk.  Click to zoom in.  Baler Nature Walk 2011
