Yes, I am back in the blogosphere! I had a very nice vacation in some islands here in our country. I spent most of my time with my family and also visited some of our relatives. But this time, I would like to share our Pantas Class adventure, together with Fr. Raul and Fr. Ronnie as we journeyed through the waters and hiked for hours just to see the crater of the world famous Taal Volcano.
No, this is not yet the Taal Volcano! This is what our tour guide said to us.
The crater can be found on the other part of the mountain.
This is the other side of the mountain.
Yes, there are people living peacefully at the foot of the volcano.
Most of them are fisher folks.
Ahh, the sight is breath-taking!
To reach the crater, we had to endure the mini-sandstorm created by our own sandals.
Frt. Gil, Frt. Jojo and Fr. Raul rested for a while.
Lo and behold, the Taal Volcano crater!
In this very crater, a small island is growing.
It was a great experience to see the Taal crater.
Just like every nature-friendly mountaineer,
we took nothing but pictures;
we left nothing but footprints;
we killed nothing but time.
