My awesome journey across the Philippines, exploring local food, culture and landscapes. Watch my journey from Manila to Banaue done in this June.
Geared up and ready for the adventure on my Dominar!
Reached the famed Walled City. Truly a hidden Spanish gem in the heart of Manila.
Zipping through some amazing curvy roads. Wow! What a lush green view.
Made it to Café Katerina, Sierra Madre, a popular pit stop for bikers. Time to dig into my favourite breakfast, Tapsilog – beef and garlic rice.
Reached the ‘Valley of Colours’. The lovely colourful houses look like the favelas of Brazil.
Called the nature’s best-kept secret of Ilocos Sur. Couldn’t explore much as rain had other plans.
Beach port of Villa Quirino, the perfect spot for my new profile picture.
Made new friends in the cute little town of Ambucao Santiago.
Had authentic Bulalo at a local food joint. And it was heavenly.
Finally! I am here. The famous pie place that was always on my list. Ordered a large lip smacking pie all for myself.
A break after a thrilling ride. Calmed myself by spending some time in the peaceful surroundings of this famous church.
You really have to come to this place to feel the vibe here. I was surprised to know that this tradition is followed even today by certain tribes.
It is the ‘Stairway to Heaven’ in the true sense. The lush green rice terraces of Banaue. Also hung out with the tribes with colourful dresses and headgears.
Chilling with the Ifugao tribe and their unique wooden scooters. Trust me these beauties have some speed and I experienced it myself on a ride downhill.
The blissful trip finally comes to an end. And this is my motograph of the ride to the ‘Stairway to Heaven’ from Manila to Banaue.
