Philippines – Mint Chocolate Hills (Bohol)

Bohol, the Philippines I love mint chocolate, so I had to write you this post. Chocolate Hills in Bohol are “brown” during the dry season, other times they’re rather greenish, so they are “mint chocolate hills”. Doesn’t it sound delicious?

Philippines – Chocolate Hills (Bohol)

Bohol, the Philippines The beautiful hills you see in today’s picture have a sweet name “Chocolate Hills”. Unfortunately, they aren’t made of chocolate. They’re covered by grass that turns brown in dry season, that’s why people called them as Chocolate Hills. There are almost 1300 hills in Bohol! Their height ranges from 40 to 120 meters.

Philippines – Dynamite

Banaue, the Philippines When I was going to rice terraces in Banaue, I had “unexpected attractions”. People were building a road, and using dynamite to destroy some rocks. I have to say, it was first time in my life, seeing something like that (today’s photo). It was interesting to observe it, but also a bit scary while hearing the explosions… The post Philippines – Dynamite appeared first on Traveling Rockhopper....

Philippines – Getting to Banaue

Banaue, the Philippines When you want to visit Banaue, be aware, that you may have to walk a bit (or a bit more). I guess, it depends on the weather conditions, e.g., strong rains or landslides can make the path more complicated. When I was there, the road was under construction, so our walk was even longer than usual. The post Philippines – Getting to Banaue appeared first on Traveling Rockhopper....

Philippines – Manila

Mt Pinatubo, the Philippines Manila is the capital of the Philippines and it’s its the most populous city. I guess, the majority of tourists enter the Philippines in Manila and then visit the capital. I didn’t have so much time in Manila, however from that what I’ve seen, I wasn’t really impressed. But, it’s a good starting point for many trips. The post Philippines – Manila appeared first on Traveling Rockhopper....

Philippines – Visa

Taal Volcano, the Philippines When I travel somewhere, I’m always happy if I don’t’ have to deal with the bureaucracy to organize a visa. Well, sometimes it’s very easy to get a visa, but for other countries it may be very problematic. To enter the Philippines, many nationalities don’t need a visa; and can stay there up to 30 days. That’s very convenient. The post Philippines – Visa appeared first on Traveling Rockhopper....

Philippines – Jeepney

the Philippines In the Philippines, you’ll see many of these funny, colorful cars. They are very popular, not only among the tourists. They’re made from US military jeeps left over from World War II. They are called Jeepney. If you’re in the Philippines, you just have to take a ride with Jeepney. But be aware, they may take many (tooooo many ) passengers, even over 50!

Philippines – Natural Disasters

Mt Pinatubo, the Philippines There is something more, you should have in mind before planning your trip to the Philippines. The Philippines are located on the Pacific Ring of Fire and close to the equator. That makes earthquakes, typhoons, monsoon rains, floods or landslides, and volcanic eruptions more likely to occur in the Philippines. It’s never boring there… The post Philippines – Natural Disasters appeared first on Traveling Rockhopper....

Philippines – Is it dangerous?

Taal Volcano, the Philippines Is it dangerous to visit the Philippines? Well, it may be… If you’re lucky, everything may be fine; but you have to be aware of terrorists attacks or kidnaps. Some regions of the Philippines, especially Mindanao, should be avoided by travelers. Currently, you can also find warnings concerning Zika virus in the Philippines. Just be aware of everything before traveling! Of course, “something” may happen everywhere, but some places are more dangerous.

Russia – Final impression

Caucasus Mountains, Russia October is almost over, so it’s time to say “Bye bye Russia” on my blog. How did you like my travel impressions this month? Russia is a large country, and I’ve seen only a tiny part of it. However, I can recommend places I’ve visited, i.e., Moscow and Saint Petersburg (with their vicinity), and Caucasus Mountains. I hope to visit Russia again because of two sites: the Lake Baikal and Kamchatka. What kind of place in Russia would you recommend the most? p.s. Tomorrow we’re “flying” to a warm country. Stay tuned! The post Russia – Final impression appeared first on Traveling Rockhopper....

Russia – Lakes

Caucasus Mountains, Russia It’s not exactly a lake on today’s picture, but it was probably the closest what I have. I wanted to write a few words about the Lake Baikal. I haven’t visited it yet, but it’s still on my list. The only problem, I dream of seeing it in winter… Maybe, you’ve seen amazing pictures of Baikal taken in winter? Unfortunately, I almost feel cold even from thinking about it. Lake Baikal is the deepest and biggest lake in world; one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. It’s located in Siberia. Have you seen the Lake Baikal (maybe even in winter)? The post Russia – Lakes appeared first on Traveling Rockhopper....

Russia – Mount Elbrus

Mount Elbrus, Caucasus Mountains, Russia Do you know, what’s the highest mountain in Europe? Well, it’s a bit tricky question. Depending, how you define the border between Europe and Asia, one can say Mont Blanc (Monte Bianco, 4808 m above sea level) or Mount Elbrus (5642 m above sea level). Let’s say here, that Mount Elbrus is the highest mountain in Russia (Caucasus) and Europe; and Mont Blanc is the highest mountain in Western Europe and in the European Union. Elbrus, as you see in today’s picture, has two summits; they are inactive volcano domes (5642 m and 5621 m). The post Russia – Mount Elbrus appeared first on Traveling Rockhopper....
