I love traveling! Going around the world to explore different sites and exploring the different cultures of other people has always been my passion.
However in order to be considered to be a certified “jetsetter” I should consider exploring first my own native land. (Compounded by the fact that I still could not afford to travel around the world hehehehe perhaps when I retire someday)
Corruption and a lousy government system aside, the Philippines is such a beautiful country. They say that when God made the Philippine islands he was so fascinated with it that he made 7,000 more of it.
It is so ironic that Filipinos travel abroad to experience different sites and cultures. There is so much to see in our country and so much culture to experience that I believe it would take a lifetime to explore everything. As the song goes, Filipinos should not be “strangers” in their own native land.
The Philippine department of Tourism has come up with an ad campaign to encourage domestic tourism. The ad embodied in a song is entitled as “Biyahe Tayo.” In English it means “Let’s travel.” Recently this has become one of my favorite songs. The talented Filipino artists that sang this song did not receive any compensation for doing this. They are simply doing this out for love of their country. The song has a very catchy tune and uses some Filipino native instruments. It features the different tourist’s spots that you can visit in the Philippines and showcases the finest of Philippine culture.
So what are you waiting for, click on the youtube video below and enjoy the song. (I’ll come up with an English translation later on) Make sure that you when you travel you have updated life insurance 🙂
