For my first travel out of town this year, I remember going to Palawan. I went there for work but I really enjoyed a lot, especially because of the first-hand encounter with giraffes and zebras! Yes! Lots of them in Calauit Safari Park in Calauit Island, Busuanga, Palawan. It is a wildlife reserve wherein we can see animals came from Africa, specifically from Kenya.
It was in the time of President Ferdinand Marcos that those animals were brought here to support then Kenyan President in preserving their animals from the wild. And there, until now we can visit and meet them eye-to-eye; the giraffes and zebras, and some other more in this island.

Day 1 at the SAFARI
DAY 4, January 31, 2014: Day 2 at the SAFARI Morning
Afternoon came and we were bound to Manila. More than the stress and tireless travel, I have enjoyed the trip. It was my first time to encounter these animals that we thought are wild, but the truth is… they’re endangered. I have loved more the wild and everything in it.
I lost the job that gave me the opportunity to travel a lot. But I promised myself that this will not stop me from travelling more place and capture memories through photographs.
