White Water Tubing, An Extreme Adventure

White water tubing is considered as an extreme adventure. It is the newest tourist attraction in the province of Albay. With this event, adrenalin rush, maintaining body balance while riding with the rapidly falling water amidst the boulders, holding tightly with the ropes fastened to the tube, particularly when passing a series of rapids is experienced. Indeed, it is an exciting and challenging activity. It’s a challenge not only to one’s stamina but also  to one’s sense of adventure as well.

Vera Falls, one of nature’s wonder

          Many years ago, I heard about the presence of a beautiful falls, which is considered as a  hidden treasure of Malinao, Albay.  It’s one of the favorite place of Back packers, mountaineers and adventurists.  Calendars, particularly those from Land Bank of the Philippines, often highlighted the said falls.  I became curious and wanted to see the falls myself.
