Biri Island Itinerary

by 7:51 AM 0 comments

The magnificent rock formations in an island in Northern Samar is so reminiscent to the Grand Canyon in North America. Who knows such sight could exist in the Philippines. The harshness of the Pacific Ocean's tidal pounding mold the island into stunning natural beauty. A testimony of the grandiosity of the Lord's creation that no man can imitate. I was supposed to come here last May 2012 but due to unforeseen circumstances it was cancelled. Good thing Marcos reminded me of this plan so I'll give it a go this time around. Anyone is welcome to tag along. Read up my itinerary it's subject to some changes to match with my companion's travel schedule.
