Three weeks after visiting the heritage houses in Bataan, I crossed Buntun Bridge in Tuguegarao City on foot. I had no idea that I would see these two places, both shown in this Milo commercial, and that it would happen that fast. Thanks to my friend Liezel Magno, the video she shared rubbed my curiosity about the bridge. When I learned that it’s in Tuguegarao in Cagayan, I found enough reasons to make the Palaui dream happen.

That’s the reward of wandering. You come face to face with the places that only existed in the realms of your mind. These places look you in the eye and tell you you’re having the best times of your hobbit-years.

Photos of Buntun Bridge coming soon.
