August 2012? That's eight months ago! Well, time sure flies when you're having fun. 

So what has Team TRIPinas been up to? Since that last post, we found ourselves
-being chased by dogs in Batad, and swimming in the ice-cold waters of Tapiyah waterfalls
-reaching the summit of Bulusan in Sorsogon
-wine drunk-running a full marathon in Bordeaux, France on a 38-degree day
-ingesting mind-blowing vodka (with horrible, horrible food) in Moscow, Russia
-trying the Indian Railway, doing sun salutations in Benares, buying the prettiest silk scarves our wallets can afford and getting speechless and teary-eyed by the sight of the Taj Mahal
-wrestling with burly yaks on the Himalayan trail as we made our way to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar in Nepal

We have lost several luggages, spent long hours on the road/air, had our bout of Delhi belly, fought over the silliest things, almost died (thrice!) but you know what, when we look back and realize what we have all done, we'd never have it any other way.

The adventure we had was imperfectly perfect. 

We went back to work recharged and rejuvenated.  TRIPinas Season 5 was launched late October of last year. We were more than happy that we got to have more people who wanted to Explore More! the Philippines. New destinations were launched, old trips were tweaked to the delight of our followers.

As the team inches closer to the end of Season 5, we are excited to know where our itchy feet and restless mind will bring us. 

Sh, listen. Do you hear that sound? It's adventure calling! You know what that means? Time to start a-packin'!
