Let's Go Sago to Mount Pinatubo!

Last year, after I created this travel blog for my all my travels and R & R, I promised myself to see Mount Pinatubo. But some stuff in my life didn't go so well that I have to postpone and to postpone and to postpone every trip that I wanna do in my life. 

But one positive thought keeps lingering in my mind, and that is I will travel with all my might and promises to see the country even on an empty pocket. ^_^  And one destination that I promise myself to see... MOUNT PINATUBO.

Luckily, one trip that is just so perfect for budgeted-travelers like me is about to commence as Let's Go Sago celebrates its second year! Wee!

Congrats, Sago!

This year, one of the many travel blogs that inspired me to create my own travel blog will lend its generous hands and help its fellow travelers to see the country in a generous, heart-warming way.

If last 2008, Sago and his master, Jonel, took some bloggers to go surfing in La Union, this time, they will take us to one of the most beautiful spots now in the country - Mount Pinatubo.

Check out the itinerary that was strategically planned for us to enjoy a day at this hot spot:
