HAPPY 2nd YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!!!

I can’t believe another year had passed since mom and I started this Blog. Today marked that moment when we took a leap and said we would follow through something out of our comfort zone.

Yes, we love to travel. But our travels are more like a personal experience than something we share to the world. However, more on the facts that can be searched up through our good friend google, we would love to share the emotions we get through each our destinations.

Puppy Mood: Extremely thankful. WOof~

Puppy Facts: 

  • About Us:
    Puppy Trails Ph
    was a product of creative minds of siblings who love to travel, know cultures, taste new food and get to see the world up close and personal. It was more on a channel to share about destinations focusing in Negros Island and showcase more of what it can offer, for now.IMG_20160710_101645.jpg
    There are a lot of other travel blogs who offer “how to get there” and “facts”, however, Puppy Trails Ph wanted to offer a fun twist to it. This is why the blog is written from a point of view of a puppy, Cadbury where it is more like he is talking to you than being surrounded by formal writing.
  • What We Feature:
    Negros Island is surely more than just the endless fields of sugarcane. It is about diversity of people, language and destinations. The island has white sand beaches to beautiful mountainous spot where you can climb and be with the clouds. Being a resident of Bacolod City, Puppy Trails Ph wanted to showcase more of the island’s natural beauty and food tourism spots.
    Puppy Nomnoms is where we feature one favorite food choice in a place we eat. There are more food there restaurant to offer but we prefer to have one we like the most.

    Puppy Adventures are the main blog posts. This is where we feature a travel destination. Offering a more personal touch to why and what to see in places we visit, Puppy Trails would want our readers to share our excitement rather than telling you what to do.

  • In the Future:
    We have been blessed to have travels out side of the island and the country. We wish to have more of these soon enough! Woof!

Puppy Seal of Approval:

This is our favorite part of the Blog. In places we visit, sometimes the little things that matters are neglected because of the hype they see in the net. We would like to share that having a lazy afternoon basking under the sun or taking an extra effort to climb up a hill would even make your visit an unforgettable one.

All these are sealed with love and a Pawprint! Woof!!! Would you come and join me to explore the world??

We would like to thank the people behind this blog. Those who supported us by teaching us what to do and their patience when we were starting off.

  • My mom: For the support and the love. I can’t begin to thank you enough.
  • My brother: For all the travels and more to come.
  • The Hayops: My mom’s group of friends who are crazy enough to go out with us.
  • Our readers: Super thank you. Our constant visitors. Though we didn’t make this for the pings and hits, having to see people read our posts make us push for more content.
  • And Papa God for keeping us safe and blessing us with more travels.

2018 Planner! Now Where to Next?

So every year, the quest for the perfect planner that works for the lifestyle of mum and I poses a challenge. This year, we planned to have more Puppy Adventures for 2018. We have a little windows for travel so we are like on an assignment! It is amazing that we found a planner that have that in mind~ With the year of the Earth Dog as a Chinese Lunar Year turns – how much more good vibes could you ask for?

IMG_20180106_231220_652.jpg

#WhereToNext2018 came up with this planner having every travelling puppers in mind with a theme of #OnAssignment. With a sleek brown leather cover with embossed branding and it is just the perfect size of our Tablet, it fits perfectly in our travel bag too!

Having a dotted journal gives you enough creative freedom to design your pages to fit for your needs. And they have included more than enough pages for you to scribble down your travel itinerary and plans~ Inside you have a map of the Philippines that you can color or shade in order to see if you have visited all the 81 provinces~

20180106_123519.jpg

Full span pictures in between months are beautiful~ I love this page. It reminds me to listen to mum~

January and February pages are all swamped already! We are looking forward for the rest of the year and each of ’em pages will contain a documentation of our fun filled 2018! I commend those people behind this creation. Proud to be Pinoy and love the hearts poured in to this.

Shout out to my friends @laranovales2 and @Lukecepheid for being equally planner geeks like us. It pays to have these bunch. They understand the importance of having a planner that works for our lifestyle. Do check out their pages~

WELCOMING THE YEAR OF PUPPIES!!!

Wooof! Has it been a year already?
Indeed time flies! I know It is quite late but…..

2018-01-06_15.46.32.jpg

 

2017 was a challenge. It was very hard for both mum and I. However, looking back, it has only made our family stronger and grew in faith. Would you let puppy run his little tongue and share a little about our year?

  1. FIRST INTERNATIONAL DESTINATION!!! I never felt so small in this huge huge world. Good thing I got mum. She taught me how to prepare for this and we went all over Bangkok, Thailand~ It will always have a special space in my heart. BUT!! We won’t stop there! Mum’s brother promised that we will have more trips soon enough! We are looking forward to it! I hope we can meet some of you too!

  1. BUSY BUSY PAWRENT. Mum warm me that come May 2017, she will be very busy. She had barely some time to sleep – all the more for trips. We weren’t able to post much then because of her schedule. You ask why? Let us say, mum is running after a dream. And I am equally proud and supportive of her endeavors. All these are for me and our more trips to come.

2018-01-06_20.16.20.jpg

  1. AN ANGEL IN PAPA GOD’S ARMY. Mum and I lost a great person but subsequently gained an angel to look after us while we take every step towards our goals. Mum’s dad, or my GrandPawrent (lolo) passed away September last year.  Being in out of ICU and the hospital – as we see him slowly wither away from a big strong man that we know was so hard for us. It really took a blow on mum. She made sure all comfort and management possible and afforded be given to him but still… his body succumbed to the disease. We will always remember you GrandPawpa. I will take care for mum and everybody like you always does.

2018-01-06_20.09.14.jpg

  1. GROWING IN FRIENDSHIPS AND WISDOM AMIDST OF CHALLENGES. We have gained many opportunities and more friends. Remember when we thought we lost our WordPress account? and then someone hacked out IG account?  Good thing we got great friends who helped us to start back up.

So now we are ushering a new year!!! TO all of you who have been part of our 2017 – WE CAN NEVER BE MORE GRATEFUL.

Like what mum always say, “Things happen for a reason. You can’t control what life throws at you – but you can control how you react. Ultimately, it will be the basis of your results.”

2018 is the Year of the Dog!

What more positive signs you need?
It is our year, Puppy Trippers!!!!

I hope we could share more adventures together!!

I would love to hear for you! Woof!

 

SEEK, PUPPY! MY TOP 5 WATERFALLS OF NEGROS ISLAND

 

Everybody will be flocking the beaches this summer. Crowded shores, rowdy groups and fully-booked resorts – then what? The sun is high up and you want to escape the hassle? Then this puppy explorer might just have something you’d like to consider.

Beat the Heat of summer with My Top 5 Waterfalls of Negros!

  1. MAMBUKAL MOUNTAIN RESORT Murcia, Negros Occidental:

    Mambu11
  • A common recreational destination, it is just an hour away from Bacolod City in the municipality Murcia. This place brags – not only one – but SEVEN waterfalls!!! The trek going all the way to the 7th falls is worth it. You get to bathe on those cool fresh waters after a short hike up. Open even for beginner, this one is for list of must-go this summer.
  1. MAG-ASO FALLS, Barangay Oringao, kabankalan City, Negros Occidental:

    2016-06-17_17.05.06[1]

  • Feeling like stepping up to your chasing waterfalls game? Then Mag-Aso Falls is
    perfect. Located about a three hours ride south from Bacolod City, all the travel is worth the view and experience. Come and dive in those deep glorious turquoise waters of Mag-Aso Falls. The basin is deep enough to cater those who would dare to do a “Cliff dive” from the little caves.
  1. GAWAHON MOUNTAIN RESORT, Victorias City, Negros Occidental:

    13898265_10210304850528724_1843957617_o

  • A little more toned down and less commercialized. You would least likely find this place crowded. This place also takes pride of their seven different falls. A little walking distance from one after the other, truly this one is a nature lover’s treat.
  1. PATA-AN FALLS, Barangay Mailum, Bago City, Negros Occidental:

    20000316_085801

  • DO you want to spend a day just sitting and enjoying icy cold water shower? Then Pataan is just the right choice. Unlike the usual, the falls fall on a rock formation and shaded by a century old tree. You can spend a day just to relax sitting under the falls to extinguish the heat.
  1. GUINTUBDAN FALLS, Ara-al Road, Occidental, La Carlota City, Negros Occidental:

    20000316_090045

  • If you love the great outdoors, hiking, forests, swimming and random meet-and-greet with farm animals, Guintubdan is just for you. Approximately two hours and a half bus ride, you get to meet this splendor tucked in a quaint place of Ara-al. With a total of 6 falls and one spring, you get to exhaust you day swimming in the cool waters and beautiful mountain top scenery. You will be left with a filled heart and happy soul after hiking time of 15 mins to 45 mins from the different falls.

Remember, the beach is not the only place you could spend the summer buzz in. Sometimes, you just need a puppy nose for roads less traveled and a mum saying, SEEK!

Where are you off to next, puppy trippers? We’d like to hear from you, so don’t forget to leave a comment down below. Who knows…We might just be dropping by to explore your suggestion!

Woof!

My mom and I decided to post a notice here. Apparently, what started as something we thought as your usual spam bugs all over the net is not as what it seems.

To those who are following our Instagram Account, this person might post or respond nasty thing about our beloved followers, my mom and even my brother so we thought it is only prudent for us to inform everyone about this incident.

It is a constant reminder that we must get better… be more consistent and give more happy pupper posts for you to enjoy.
