I am not sure if this video has been launched or shown before but I only got to watch this a few days ago and I can’t seem to find it on YouTube (can you?). Thus, I downloaded it from Department of Tourism’s website (DOT) to share to you. This is the longest version of IT’S MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES campaign that I have seen so far from DOT.
This video does not have that sophisticated and expensive looking editing but not one of the statements in it was untrue. I am proud of the Philippines and this video made me want to even travel my own country more. It felt good to be watching it over and over again.
So, anyone wants to go to Siargao, Dumaguete, Samar, Cagayan de Oro, Sagada, Batanes or Ilo-ilo? I want! Haha.
May I just say, these are just really great videos. I love the Move video most because for me, the editing was just superb. Not to mention it is very inspirational for a travel enthusiast such as myself. It was just too many places to squeeze in just one minute! It was amazing.
Those three words in the title should just be the words to live by in order to have a satisfying and fruitful life. It is amazing how videos can affect others, and me creating a post about it certainly proves that these did something to me. These videos are just the bomb.
Warning about the Eat video though, if you watch it in the middle of the night, it might make you really hungry. So make sure you’re stuffed.
Got these from Rick Mereki’s Vimeo account. I’m guessing he’s the one in these videos.
Fine, I rest my case. During our experience, the water was brown due to the rain the night before. So, muddy water rafting or wild water rafting it is (instead of white water rafting)! Hehe.
I’m always up for adventure and doing crazy things I’ve never done before. That is not to say I don’t get scared. As a matter of fact, I always go through these crazy adventures terrified. I’m too afraid of heights and I don’t like unpredictability. That being said, it takes a ton of effort to talk to myself to be calm and convince myself to just go through whatever it is that I will regret at the end if I didn’t.
And so this was one of the entries in my bucket list. White water rafting sounded to me like a lot of fun. It seemed exhilarating to be going through that entire experience, especially hearing the gushing water all throughout. I was initially planning to try this if not in Cagayan de Oro, then maybe in New Zealand. But as life would happen, nothing is ever predictable. Thus, I gave this one a go. Also, this was included in the voucher that we availed.
We were dropped-off at the same place where the Crocodile Farm was. The guests were gathered inside, where gears (life jacket, paddles, helmets, rafts, etc.) rest and other amenities such as locker cabinets and water were. A television in this area was playing a video on loop about the water rafting happened in the past.
