After our backpacking trip to Philippines in February this year, we decided to have a gathering in Lumut to view all our photos. At the same time, we took the opportunity to explore the river leading to Lumut, and have good sea-food and fellowship during the two days.

  1. I'd always wanted to kayaks in this mangrove area.
    Now i'm thinking to do it this year.
    Perhaps ask my friend who's the boss of this apartment to set up a kayak department for tourist here.
    Got to do it this year around.
    need more support for adventure people as well.

  2. Kayaking in Lumut is always my dream going to come true this year.
    I'm going to make a trip down there once I'd got the green light to the kayaks.

  3. Indeed adventurous. You have shared every moment in photos of your trip to Lumut. I enjoyed your seeing pictures which is telling story and way of celebrating holidays moments.
    I got learning that being in group it adds more fun in rejoicing.

  4. Wow. Nice post. I am a big fan of Kayaking in the Philippines. Can't wait to try it gain and again. I'm glad that you guys love kayaking in your place. Enjoy.
