Experience Quezon 2016: Discovering New Destinations

The province of Quezon has always been close to my heart. As a matter of fact, my X chromosomes are from the bloodlines of the hardworking natives of the province while my Y chromosomes, on the other hand, are from the oragon people of Albay. 

That's why, when I got an email from the Quezon Tourism Office inviting me to participate in a media tour of their province, I immediately said yes. For me, it's like coming back home and exploring each part of the hose more thoroughly.
