PPUR now officially one of the New7Wonders of Nature

destination, ppur, philippines

Remember the post I made campaigning for the Puerto Princesa Underground River? Well, it is now official + we have got yet another reason to be proud as Filipinos! The Puerto Princesa Underground River is now officially part of the New 7 Wonders of Nature. Check out the official announcement here.

Favored for its breath-taking view, for being one of the world’s longest  navigable underground river,  numerous stalactites + stalagmites, + a rich bio-diversity, PPUR is the second New 7 Wonders of Nature to be announced.

This a good day for both Palawan + the Philippines tourism, as making news about this majestic place will draw locals + tourists alike to visit the place, in turn, improving our tourism industry. I only wish I can visit PPUR with my little man very soon 🙂

musings on meanderings is now pr1!

That is right, Mr. Google had a recent update + surprises of all surprises, this travel + postcard blog is now pr1! Woot! Thanks to my 4 readers. This baby has only been around for a little while + I am glad that it now has a pagerank of 1 🙂

I also cannot wait to share a lot of beautiful postcards I have received through the mail lately, they are absolute pick-me-ups + I look forward to telling you all about them!
