The Locals | Southern Leyte


Every place has a natural beauty to offer. It can be a calming beach, a breathtaking mountain view, or a challenging cave. We are always fascinated by every landscape we encounter during our trip. But there is something that makes a place so unique, so special - its people.

Aside from sharing with you the beautiful places I've seen and the sample itineraries I've made, I want to give you a glimpse on how the locals of a certain town survive their everyday lives. I'll be posting a series of photoblogs and call it The Locals.

For the first edition of The Locals, here are some portraits of the strangers we've met in the province of Southern Leyte.
