When it comes to living on the spectacular island of Fuerteventura, it’s the architecture of the buildings that provide the biggest insight into the way of life, as well as the culture, of the island’s former people. From dwelling structures to religious building, there are many different types of architecture on the island, and some of the designs remain exclusive to this small part of the world.
For me, WORK equals Travel. Every time I travel, the first thing that comes into my mind (aside from work of course) is what I can bring/buy as a souvenir or pasalubong. Yeah, I love shooting and clicking my cam and freeze moments as I do believe that these images are the best souvenir from my travels. Aside from the photographs stored in my drive, I do finding and buying products that can be displayed in our house that will make me remember the places I explored and visited. Instead of the usual printed t-shirts and mugs I prefer buying souvenirs made from indigenous materials or simply handmade products.
The Day-asan Floating Village is a unique rural community in Surigao City (the capital city of Surigao del Norte) consisting of houses on wooden stilts and coral rocks in clear water surrounded by mangrove forest. Interestingly, because of the similar features/nature the humble village got its tag as the “little Venice of Surigao City”. Less than 30 minutes and or seven kilometers away from the city proper of Surigao, the village can be reached by land or sea transportation. Instead of usual roads, getting into other houses is possible by walking and passing in narrow wooden bridges or waterways in between- plied by small banca or river boats called “baruto”.
