The Cavinti Eco - Adventure Tour #CavEAT 2015 : 20 Awesome Things To Do, Explore and Discover in Cavinti (Part 1 of 2)

Sometimes I find myself figuring out the things that I love and things that I still want to do, explore, discover and accomplish during this lifetime. Maybe the Tiger - Scorpion in me is pushing me to the limits and I am hungry for more.

Last week, I was invited to attend a bloggers event that aims to promote eco-tourism in Cavinti and to explore what the town has to offer. How can I say no, this will be my first travel bloggers event and I am so excited and I can’t hide it!
