I took a break from soloing and dragged my folks with me on a 9-day journey in and around Panay. To kick-off our Panay Island escapade, we sought for Roxas City, the capital of Capiz, as our first stop. We’ve spent 3D/2N in Exploring Places in Roxas City on DIY. Roxas City is an emerging economic city, 460 kilometers southeast of Manila. Also known as the Seafood Capital of the Philippines, it supplies the nation with most of the freshest seafood.

Amidst the highly urbanized city of San Juan in Puerto Rico still lies the walled city of Old San Juan. Travel back in time as you wander the streets on Old San Juan. Here are some of the places that I have stumbled upon when I went on a city walk on the historic cobblestone streets.
These defenses are made of solid stone walls that had kept the city safe from invaders since the mid-1500s.
