HomeAsiaSoutheast Asia2014: Detourista Travel Year in 40 Photos By Marcos Detourista. Updated on August 17, 2016.Get inspired to go on your next adventure with 40 photos of Marcos Detourist’s 2014 year in travel. We all tend to look at the new year as a fresh beginnings yet it is also a time to reflect on moments and experiences that had shaped our lives.In 2014, travel took a back seat on my life, while I focused on starting new projects. In the past, you would either see me on an actual trip or prepping for a series of trips scheduled as far as a year in advance. My travels in the past year happened more as a surprise, which made them especially more memorable. I spent most of 2014 in Iloilo, where I had the chance to explore more of my hometown and visit nearby provinces in Western Visayas region. It’s pretty awesome to live in a city that is close to a lot of beautiful sights and itself offers many interesting things to discover. I also got to visit a couple more provinces and cities around the Philippines, and went on a family trip to Singapore, the first time that my siblings and I traveled abroad with our parents.Here are 40 photos that summarizes my 2014 year in travel. I hope you find inspiration in it for your next adventure: 1. Overlooking Malalison Island and mainland Antique in the Philippines. My first out of town trip of the year. 2. Malumpati Cold Springs in Pandan, Antique. It’s more fun in the Philippines! 3. Bamboo River Raft Cruise at the Bugang River in Pandan, Antique, Philippines. 4. Kawa Hot Bath in Tibiao, Antique, Philippines. It was more relaxing than it looks. 5. Canopy of untouched forest at Mount Madia-as in Culasi, Antique, Philippines. 6. Mossy forest at Mount Madia-as in Culasi, Antique, Philippines. 7. Tunnel of Calachuchi Trees at Nogas Island in Anini-y, Antique, Philippines.

Maanghit Cave in Libertad, Antique, Philippines. 10. Lambaklad Fishing at the Malabor Coast of Tibiao in Antique, Philippines. 11. Seco Island in Tibiao, Antique, Philippines. The almost 3-hour boat ride just to reach this island was worth it. 12. Higaonon Tribe Blessing Ritual in Limunsudan, Iligan City, Philippines. 13. Limunsudan Falls in Iligan City, Philippines. The tallest two-tiered waterfall in the country. 14. Tinago Falls in Iligan City, Philippines. Formerly, my favorite waterfall in the Philippines. 15.

My new favorite waterfall in the country. 17. Rolling Hills of Alamada, North Cotabato, Philippines. A reason in itself to visit the highland town. 18. Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mosque in Cotabato City, Philippines. 19. Malaysia’s famous landmarks built from Lego bricks at Legoland in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. A replica of iconic destinations from many countries in Asia were also represented.

Singapore Skyline with the Double Helix Bridge and Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. 21. The Supertree Grove in Gardens by the Bay, Singapore. 22. Elephant Show at the Singapore Zoo in Singapore. 23.
