Travel Dispatch - Banaue/Batad, Philippines / by Matt Treager

I'm not always the best when it comes to keeping people in the loop, so here's my way of making it up to those following along. The next few posts will each be centered around a location, or region, and a selection of photos from these areas. There will be more posts coming in the next few days as we are resting in Georgetown, Malaysia. I will also be "unveiling" a travel portrait project I'm piecing together. Enjoy the photos!

Today's post is a follow up to my last one from the rice terraces in Batad and Banaue.
