The Craft Room | Travel Journal Kalanggaman Island

On our recent adventure to the southern part of Leyte, Kalanggaman Island, I decided to create a travel journal after we returned to Shanghai as I didn’t get much chance to do it while there. Although this island is off the main island, somehow it still is part of Palompon.

Getting there from Tacloban is not as difficult as I thought it to be. We hired a private van from Tacloban, which took about 2.5 hours. And then had a boat waiting for us in Palompon to take us to the island, which was another 1 hour. While waiting for our boat, the skies started to get dark and was worried we were in for bad weather. We encountered choppy waters and rain as we sailed off. Was so relieved as we neared the island, we were greeted with clear blue skies! Yes! And wow! The clear waters, white sand beaches and awesome weather was the perfect setting to relax!

Here are some photos from my travel journal using both my passport size TN and a Field Notes that has been cropped to size. I used supplies from here and here.


I thought I’d break the monotony of showing photos and created a short video about my travel journal along with some notes or captions. Hope you like it.
