Tagaytay post updated January 18, 2020 in relation to the Taal Volcanic eruption. :/ Taal volcano refers to a complex of volcanoes in Talisay, Batangas. It is within a lake which is most likely a big caldera, and there are several calderas on what appears to be the tip protruding from the volcano.
The Taal volcano is one of the spots I often get to see and take pictures of, even back when I was a high school student. Why? It’s so close to home. The town proper is 20 minutes away from where we live so it’s always a very convenient trip. The recent news of it spewing out smoke more than the usual and later on ash, saddened me. The area has been placed on Alert level 1 since last year, but not everyone heed the advice soon enough to evacuate. Thus, I’m reviving this post for some beautiful memories.
