Welcome to Boondocks and Cities!

Good day!

My name is Francis Josef C. Gasgonia, I’m an Environmental Planner (Urban and Regional Planning), Curator, and Board/ Card Game Designer. Welcome to my blog, this was created as a journal for my thoughts and wanderings about life, philosophy, adventure, Kali, and of course all about the Boondocks and Cities. I hope you enjoy what you read, and feel free to share or violently react to whatever I muse about.

Thank you and looking forward to engaging with you.

All the best!

  • Boondocks – rough country filled with dense brush, a rural area. origin from the Tagalog word = bundok or mountain, boondocks was used to describe the jungle guerrilla terrain by US servicemen that fought during the Filipino-American War.
