How many provinces have you visited?

Most of us here have traveled extensively (locally and abroad), I'm just curious how many of the 80 provinces plus Metro Manila of our beloved Philippines have you had the privelege to visit. Also relate any experience (the good, the bad and the ugly) you had with your visits.

I hope this thread will be an enlightening and educational process. Thanks!
