Beyond the Tourist Spots of Panglao Island

This is not how I pictured the island of Panglao. It was supposed to be full of fun and adventure – the way my classmates enthusiastically described it back then. But definitely there was no fun in chasing those poor dolphins. There was no adventure in going to that Virgin Island when the island has sunk already. So I was left to wonder on what really makes Panglao Island worth the visit and why people kept coming back to this place despite the crowd and environmental issues it’s facing. … More Beyond the Tourist Spots of Panglao Island

An unexpected trip to Anda de Boracay after we crashed a Wedding

True to its name, Anda de Boracay resembles to Boracay’s white sand beach (though not as fine). As it was a weekend and the place was opened to public, there was a quite number of people on the beach that day. Nonetheless, it didn’t spoil the beauty that the beach already has and the fun we had. We stayed until after and saw how the place can transform into something magical. As the tides change, we saw a number of species hidden underwater. Though the sunset on the area isn’t as majestic as of the real Boracay, it was still such a sight to behold. … More An unexpected trip to Anda de Boracay after we crashed a Wedding

Was it wrong to visit Sambawan Island?

Reflecting on it, Sambawan Island opened a lot of opportunities for me. It made me connect with other bloggers, hikers, and people whom I would never have met had I declined Glister’s invitation. Indeed, you’ll never grow if you stayed on shores. As they say it: only rough seas make great sailors. Once in a while, you have to be bold and take risks. It’s either you win or you learn. It would take a lot of convincing because it’s really scary. But if you take risk, you also get rid of the uncertainty, of the ‘what-is’. Probably it won’t work exactly the way you hope it to be, at least you didn’t sit around playing safe while immense possibilities lie in the corner. … More Was it wrong to visit Sambawan Island?

BEWARE: Everything in Catanduanes is Under Construction

After feasting our eyes on the beauty of Mt. Mayon, my colleagues and I decided to visit its nearby island province – Catanduanes. It was formerly known as the “Land of the Howling Winds” because of its close proximity to the Pacific, making it a typhoon prone area. But when the coast is clear, Catanduanes is truly a must-visit most especially for outdoor lovers. It has great spots for surfing, beaching, hiking, and Visita Iglesia. … More BEWARE: Everything in Catanduanes is Under Construction

When some things are not meant to be at Lintaon Peak

But aside from sunset, Lintaon Peak is best enjoyed at night because of its 16,000 LED roses that light up when darkness comes. If you’ve read about my post of Jardin Necitas in Bohol, you’ll know my growing desire to witness these buds glow at night. We were quietly marveling the sunset when out of nowhere the wind became stronger and drops of water began pouring. Wilma and Agustine immediately secured baby Amarise while Badeth instantly assisted Nanay in going back to the function hall where the entrance is located. … More When some things are not meant to be at Lintaon Peak
