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.
You know you had a great childhood when you have tons of stories to tell about summer. Those crazy games you played, tricks you mastered,
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.
I was invited by AJ of Wandering Soul Scamper for another hike in Argao – Mt. Binalabag. Aside from the fact that such mountain is new to me, I really wanted to make a revenge climb out of frustration of the previous day’s hike. With AJ were Gelai and Sean of His Hidden Letters.
