A surprising long holiday was proclaimed and I was like–How come I didn’t know there’s a long weekend coming? Haha! Right then and there, I searched for touristy places and found the beautiful sandbar of Sumilon as an ideal quick getaway.
As early as 4:30am, Joemar and I headed to South Bus terminal to catch the earliest possible trip to Oslob. I normally get bored with land trips, so I was just sleeping the whole time. Joemar woke me up when we reached Dalaguete and decided to eat our only food supply (crispy chicken sandwich from Mcdo) Hi there McDonalds! Haha!=D We talked about our future trips while watching the scenic coastal towns in the south. After 4 hours and a half, we finally arrived at Sumilon docking station.
I am a type of traveler who does not care too much on accommodation. I’m always comfortable staying in a tent or just a small kubo as long as there’s a public comfort room.:) But for this year’s trip to Camotes island, I stayed at Mangodlong Paradise Resort.
For the third time, the travel buff visited Camotes Island! This is a company paid trip, so I would like to say thank you to my ROC family. 🙂
Like most companies, we also have our yearly company outing. We were asked for suggestions. They prefer an overnight stay that would only take an hour or two from the city. The travel buff gave 2 suggestions.
My friends decided to spend a weekend somewhere with a beach but should not be far from the city, so we head over to agoda and other booking sites. Mactan island offers a lot of beautiful resorts. Continue reading →
Who would not want a taste of Amsterdam? Yes, you read it correctly. A mini Amsterdam located in Sirao, Cebu City. I was amazed with the awe-inspiring beauty of nature shared by a friend on social media and I found out that it was just few minutes away from the city. So together with my friends, we went to Sirao. At first, we were hesitant because we heard that it will be harvested on that same day. But there’s no harm in trying, they said.:) After few minutes of travel, we arrived in the place and saw the 5000sq meters celosia farm. Entrance fee is P20 and you can picture all you want. And please..be careful not to step on the flowers.
After a busy days at work, you want to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life for a moment. But considering your little amount of time and money, you can’t just pack your things and go out-of-town. It requires time specially if you travel with someone.
So, where would be the best place to visit instead? I personally suggest Tops Cebu. It’s a 20 minutes drive from the city with an extra uphill adventure.Continue reading →
