I’ve been planning this trip since last year but it’s always the time and the limited transportation that hinders me from visiting this place. Also, I waited for my drawing friends to become available. =D But I’m glad I made it this year without planning too much. In fact, I bought some of my camping essentials and a ferry ticket on the spot. Thanks to my spontaneous boyfriend who made this trip possible. He knows I won’t go camping without him. 🙂 Lol Continue reading →
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.
From the astonishing beaches of Coron, who would have thought that there’s also a piece of Africa in this place? Months before this trip, I made a thorough research about the activities and the must-see places. I read some blogs and found out that going to this island is expensive. Yes, it is! This trip costs 2,500 with breakfast, lunch, and snacks. But I promise this is worth the splurge. After all, you can always make money but you can’t always make memories. =D Ok. So moving on… We scheduled this trip on our day 3 of stay and I got so excited to finally see a giraffe and a zebra in person for the first time. I haven’t been to any Zoo and I am not a fan of Zoos either. I don’t like it when animals are kept in cages but Calauit Safari Park is an exemption because here, they roam freely.
Coron has a lot of extraordinary island hopping spots, so I got confused on what tour package to choose. All the places here are so beautiful that I wanted to visit all of them in just 1 day. If only I had enough money, I will stay here longer.:) We opted for the “Ultimate Island hopping tour” which includes a visit to Siete Pecados, Kayangan Lake, Beach 91, CYC Beach, Barracuda Lake, and Twin Lagoon. It actually hurts a little inside to miss some of the destinations (Malcapuya Island, Banana Island, etc.) but it’s okay, I gotta go back someday. 🙂
Palawan is the country’s cleanest and most peaceful city. I have witnessed that during my 4 days stay in Coron. It has been dubbed the “last ecological frontier” in honor of its unique ecological balance. It has a land area of 1.5 million hectares, composed of 1,780 islands and islets, and subdivided into 23 municipalities. One of these municipalities is Coron which is located in the Calamianes Group of islands in Northern Palawan.
Kalanggaman island has always been part of my travel list, and I will not let this summer ends without visiting the island, so the travel buff made a quick travel plan. I invited random friends to go with me but due to circumstances beyond our control, only 4 of us confirmed and survived. My boyfriend Joemar who also has a serious case of wanderlust, his sister Joey, the blogger behind memorablelines.co, and my office mate Queenie.
Looking for a beach where you can take a quick dip?…Visit Pandanon Island!
Pandanon is part of Bohol and has almost 2,ooo residents. If you’re from Cebu, the only possible way to get there is to charter a boat from Hadsan in Mactan. Boat rental ranges from 2k-8k depending on its capacity. This includes a visit to Talima and Nalusuan where you can go snorkeling. Continue reading →
Welcome, 2016. It becomes my tradition to go to the beach or just travel every new year. Why? I believe this has something to do with our beliefs like eating “biko” a Filipino rice cake and all sugary foods for a sweet life throughout the year. So, if I start a year with the beach, this simply means countless beach days the entire year. Aha!Nice! =D. I packed my things and make sure my camera is fully charged, sunblock, shades, bikinis etc… I booked the earliest trip which was 8am and after almost 3 hours of travel with my boyfriend, we were welcomed by a pristine white sand beach in Bohol.
Bohol is a popular tourist destination with its numerous unspoiled beaches and extraordinary attractions.Continue reading →
On top of my travel list is the powdery white sand beach and the famous destination for relaxation. Boracay Island! Boracay is separated in three stations. The station 1 is where the famous Mama Mary is located and is less crowded. Station 2 is for party goers. Station 3 is an underdeveloped paradise. Expect a long walk if you want to go sightseeing on the 3 stations.
