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.

Coron: Calauit Safari Park

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 several 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. I don’t like it when animals are kept in cages but here in Calauit Safari Park, they roam freely.

My boyfriend Joemar who also has a serious case of wanderlust, his sister Joey, the blogger behind memorablelines.co, and my office mate Queenie.

Short Escape: Cebu’s Mini Amsterdam

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
