This list has been our go-to places everytime we have visitors, or new friends, especially foreigners, who like to know more about Cebu’s culture and history.Historical Museum and  Spots to VisitMuseo Sugbo…

Why my thoughts are with Brenda?

why-my-thoughts-are-with-brenda

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been exploring Mindanao with my parents one summer at a time, or as much as we can. We always make time to travel especially during school breaks when we are all free. I remember that last minute travel decision making was the most exciting thing to do. They are the reasons why I like traveling. My parents made it look so easy. We just go with a tight budget but always ended up completely happy with our vacation.And through our trips together as a family, I met Brenda.I was…

malapascua-island-ocean-clean-up

We started 2019 in a good way.My friends from Litterless PH and Orca Freedivers Philippines organized an Ocean Clean Up in Malaspascua Island, Cebu. It was a great way to start the new year and definitely a good way to make a small (or maybe big) impact to our environment.It is a cause that we all support and we believe in.Everyone was so hyped to participate in this Ocean Cleap Up!We teamed up with the government officials in Malapascua who were very supportive and they provided us a boat for transport and a place to spend…

britania-group-of-islands-surigao-del-sur

The last time I visited Britania group of islands was in 2013, when there was no tourist. Mostly, the visitors at that time were from Surigao del Sur like us, and from the nearby provinces.Fast forward from now, I visited the islets again and a lot has changed. From small boats to big island hopping boats, from no crowd to tons of people flocking in each island. I guess time flies really fast and I guess it is safe to say that news travels faster than time.So if you want to visit these islands, here’s a comprehensive…

lanuza-first-surfing-trip

AUTHOR’S NOTE: This post was originally published on June 24, 2016. I added some information that are more relevant for those who will visit Lanuza, Surigao del Sur.When I was a kid, I always thought that the ocean was dangerous and beautiful at the same time. Imagine those big waves rushing to the shore with strong wind blowing through the coconut trees. What a paradise! But for a child who grew up in a small town facing the pacific ocean, the sea was a tease to play with but a warning to stay safe. Having that love-hate…

freediving-in-lambug-beach-badian

It has been over a year since I started freediving. I shared my first freediving experience here in the blog and I can’t believe that for only a year, I already did a lot! (That’s according to me. HAHA)I just want to share with you that it is one of the fun outdoor activities I tried. I always tell everyone that they should try it too. I’m like a saleslady, selling my product to every single person I’m talking with. I have been asking my friends, even people I just met who like going to…

road-trip-in-siargao-island

Back in Paradise!The first time I’ve been to Siargao, I was in awe how laid back the vibe and the people were. Also, I was surprised how much beauty it offers aside from its famous waves. The place left a mark in my heart and maybe that’s the reason why I keep on going back. It’s like a summer fling I want to experience again and again.In every visit, I can see big changes on the island, which for me is too fast. For example, I was in Siargao last November, then I’m back…

4-day-travel-guide-in-coron-palawan

Coron, Palawan has been in my list of places to visit here in the Philippines.Like I intended, I should visit El Nido first (which I already did last year) then Coron (which I have done this year) *insert happy dance. I got this advice from a lot of people who already visited both destinations. You might know that these two beautiful places will always be compared with each other. They are both wonderful, but as I always say, travel and experiences will always be subjective.Like for me, I can’t compare both since when I visited El Nido…

 Marine Life in Great Barrier Reef from Bundaberg, AustraliaA great place to see marine life is on the Great Barrier Reef.  We have visited many times from various points.  Recently we visited the Southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef from Bundaberg.We snorkeled in the coral reef off Lady Musgrave Island where we were surrounded by hundreds of colourful tropical fish.  On board the glass bottom boat we saw 7 turtles, some people were even lucky enough to see the turtles whilst snorkeling.On our way back on the boat to Bundaberg we had a wonderful experience where…

freediving-in-philippines-the-ultimate-list

Sometimes, all we need is to say yes.I already shared my first freediving experience here in the blog and I mentioned that my boyfriend invited me to try freediving. It was a memorable experience and I’m happy (until now) that I said YES to his invitation.Through freediving, I experienced a lot of wonderful memories and feeling that I haven’t done and felt before. Underwater is a beautiful scenery and it gives a different feeling each time I can glimpse of marine life. All I want is to stay for a much longer time with every dive…
