Thoughts before and after descending into 22-meter deep with just one breath

at

After so many months of not diving. I told my friends that I am not sure if I still know how to freedive.Like any other sports, you need to practice freediving to be better at it.There was a time when I had been doing freediving almost every week. Practicing my breathing, equalization, finning and reaching deeper and deeper. I love freediving and I enjoy it, but at that time I was not doing it to be a better freediver. I am doing freediving because I enjoy the company of my freediving friends. I always have a great time…

Travel Guide to Britania Group of Islands, Surigao del Sur

at

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, Surigao del Sur Travel Guide: My First Surfing Trip Experience

at

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

at

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…

Jam-Packed 4-Day Travel Guide in Coron, Palawan

at

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…

First Time Diving and Snorkeling Experiences from Girls all over the world

at

For almost a year, I’ve been doing recreational free diving. I always try to do it as much as possible and I’ve been enjoying every bit of it.I still remember the first time I tried to use bi-fins. It was during our island hopping trip to Guintarcan Island. It was nice and I had fun. I tried to duck dive and practice with it, but I just couldn’t do it. Until, I had my free diving intro class in Moalboal. It was one of the unexpected things I got myself into. I’m glad I…

I Ate a Rat in Thai Binh! Here are my Experiences and Realizations.

at

It was my first time to try solo travel, I’ve been saying it a couple of times that it was one of the most amazing experience I ever had.I volunteered to teach English in a Homestay in Hanoi, Vietnam. During my stay, I met a lot of wonderful people in just that short span of time. Because of them, Vietnam will always have a special place in my heart.Another thing that I always say in my travels is that, it’s the people that makes my travel more incredible. Whenever I try to recall a place, it…

Freediving in Philippines: Freediving Schools, Online Community, Shops and Gears that you might want to know

at

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…
