Island Hopping

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…

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…

One of the good parts about traveling is that I can meet a lot of people. Whether I’m the tourist or I’m the local; It connects us to one thing, travel. When we went to Hong Kong a few months ago, we met a local named Monique who went with us touring Hong Kong’s temples. She even took a day off just to take us to their tourist attractions and we tried their favorite desserts. It was one of the highlights of our travel. I believe that the people of a certain place makes my travel more…

Exploring Carnaza Island for Php1000

exploring-carnaza-island-php1000

It was almost a month of unemployment and all I did was watch Netflix on weekdays and freedive on weekends. Though I enjoyed (and still enjoying) both, it was not the routine I wanted. To be honest, I do not like routine because routine is lethal.In the last week of August, I got a chance to break that routine and explored the island of Carnaza, located in the northern part of Cebu. From the island you can see the provinces of Cebu, Masbate, Leyte and Biliran. It was the perfect destination! The island was not touristy and it was…

el-nido-and-puerto-princesa-in-4-days

Last labor day, me and my family visited Palawan. It was a family vacation and though I was pretty excited about the fact that we will visit the most beautiful island in the world, I was worried. The reason? It was because of the planning part. I already knew that one way or another I will make our itinerary for this vacation. As I told you before, I’m not really good in itineraries, it stresses the hell out of me and though it was (and still is) not my cup of tea, I needed to figure out the ways…

visit-the-hidden-lagoon-in-guintarcan-island

Last year, I was part of an adventure where we went island hopping for four days. It was epic. And since then I’ve tried to join these adventures organized by Outdoorsman’s hub, but it seems the universe is not on my side, or should I say my schedule was a mess. I keep on skipping those activities, until the day we went on a 2-Day trip to Guintarcan Island.Does the island ring a bell? No. I thought so. Because this is not a common destination. In fact, I never heard of it until the Facebook group…

Two months ago I visited Siargao and until now I still can’t move on. No days have passed without thinking when will I go back. I’m not sure why, but what I know is there’s something on the island that made me fall in love with it. Maybe it’s the waves, the people, the vibe. I can’t specifically point out what it is. Maybe the whole package the island can give.  I don’t know. What I know for sure is that there’s a lot of things going on in this simple yet amazing…

4-day-island-hopping-experience

This experience gave me the opportunity to live my dream of becoming a pirate. Though we don’t have action scenes like in the movie. The moments we have while embarking on this adventure were more memorable and definitely fantastic.Hopping from one island to another, seeing breathtaking views, watching the sun rising and setting each day, swimming in dazzling blue water, and having good times with strangers turned into friends. All that moments in just 4 days. Sounds amazing right?So let’s start!DAY 1 SAMBAWAN ISLANDThe island offers such a beautiful scenery. From the beach with…
