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…

Traveling is one of the most liberating things to do. No matter what kind of traveler we are, we can experience different situations, and from that, we can tell different stories to other people.I experienced different versions of being a traveler. It all started one summer at a time in my homeland, Mindanao, as a family travel. Then college came, group of friends started to explore the nearby towns in Cebu. After college, I experienced traveling with strangers in a boat for four days and three nights on an island hoping in Leyte. And recently, I experienced traveling alone…

The first time I visited Siargao, all I wanted to do was to surf since it is the surfing capital of the Philippines.

College was a big change for me, maybe also for others. Many students came from different places, and using different languages. For example, in my dormitory, we came from all over the Philippines. From Leyte, Samar, Bacolod, Masbate, Zamboanga and Palawan. It was a chaos for me as a province girl, now living in a big old city.First day of class in college, and everyone needs to introduce themselves. Name, from what school, and where you came from. Of course I got my turn, I introduced myself and told the whole class I’m from Tandag, Surigao del Sur…

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 in 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 there’s a lot of things going on in this simple yet amazing island…

I’m pretty spontaneous. I don’t consider it as a good thing, but every time I say yes to adventures, I always hope that things would turn out good.Like this random travel to Davao.My initial plan was just to stroll around the big city of Davao. Without any plans, any activities, nothing at all. What happened was, my two friends already planned to go to a place called Mati. What the want to do is to surf.I like the idea because my first surfing experience was not that nice. So I went with them without any…
