this-is-camotes-islands-in-cebu-10-places-not-to-miss

I’ve been living in Cebu since I was college. Almost all those years I was just in the City, trying to survive in the university. I started to know the place even more the moment I got out of school. Since then, exploring the whole province has been one heck of an adventure. Until now, Cebu never fails to surprise me, in every destination, it offers a different perspective and a different fun. One of the places I was surprised with is this little group of islands called Camotes.The name itself is intriguing. It sounds like Kamote, which…

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…

I want to try something new for my next trip. I said that to myself. It could be simple, as long as it will be memorable. Then couchsurfing came to my mind. I tried to get a free accommodation and contacted people from couchsurfing who are located in Iloilo City. What happened was I wasn’t able to get a host, but I have met new people through this. This is my first time to meet couchsurfers and it was great. I met Juno, who’s from Ilo-ilo. He was nice and bubbly and a bit crazy actually. Hello…

sabang-daguitan-surf-camp

Can’t deny it, but I’ve been into surfing lately. It was all started in Lanuza, then I got stoked in Mati, and tried it here in Sabang Daguitan Surf Camp in Dulag, Leyte. I don’t know what’s with this activity, and why it is so addicting so don’t ask me. Just try it and don’t ever blame me if you’ll be the next addict. Haha.I must say that Sabang Daguitan Surf Camp is a good place for beginners. And as a beginner who tried to surf bigger waves more than I can…

mt-kan-irag

Since I’ve been doing a few hikes recently, I was expecting that trekking Mt. Kan-irag is as easy like my previous hikes. But I was wrong. It was longer, tougher, and definitely more challenging. Mt. Kain-rag also known as Sirao Peak is a 2,362 ft / 720 m mountain peak located in Cebu City. Many hikers go here for their preparation for their major climbs.During this day trek I was with my friends and our 65 years old guide Ta Ma. She started climbing at the age of 50 and since then she has been able…

mt-naupa-chasing-sunset

What I love about Cebu is that I can enjoy both the city and the beauty of its nature. I can escape from the city in a few hours and have an adventure the whole day.Just like this day hike in Mt. Naupa.Mount Naupa is a 1,916ft / 584m mountain peak. It is the highest peak in Naga City. It is an easy climb and I’m sure anyone can do it. Even beginners. You don’t believe me? Meet Mae. She is the daughter of our guide, Sir Jude. She was with us during this adventure.This…

osmena-peak-summit-to-sea

Honestly, I was pretty excited about this trip because I heard a lot of good things about the place. Including the fact that it is easily accessible to everyone and it has an easy way to climb here without any hiking experience. Though I wanted to stay and have an overnight here, I’m still satisfied with my experience visiting Osmeña Peak.So here’s what happened.It was 2:30am, I’m on the road with new friends. They were all Ilongos. We’re on a nearly 2 hour trip to Mantalugon, Dalaguete. We’re about to climb…

mt-mauyog-the-one-day-adventure

All it takes to have a good adventure is to say “YES”.Like this one day hike to Mt. Mauyog. Located at Balamban, Cebu and near from the historical Mt. Manunggal. A friend of mine, Daboy asked me to join this activity 2 days before the actual trek. With only two familiar faces I know, Sheina and Daboy, it actually went well.Let me tell you a little story, before meeting the whole group, Sheina and I accidentally joined another one, thinking that they were the group we’re about to trek with. While waiting for Daboy, we actually found…

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…
