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…

amihan-sa-dahican-surf-eat-sleep-repeat

I’m pretty spontaneous. I don’t consider it as a good thing, but 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 going to a place called Mati to surf. I like the idea because my first surfing experience was not that nice. So I went with them without any expectations. Just the urge to try surfing one more time.For four days and…

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 and a warning to be safe. Having that love-hate relationship, I never truly appreciated what the ocean really offers.Now that I’m adult, freedom to explore comes in. It also means that I have more time and opportunity…

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…

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…

It’s funny how a little doubt can stop us from doing something we want. Just a little nay, that can cause a long delay.  Just a little no that can hold us back and not to go.For a long time, I was listening to those little voices that hinder me to start my own blog, to buy a domain and start creating content that I will share with the world. I realized that those doubts created an idea that I can’t do this. The sad part is, I’m the one creating that idea into my own…
