A Gratitude For 2016 Adventures

Before the year 2016 ends, I would like to honor it by looking back on the journeys it has brought me. Each year has always been a year of discovery and adventures. Every destination comes with another learning. Through the years, I have learned and gained new lessons as I grow into the man I hope to be and I will be.

Surigao del Sur – a fully packed 1 day trip

Mindanao has plenty to offer when it comes to natural wonders. Each province has something to boast for. One of the provinces is Surigao del Sur. Just recently, the long holiday vacation made me able to visit some of the places Surigao del Sur. It was at the end of August that two holidays came…

Bao-Bao Falls – the humble beauty

Lianga maybe as rural as you can imagine, but hidden within its trees and mountains is a sweet spot sleeping in peace. Bao-Bao Falls may not be as tall and proud as the other known waterfalls, but it sure will leave a unique mark on your experiences. The waterfall reminds me of Cambugahay waterfall in Siquijor. Though…

Tinuy-an Falls 

Tinuy-an Falls is yet another gem the Philippines can be proud of. This waterfall is perfectly carved to form a giant ladder-like structure. Each level somehow is perfectly sliced by nature.   Tinuy-an Falls is located in Bislig in the province of Surigao del Sur. Last August 29, 2016, I was able to visit this…

Nine days – Six provinces

Replenish your soul in Tibiao

After around 30 minutes of ride is  the intersection to Baranggay Importante of Tibiao. There are plenty of motorcycles you can ride going to…

Danasan Eco Park

When was the last time you did something for the first time? Well I just did. Wake boarding that is. April 25, 2015 when our company went for a summer activity. It was decided that we’ll spend it in Danasan Eco Park. Danasan Eco Park is located somewhere in the mountains of Danao City, Cebu. It…

Biliran Waterfalls Adventure

Early mornings on a secluded island is somehow relaxing. I planned to wake up by 5:30 in the morning to catch the slow rising of the sun. Unfortunately my body did not cooperate. We spent a lot of energy the day and got too drunk the night before, that our bodies demanded more sleep.  I…
