LAKE BENSIS : WE MADE THE WRONG TURN

LAKE BENSIS : WE MADE THE WRONG TURN

 

Hello, I’m back in this virtual world and sharing another episode of Chasing Potatoes’ adventures. This time, my friends and I went camping in Toledo specifically along Lake Bensis. Ever since this Lake Bensis circulated in social media due to some controversies, I got interested in visiting this Lake haha. The more they want to hide it, the more people (like me) desire to visit it, charot! Continue reading “LAKE BENSIS : WE MADE THE WRONG TURN”

Beach Montemar : Bantayan  Bound Again and Sharing Some of my Fave Photos and Hated As Well

Beach Montemar : Bantayan Bound Again and Sharing Some of my Fave Photos and Hated As Well

 

I always dream of going places but I as I get older my excitement diminishes. Planning about trips becomes more of a burden which hinders me from chasing those dreams. I tend to overthink a lot about the inevitable. Just like what I thought while looking at this photo I snapped while journeying through the seas to Bantayan Island. It was almost evening as the sun started to go down. The sunset gave me a beautiful sight but it also gave me the realization that a day has almost ended and a new day will be coming forth, full of unknowns and uncertainties. Another day for our cells to degenerate, we get older, our parents get older, the earth is not even getting better — a realization that nothing lasts forever that change is a constant matter. Ugh. I am just such an anxious and fearful being — a pessimistic idiot! Sigh.

PLACES IN MASBATE WE VISITED IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS

PLACES IN MASBATE WE VISITED IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS

We almost missed our ride in going to Masbate after a very heavy traffic we experienced in Danao. We arrived at the port almost 12:00 midnight which was also the time of the boat’s departure. That was literally chasing time. Haha!🤣Anyway we cruised on Masbate seas on a very fine weather that somehow gave us a peaceful journey and in the morning we were greeted by a stunning sunrise.

BEST BUDGET BACKPACKING TENT: MONGAR ULTRALIGHT 2 PERSON TENT

My unboxing was dated April 20, 2019 and I forgot to show close to the camera all the things inside the package. I was so excited to open it that I forgot all about showing them to you, guys. I hope you won’t get confused to see another clip of all the parts of my tent some of which are crumpled for having been used twice. Therefore, I got the chance to share also in this video some reviews about the tent.

Solo Traveling in Calbayog : Two Splendid Waterfalls To Chase in Calbayog

 Two Splendid Waterfalls To Chase in Calbayog

I tried solo traveling once because I wanted to experience freedom of taking risks and of dealing with personally unknown ventures to find out if it is really liberatingly beautiful. I found the answer when I visited Calbayog.

It was not all fun; there were times when I got scared while jaunting but at the end of the day I set aside the negativities encountered along the way and thought of the valuable lessons learned in this experience. That is why Calbayog already has carved an etch in my heart even though I was there two years ago. But it is only now that I felt the desire to write this blog. I have shaken off the lethargy in my being and have stopped my addiction to Mobile Legend, haha 😂. I have to stop or else that would be the death of me, ugh!

This adventure happened on my first solo travel to Calbayog. I visited some of the city’s historic sites which were well-preserved and maintained, explored two majestic waterfalls and experienced the exhilarating and fulfilling zipline adventure which I’m going to tackle here in this blog. Unfortunately my trip went wrong for I misjudged my trike driver. If you’re curious about my solo Calbayog travel, here’s my previous article.

Exploring Calbayog : My First Time to Travel Solo… And What Went Wrong?

 

Exploring Calbayog : My First Time to Travel Solo… And What Went Wrong?

 
 
I remember last 2016 I traveled for the first time in Catbalogan in the Island of Samar where I celebrated my extended birthday extremely — extremely in the sense that I spent three days there — exploring, living and sleeping inside the biggest  cave in the Philippines, the Langon Gobingob Cave. Not only that, I also biked around the town, tried canyoning in Bangon Falls and fell down and got dirty in Lobo Cave and a lot more daring and extreme adventures. (Read this blog so that you’ll know how really extreme my adventures were). Even though I traveled alone to Catbalogan, I didn’t think of it as solo travel because it was an organized and well-prepared activity cared of  trexplore.ph with the safe guidance of Sir Joni Bonifacio. That trip ended up as myself being a joiner of some thrilling adventures. Thus I got to know, meet and socialize with different people from different parts of the Philippines who shared the same sentiment of love for adventures as I did.

VIRGIN ISLAND : What I Regret With This Trip

 

When I arrived at my favorite destination, my island paradise, my home, Bantayan Island, I wasn’t really planning to go out because I wanted to spend my time with my family, cuddle and bathe our dog (haha 😋) and most importantly I wanted to be in my own bed for I needed to rest this weary body and heart of mine. Cheret ✌️🤣
