CALBAYOG ZIPLINE : An Exhilarating 750-Meter Zipline Experience of Gliding Above the Ocean to Another Island

 
 
 
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?

 
 
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 

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 ✌️🤣

CAPITANCILLO ISLAND : Tiny Yet Exhibiting Unique Magnificence

Capitancillo Island : Tiny Yet Exhibiting Unique Magnificence    

 

The roar of the boat’s engine was kind of deafening, leaving us to keep mum and just look around the view of the sea and the horizon. It was a beautiful morning; the sun’s rays penetrated our skin and warmed our body. The gentle waves hit the boat with a rhythm that made me sleepy when suddenly one of our companions pointed to something in the sea. When I looked at it, I saw a dorsal fin protruding on the seawater.

SHAAAAAAAAARKKKK! …Shark on Apple iOS 12.1

The Places that I’m Grateful They Exist

 

There was a time when sadness suddenly hit me. It brought me to turmoil. I was so down and depressed that I couldn’t understand why I felt that way. I even thought of dying but suddenly when I crossed the street and rushing cars passed by me I was then scared of losing my life.

PINIPISAKAN FALLS in San Jorge, Samar:  Once in a Lifetime Extreme Adventures You Ever Get to Experience Here in the Philippines

PART ONE – Extreme Adventures in Samar: A Story About Conquering Fears

 

 

One of the fulfilling achievements I have garnered in my life is not just about achieving success in personal career, or realizing dreams and goals, or having a stable job, etc.,   but also learning how to conquer fears.

If you know me personally, you will realize that I’m not that fearless kind of being. In fact I am scared of a lot of things. I’m scared of the unknown, of not being in control, of almost everything. I think a lot. Over thinker as I am… But I have to let go all of these uncertainties or else I will be stuck up in the same ground, just living in the comfort zone, bland and boring, nothing exciting…
