The Places that I’m Grateful They Exist

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.

PARADISO CAMPSITE in Bantayan Island : Simplest Yet Exuding Extraordinary Splendour

 

 

A male friend of mine, once told me that the Philippines, being an archipelago have beaches and islands that are almost the same in physical features. According to him, one can see similar sights anywhere in the Philippines. For instance, the islands here are embraced with palm groves, great white beaches, clear turquoise seawater, long stretch of sandbars and coastlines, etc. 🏝

Central Cave : A Spectacular Cave in Samar But Rarely Visited

Central Cave: A Spectacular Cave in Samar But Rarely Visited

 

If somebody would ask how many provinces in the Philippines I have traveled so far, my answer would be: I cannot exactly give an accurate count. You see I am not into counting provinces visited for I am that type of person who visits and revisits places. What if a particular place has so much to offer which could not be perceived in one visit or two… I think, once is not enough to visit one tourist spot. There are might be many stories to tell, adventures to experience, cultures to immerse in, food to eat and a lot of other interesting stuff to do. I like to maximize my time by exploring as much space as possible as far as my feet can take me.

Celebrating Christmas With A Cup of Coffee Only

Celebrating Christmas With A Cup of Coffee Only

 

I celebrated my Christmas 2017 away from home, no opening of gifts during midnight, no noche buena but just a bunch of friends shivering with cold in this December breeze and seeing only the blanket of fog at the top of Mt. Kan-irag ( Sirao Peak ).

Alto Peak : Climbing The Highest Peak In Eastern Visayas that Made Me Cry, Well Almost

After our exhausting climb in Lake Janagdan, we were met by a spectacular scenery, yet we were also greeted by danger that lurked in the corner. As I trod along the majestic trail, there was an instant when I held on to a thorny plant and the thorns pierced both of my palms. I almost cried because of the pain. Watch that video if you haven’t seen it yet.

My Experiences in My Journey to Freediving Which Probably May Entice You to Try

My Experiences in My Journey to Freediving Which Probably May Entice You to Try

 

“I can’t sink myself.”  Those were the words I uttered when my friends bade goodbye as they went to the deeper part of the ocean. Stuck on the shallow water , hit by the waves rushing to the shore, I  felt nothing exciting for I saw only the usual and the ordinary. (like duuuuh!)Read More »

LUGSANGAN PEAK : Let’s Go to Casino, Not To Play Poker, But To Climb It.

LUGSANGAN PEAK: Let’s Go to Casino, Not To Play Poker,  But To Climb It

 

 

I’ve been living here in Cebu for about ten years now, but I have not realized one of my strongest desires. You may laugh at this revelation for this wish of mine is just a simple matter to some. . I have already summited a number of mountains here in Cebu but I haven’t still made it on the top of the highest peaks here in the Queen City of the South. Yes, I haven’t climbed Osmeña Peak. HAHAHA! Now I’m laughing because this post is not even about Osmeña Peak. You may think I’m off-tangent, but I’m not, for the subject of this post stands on the same pinnacles as Osmeña Peak.

I’m sharing this now because I have partly stepped foot on the highest highlands here in the province of Cebu, although I have not jaunted up that famous Osmeña Peak. At least, my strongest desire has been partially fulfilled when I reached Casino Peak.

PART ONE: What it is Like to Try Major Climb for the First Time

 

I just had my first ever major climb on the highest highland of Eastern Visayas, the Alto Peak also known as Mt. Aminduen. But before reaching Mt. Alto we also summitted its neighbor, Mt.

Here’s my VLOG on how my friends and I climbed Lake Janagdan. Spoiler alert, something happened to me at 7:02. Check this one out so that a similar incident will not happen to you in case you would want to try climbing there as well.😂😂
