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.

Sunset Sesh in Mt. Naupa

Sunset Sesh in Mt. Naupa

(Wordless Blog)

 

Sometimes my mind cannot form the words that I want to express so I’ll just share here some photos that I haven’t posted in my blog. But still if time permits and my mind is in the state of writing, I will still put some stories in it, sooner or later. Please brain work for me!!!HAHAHA! Anyway, here are the photos taken during the sunset hike in Mt. Naupa of my friend and me. Just photos, no words… Continue reading “Sunset Sesh in Mt. Naupa”

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.

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

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

 

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  (https://wp.me/p6aPTy-Ld) if you haven’t seen it yet.

Camping in Malubog : Kind of Disappointing

Camping in Malubog: Kind of Disappointing

 

We were looking up desperately hoping the clouds in the firmament would vanish even just at midnight for we were going to witness this rare phenomenon, the Perseid Meteor Shower, which occurs once a year. We screamed our hearts out that this moment would be perfect as we desired it to be. We prayed to see that magic in the sky but God forbade us to see it. Instead He sent heavy rains, thunder and lightning as if there was festivity in heaven. We were dismayed for a moment as shown by the faces of frustration from all of us. But I won’t let this adventure fail. I won’t let this speck of negativity dishearten us.

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

LUGSANGAN PEAK (Casino 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 haven’t been to this famous place ever. You may laugh at this revelation of mine for it may be 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. (Yasssss 😻)

I’m sharing this now because, somehow, 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, I have partially been to this famous place when I reached Casino Peak.

LAKE JANAGDAN : What It’s Like to Climb to the Crater of a Dormant Volcano

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. Janagdan, a dormant volcano. This volcano boasts of its stunning and enchanting Lake Janagdan located on its crater.

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.😂😂

Tinubdan Falls : Where Those “Negative Things” Abound When You Chase Waterfalls

Tinubdan Falls : Where Those “Negative Things” Abound When You Chase Waterfalls

 

The emotional stress I’ve garnered lately made me loss my sanity. Some friends leave without even saying goodbye. Conflicts and changes occur. Well, they happen many times, yeah, sort of permanent already. Everything is just becoming depressing and disheartening plus the volume of work that is piling up. Time is getting limited and the demand for completion is so high. UGH! If only I could prolong time I would be accomplishing much, huhu!
