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 ✌️🤣
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.

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.

Remember my blog about Mulao River in Compostela, North of Cebu? A week before our trekking feat, I suggested to my friends that after Mulao, we will set foot on another adventure in Argao, South of Cebu. I had no idea at all why it will be Argao after Mulao.

Finally I’m out. I’m out and about to cross out the Cebu Waterfalls Exploration in my bucketlist. After a lot of uneventful times, canceled plans and unproductive moments, I finally can say I am living my life again. Wohoo! I’m back to the tracks of life; got back my train of inner thoughts, put the thoughts into words and pursue my life’s desires. This piece of writing should not be forgotten and ought to be shared to those who have not invaded the southern tip of Cebu especially in Ginatilan and Samboan.Read More »
