These days, hiking or climbing mountain became a trend. It has a transmittable effect to people, especially to the Millennials; there’s a good effect though. The sudden popularity of climbing mountains helps boosts the tourism of the local governments and it gives jobs to the locals of the specific area.

As it continues to become popular some of the undiscovered mountains have been discovered and the untrailed mountains, now has trails. A lot of people are now being so enthusiast when it comes to climbing mountain, but maybe they forget something very important for the environment; they forget to pick up the trashes –their own trashes. Let me tell you some proof, later.

Enchanted River | Tinuy-an Falls

On our 4th day in Agusan del Sur, we decided to go to Enchanted River in Surigao del Sur, because on my first visit, I wasn’t able to go, as I have a very limited time there. This time since we have one extra day, I don’t want to miss the chance to go to Enchanted River. 😀 So yeah! We have found a multi-cab to service us in going to Enchanted River plus a bonus visit to Tinuy-an falls.

Why Enchanted River? Because I wanted to see  how enchanting it is. It was popularized by lots of documentary shows and featured by different travel blogs. They’ve been captivated by its beauty and was mesmerized by its mystery. And I’m one of those curious people about the river, so why not check it out.

5 things that will make you fall in love to Oslob Cebu

OSlob Cebu

5 things that will make you fall in love to Oslob Cebu

Oslob is one of the beautiful provinces in Cebu, located in the Southern part of the island. Five years ago, this place was unknown to many, but because of the popularity of social media and blogs by some travelers; this place is now a travel bucket list.

In fact, when you search Oslob in google it will show you different great places and blogs that says good things about the place. You should try to visit Oslob one day and I’m sure you’ll go back as often a you want.

My last encounter to Oslob was last June 10 and it left me in a serious stage of separation anxiety. Right now, I’m missing the place so badly and the people and the air and beaches and the life. Ugh! How I wish I can stay there longer or can go back as often as I can.

But anyway, as an outlet of this #sepanx, I would like to share my 5 Things that will make you fall in love to Oslob

First is HOW to get to Oslob from Cebu City?

  1. Go to Cebu South Bus Terminal located along N. Bacalso Nat’l Road. Ride the CERES bus. I recommend you choose Ceres bus liner because it has huge bus for comfortable travel, it is also better to choose the aircon bus becasue it will be a long trip.
  2. Ride the bus with a signed “Bato via Oslob” – do not mistake the signages, there are also buses going to Bato via Barili but it will lead you to Moalboal, remember that you are going to Oslob.
  3. Bus fare is P154.00 one way for about 3-4 hours. Tell the conductor to drop you to where your accommodation is, we are booked in Seafari Resort in Cuancua-ay Tanawan Oslob.

Cebu City : Guide for a day tour

 

Cebu is located in the Visayas region of the Philippines and was tagged as the Queen City of the South because of its huge potential when it comes to economy, tourism and infrastructure. A lot of foreigners ravaged Cebu not just for a visit, but also to migrate and study English in the Island.

I’ve visited Cebu several times in the past, but it’s more of a business purpose, this time I travel to Cebu for leisure and for exploring purposes. 🙂

So, here’s my Cebu City guide for a wet and dry day tour.

In the Philippines we only have two seasons; the dry season and the wet season. And these seasons are always unpredictable as there are times that it’s summer, but it will rain and vice versa. We travel on the first week of June, and it’s the start of the wet season, but we still dare to go because the sun is still blazing. True enough, we had a wet and dry trip in Cebu.

Around Cebu City

From the airport, arrived at 7am in the morning, we have the whole day to go around Cebu City before going to Oslob. But since we have our back packed with us and we don’t have any hotel booking in the city, we go to Traveler’s Lounge in SM City Cebu to deposit our bags for a fee of 30 pesos for 2 bags until 8:30 pm. We can go around the city w/o  the weight of our bags, what a relief!

1. Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral

From SM City Cebu, ride a jeep with 12I code; it will pass by Cathedral.

2. Basilica del Sto. Niño

From the Cathedral, exit on the left gate if you’re facing the Cathedral. Cross the street and turn left for a street with a lot of vendors selling religious items and some foods. Go straight and you will find the Basilica del Sto. Niño.

There’s an ongoing morning mass outside when we get there, because they don’t use the Basilica structure for a  mass anymore as they’re preserving it, people can just go inside to pray and reflect. This place is also known for the famous religious festival called ‘Sinulog’, it happens every January, and one of the highlights is the street dance with the Sto.Nino icon and it will last for 9-12 hours. Many tourists preferred to visit this event by reason of witnessing the religiosity of this Island and to express their devotion for the Sto. Niño.

Pinto Art Museum: A world class museum

Art? Paintings? Errr. I’m not interested.

Those are words that we sometimes hear when it comes to art. Even me, sometimes I lose enthusiasm to paintings. Reason? I don’t know how to paint. haha Lame reason. I know.

Then one Saturday afternoon, me and my friend decided to visit one of the Art Museum that is very near our town, the Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo City.

The place is really awesome, it looks so different from the other museums that we have here in the Philippines. You will not look forward for the paintings alone, but also for the structures where the paintings are located. A must visit for every travel junkie like me, who don’t just travel, but also appreciate the things around them such as trees, mountains, air and art. 🙂

How to get there?

Option 1 : From Megamall, ride a van going to Antipolo Simbahan (Church). Drop off point is near the church. After alighting from the van, ride a tricycle (there are many tricycles in Antipolo Simbahan) tell the driver that you’re going to Pinto Art Museum, then sit back and relax because the driver will bring you in just 10-15 minutes.

Camp Date: April 7-10, 2016

Venue: Sampaloc Elementary School Tanay, Rizal

Theme: Time’s up! is our camp theme; the concept is about the world/earth that has a few hours left of survival. Survival, our earth needs to survive and of course the participants need to survive all the challenges that will unfold as they journey. The earth has been in a critical state for so long, that mother earth sends her son to check the devastation and find ways how to control the worsening situation of the earth.
