Another Motorcycle Ride to Lake Sebu 7 Falls, South Cotabato

I don’t know about you but I think a one-day day off kind of sucks. Even when you have been on that routine schedule for years, there are times when you wish that that day can stretch. Typically you would wish that when you are going somewhere on the weekends or when you are just dead tired of the weekdays. The ride to Lake Sebu 7 Falls takes just a day, but being on a motorcycle can be tiring that you’d wish another day of resting afterward. I don’t understand…

I Left My Heart in Camiguin

I don’t usually travel when I am not clear-headed. In as much as I want to go to different places, I always want to remember them. Which is why I almost always see to it that I have no baggage whatsoever. This Camiguin tour is different. I went on this trip with bottled anger and frustrations; some are even decade-old, in hopes to flush all these negativities down the “island born of fire”. The worst thing about the past is that it has this unique way of creeping in your…

By the Side of the Road to Sen. Ninoy Aquino, Sultan Kudarat

The municipality of Sen. Ninoy Aquino in the province of Sultan Kudarat is located in the hinterlands area of the province. For now, we are more interested in the natural beauty of the place than the political history or origin of its name. Sen. Ninoy Aquino is a mountainous area blessed with hills and caves, among others. There are agricultural products from the municipality but what stands out is the coffee manufactured from it. How to get there? From General Santos City, you will have to take a bus or…

Solo Backpacking Samal Island

The Island Garden City of Samal, or Samal Island, was one of the most famous destinations in Davao del Norte. The very smooth and very affordable transfer from Davao City eased the way to the various destinations and activities all across the island. Which was why, backpacking Samal Island was never a bad idea – even when preparations were rushed. I arrived at Samal Island Saturday night. Having no reservations beforehand, I turned right as soon as I walked off Samal Ferry Wharf and walked towards the lined resorts in…

The Freezing Bukidnon-Davao (BuDa) Road Trip

The Bukidnon-Davao Highway’s elevation is the silver lining for its now buzzing tourism activities. The highway, passing through Marilog District of Davao City, traverses barangay Buda, where many resorts have been established. Being more popular now than ever, BuDa has been attracting travelers from surrounding provinces, even from outside Mindanao. Consequently, tourists’ attractions in the area have been on the rise, giving locals deserved income but also giving way to price surges. Shortly before midnight, they, a group of officemates and their significant others, commenced their road trip to BuDa…

“What’s up, Kiamba?”

“Not much.” Kiamba mused with a wink! I don’t know if I’m asking a smart question here but why is Sarangani Province geographically split? I know it used to be a part of South Cotabato until it was made an independent province but why the Sarangani Bay and General Santos City in between its land area? Why? I know it shouldn’t bother me but it does and now I can’t un-see it. *** It had been so long since I went to the western part of Sarangani Province and mind…

The Stunning Beauty of Asik-Asik Falls

Mindanao, as a whole, has arguably never been a peaceful land for very very long. The numerous conflicts in certain areas of the island group have undeniably affected its growing tourism activities. We ourselves have put on hold our plans to Asik-Asik Falls of Alamada, North Cotabato because of the unrest in the neighboring province. And some people outside of Mindanao may have thought and did too.  But then, it may be the right time to also inspire going back to these places which have been put on hold on…

Exploring MisOr (Day 1 of 2): Have You Ever Heard of the Waterfalls of Claveria, Misamis, Oriental?

You’d probably say ‘No’ and nobody would blame you because I never heard them before too, not until now. Since we had had the time to visit Misamis, Oriental we experienced and witnessed the beauties of their waterfalls without any expectations and they blew us away. The municipality of Claveria had been blessed with the beauty of nature that it was overwhelming. The mossy forests of this place had been hiding waterfalls and it was enchanting to be part of them. Kilomi Falls A very sexy waterfall resembling a flowing…

Lake Sebu Seven Falls + Apareja Buko Halo-halo

Sometimes it is good to embark in a travel with no or less plans ahead. Life is not always calculated thus it is always an option to be carefree. I guess that was just what we did. With four motorbikes, we rode to Lake Sebu from General Santos City initially looking forward into the new adventure of the town – the Lake Sebu Extreme Water Tubing.  Unfortunately though, it was closed. We might have missed to note the memo but it was closed so there was less to be done.…
