The year 2019 had just started and it seems like hiking is my new mantra. Our first stop is at Mt. Padhan in Dipatlong, Maribojoc. A big Cross in that mountain is mostly visited by Pilgrims during Lenten Season. The first station of the Cross is found at the foot of the mountain and the rest of the fourteen Station of the Cross thereafter.
Before the day of the trail, physical-wise, I’m haven’t prepared that much (because at first I wasn’t sure to join). I didn’t really jog like my colleagues who happened to have a night jog activities. I also didn’t engage myself in brisk walking or any warm up activities to loosen up my thighs before the hike (feeling confident nga kaya ra sak-on ang moto nga way exercise haha pero guys feel nako pamaolan ko after).
Every New Year has always been special. We set New Year’s resolution and tries to make it happen. We set new goals and tries to achieve it. We make new memories and cherish it.
The year 2017 has filled me with so much adventures and I must say thank you. And I am so happy that I did it and always been grateful that God allows me to travel safely.
Below are my 2017 blog lists:
Few months ago, people were jump-packed at Bagumbayan, Pilar, Bohol to visit the newly opened Jardin Necitas, the Bohol’s Glowing Garden. This another tourist destination has gone viral and has getting much attention to the citizens. It is like another version of 10000 Roses Cafe in Cordova, Cebu. It also has 20000 different colors of tulips and roses. Just like in 10000 Roses Cafe, these flowers of Jardin Necitas are synthetic. They pleasantly bloom at night.
This is one of the rock island i saw in Lamanok, and I was really amazed by it.
Lamanok Island is in barangay Badiang, Anda, Bohol. Lamanok Islands is consists of neighboring rock islands some are enjoined by the mangroves. In what I just have known there were public and private place in Lamanok. The one in public has to pay P300.00 while the one in private resort (Lamanok Island & Beach Resort) is P275.00 only. The difference between the two is that in the former there is a tour guide that will tell you about the history of Lamanok Island while the latter is a private resort with a secluded short-white-sand beach. Both have caves but the one I’ve experienced with was the latter.
The super nice view of the cave while we were sitting in the side inside.
Cabagnow Cave is located in Anda, Bohol. It is now widely known since “Byahe ni Drew”, a travel show of Drew Arellano featured the cave. According to the resident there, before only the people of Anda usually visit the place and there was no entrance fee. But when several people (from outside Anda) discover the place, the owner decided to put an entrance fee and a fence. It is purposely done to maintain the cleanliness of the cave pool.
This beautiful and amazing view is found in Sherwood Bay Resort and Dive School located at Songculan, Dauis, in the island of Panglao, Bohol.
Balicasag Island is one of the famous islands in Panglao, Bohol. It so happen that I’ve never been there. I almost had a chance before to get there but it did not take place. So this time I was lucky enough that I would be able to experience the Balicasag Island together with my officemates. Continue reading
