Six Consecutive Trips in Six Weekends

For a month and a half, I spent my weekends out of town on different travel adventures with various people. The surprising thing was that these weren’t really planned at all.

I thought all my travels for the year were over and I was going to stay put in order to finish writing articles and other freelance tasks. I had unexpected trips but had a great time in the process.

Weekend 1: Boljoon, Osmeña Peak, Kawasan Falls, Moalboal

November 12-13, 2011

DoiEdwin and I went with travel blogger Dong Ho to Boljoon to visit the church and climbed Osmeña Peak, which is the highest peak in Cebu. Then we met up with another travel blogger, Jerome, in Kawasan Falls in Badian and chilled at Basdaku beach in Moalboal. We slept at a barangay hall, climbed down a mountain with hardly any light, took a dip in the waterfall, relaxed at a beach and visited our friends, George & Isa, at The Outpost.

Weekend 2: Dumaguete, Siquijor

November 18-21, 2011

Headed to Siquijor with Ron & Monette, Chichi, and Doi and spent a couple of days on motorbikes while touring the island. We visited a couple of falls, jumped off a cliff, tried to swing like Tarzan (but failed), made crazy videos, and had a quick side trip to Dumaguete for food! We met up with travel bloggers, RV and Mervz, as well as chatted with a kind soul along the way.

Siquijor: Enchanted Balete, Capilay spring, pier beach

Last part of my Siquijor adventure.  There were no jeepneys available so we habal-habaled our way back to the pier. But we dropped by their century-old Balete tree and Capilay Spring Park–>a natural spring converted into a swimming pool. We weren't able to go to Salagdoon Beach Resort because it was low-tide and the cliff … Read more

Siquijor: Lazi Church

St. Isidore Labradore Church and Convent. It is known to be the largest Convent in the Asian region. We passed by this church in Lazi when we had to go to the terminal so we can get back to Siquijor before dark. I'm not really fond of taking pictures of churches but this one just caught my … Read more

Siquijor: Cambugahay Falls

After Catulayan in San Juan, we planned to go to Cambugahay Falls somewhere in the town of Lazi. We waited for awhile wishing that there were some jeepneys available that would bring us there as there weren't that many vehicles passing by. It's a good thing we were able to get one though. We dropped … Read more

Siquijor: Catulayan in San Juan

December 28- 29, 2008 Catulayan in San Juan I was originally planning to go to Dumaguete alone and go somewhere cheap like Twin Lake or somewhere in Bais. But out of the blue, we decided to go to Siquijor instead. There were only a few trips from Dumaguete to Siquijor and the available schedule we … Read more

back from siquijor and dumaguete to cebu

Our Siquijor trip pushed through. We went to some places, not really toured everything. But it was a good backpacker’s trip. Ha, I call myself a backpacker. After Siquijor, we had a terrible trip back to dumaguete with the Delta fast craft. Stayed awhile in Dumaguete and met up with Mel and Robi to eat … Read more
