Since I've been busy with lessons and all that, I have missed the wonders of blogging. And since I am not THAT busy tonight, I decided to blog about the summer escapade I had with my former team.
We had our escapade in CAMOTES ISLAND.
Camotes is located southeast of Manila, northeast of Cebu and west of Ormoc. It has four islands and is divided into four municipalities.
Everyone was so pumped out for this.
HOW TO GET TO CAMOTES ISLAND:
Haha. This is funny because everyone woke up so early in the morning for the travel. I woke up at 1 AM in the morning and my friends were already sending me text messages to eventually "WAKE UP". Lol.
From Jolibee Highway, we rode a jeepney heading for Danao. The fare is 30 Php. When we arrived at Danao Port, we had some Jobi breakfast while waiting for our 5:30 AM trip. The trip lasted for 3 hours and we managed to get a sight of a wonderful sunrise that day.
Spectacular as it is, it was breath-taking. ♥
When we docked the Camotes port, our shuttle service was already waiting for us.
Since I hadn't had the chance to take a decent photo of our service, I took the liberty to use my co-blogger's picture of her in it.
@ Tara: I am sorry for the snatchy me. >D
Our first stop was Buho Rock Resort.
I think this photo will be enough to tell its wonders.
This was our first stop but we were already drenched in sweat. It was scorching hot and we had to climb up a flight of stairs. The step was steep. It took a lot of our energy. Lol.
After that certain exercise that we had, our stomachs were grumbling as a result of it. So we took a trip around town and headed to some carenderias ( a small eatery) and filled our stomachs with scrumptious food.
Our second stop was Timubo Cave in San Francisco.
I hesitated to the fact that when I read the precautions of the said cave, it stated that it wasn't recommended for people who are asthmatic. So saaaaad. I would miss half the adventure. But fortunately, my friends kept rooting for me and encouraged me to go in as long as I am careful of my breathing. I love them ♥
P.S. I am asthmatic. D:
The sign stated that it has less air inside ( Obviously, since it is an underground cave LOL) and it is not advisable for asthmatics, people with rheumatic diseases and who are hypertensive.
High Tide - 6 ft.
Low Tide - 5 ft.
It was one way to cool ourselves down from the heat. The water was so refreshing and cool. ♥
Third stop was Lake Danao. This lake is rumored to have the shape of a number eight and not only that, but it is also the largest lake in the Visayan region. There are various activities to be done here. You can go horse-back riding, do some kayaking, and more.
While I, ooooh, I wanted to do the latter.
I know I'm such a loser for not having a photo of myself while kayaking, but all odds are ever in my favor. illOTL We were lucky that it was raining so we didn't have to kayak under the dangerous UV rays of the sun. Lol.
After the various activities, we headed to Santiago White Beach. There are lots of resorts there to choose from. We stayed at Payag Beach Resort.
The weather was, so to say, suitable for a swim. It was drizzling and we had problems to cover our camera equipment. The weather was on our side this time. Lol.
Ms. Michelle's hubby was kind enough to give us some shots here and there. One sample of their snapshot was this:
Although it was night time, we were telling ghost stories and oooh, not to mention, boys. Lol.
Everyone was having fun at this occasion. Sad to say, it ended too quick. :C BOOOO BOOOO. I hope I get to visit this place again someday. ♥ And of course, with this crazy bunch.
Going back to the wishlist I had,
... is now crushed out. YAAAAAAY.
Camoteeees Island ♥
