Everyone is slowly, with caution and being very measured and very careful emerging out of their cocoons, now looking around and figuring out what they can do. I guess for travelers like me, there has been lot of plans especially for trips – places to visit or revisit and activities to do – all of which everyone is dying to savor once again. For me, I’ve been missing the trips and the randomness of being on the road.
Slowly, I’m preparing myself to get back into the groove, those that would lead to where and what I love – the depths! Also, I’ve been longing for those treks and being on top of heights. Few of my planned hustles in the next semester is now in order, and I can’t wait! 😊
Dive in Mantangale and Camiguin
I have been dying to be back in my element, it’s unbelievable that it’s been two years since my last dive. So for my quickie trip, my go-to abode for diving will always be Mantangale, Balingoan. And more than just for the dives, the place is perfect for other activities to unwind after a long week. One can sit quietly by the beach watching the horizons colored in perfect shades of blue, with the island born of fire at a distance!
Speaking of island, my favorite island of Camiguin is a haven for diving with thirty (30) dive sites all over, some of which are hard to beat. Aside from its natural wonders – falls, volcano, hot & cold spring, white beach, soda spring, so on – visit to the island is not complete without diving in its pristine reefs.

Back to Isla
Busan Grande group has always been favorite get away, especially in those times when I just want for some quiet sojourn. A place where one can find comfort surrounded with blue and green waters while listening to crashing waves, yet secluded from great structures. Most importantly, its inhabitants are organized communities that are involved in protecting and preserving their invaluable resources. They perfectly understood that nobody would do it for them except themselves and its protection is their ultimate mission if not sustain this nature’s gift endowed for their livelihood. The coastal communities around the islands believed in their heart that natural resources are always worth the effort in its preservation and protection as legacy for the next generation.

Go Climb Once More
Just few days when I get back at work, my trekking group welcomed me with a trip plan and what a joy! So they were saying after 2ndQ hustles, we will go for a camping trip, They will make the necessary arrangements with friends in South Cotabato. The good thing is, I’ll tag along with them just leaving everything to their command.
Lake Holon trails just opened again for public after a lull during the pandemic, it was launched last March 12 spearheaded by Tboli Tourism Office and this was good news for all. Actually, it’s like shooting two birds for this trek, climb Mt. Melingoy (Mt. Parker) and camp at Lake Holon. Another nature’s surprises await for this trip!
