Our Not So Typical Bohol Road Trip to the North

“Where are you?” a caller asked. “In a place where heartaches mend,” she replied. This is the conversation I overheard from the lady sitting just behind me while on my way to Cagayan de Oro to meet my friends (TribuAdOBo). Is my hometown, Bukidnon, really a place to be for the brokenhearted and in pain? … Continue reading Beyond Distance: Adventures to CDO and Bukidnon

Adventure is… Leaving Your Comfort Zone for Mt. Talinis (Apolong-Bediao Trail)

Barely calling ourselves as mountaineers with our few years of hiking experience, we ever dreamt of leveling up. What happens next was really an epic – somewhat a failure for not reaching Mt. Talinis’ summit but an overall success for our safe descent. Admitted to having not properly prepared for the climb, this serves as … Continue reading Adventure is… Leaving Your Comfort Zone for Mt. Talinis (Apolong-Bediao Trail)

Traversing Mt. Manunggal-Mt. Mauyog: A Random Journey

Would you rather spend time with random people having spontaneous fun with, or spend time with long-known people doing the same boring routine? Just as when you meet new pals with the feeling and camaraderie of having known each other for such a long time. I'm still on hype though.
