  • Lake Apo - Bukidnon Philippines

    Spent one night in the beautiful Lake Apo. We journeyed from Cagayan de Oro via a rented private van, from there it was a 3-5 hour drive. We arrived at night, so we couldn't appreciate the Lake views right away, but when the morning came, damn was it beautiful!

    The main purpose of our trip was for my parents (and their friend) to try out their wetsuits in a lake setting preparation for their upcoming Ironman in Klagenfurt, Austria.
