Camiguin (The Island Born of Fire)
We went to Camiguin last Feb 4 to 5, 2018.
Camiguin, the island born of fire. This is one of the places that is on top of my travel bucket list. Why? I was intrigued because this island has active volcanoes and yet its still flocked with tourists every now and then.

The large concrete cross and monument was constructed in 1982.
