I got awake due to an alarm. It was a lazy dawn, and getting up was a bit of a challenge. The cold breeze blowing from the windows, the refreshing scent of my pillows, and the deafening silence where all conducive to a good sleep.
I reached my noisy phone from the bedside, and then checked the alarm. A note stating, "Trip to Sumilon" was flashing with the vibration rhythm. That text, for some reason, fully woke me up. I could feel my body pumping some adrenaline.
I was ready and all packed up in a matter of 30 minutes. I then grabbed my phone and booked a trip with Grab to our rendezvous ...

Day 3 in the Philippines. After spending one night in Oslob, we took a jeepney 30 minutes north and stayed at Granada Beach Resort in Boljoon. We spent the day relaxing around the resort and enjoying the private beach. This hotel is pretty small and secluded which is exactly what we needed to adjust to the jet lag that was starting to set in. The next morning we decided to venture out to Sumilon Island all on our own. After a small hiccup while riding the local bus (they didn't drop us off at the location we asked for) we found a tricycle who was willing to help us out. He led us to a small ro ...
