My last post before this was probably two years ago when I left my previous company and decided to just do home based jobs during which I had ample of times going to not-so-far places. Then I was preoccupied with so many projects and totally lost interest to travel until I broke my ankle last Christmas and was unable to walk for more than three months. I stayed at home in my little hometown away from the hassles and bustles of the Metropolitan. The first few days was pure bliss, a total escape from my daily expenses and my daily routine of waking up at seven o'clock in the evening and going to ...

From the South Bus Terminal in Cebu City, you board a bus bound for the southeastern portion of Cebu. As you make your way to the south, you see the scenery change from an urban setting to a much more rural one. The trip starts out loud then gets quieter as the further south you go. Sitting on the left side of the bus allows you to enjoy the beauty of the coastal area. After you pass the town of Dalaguete, you are greeted by the beauty that is Alcoy.

A month before our Intramurals, I nagged my friends on going on an adventure. (Yep, I still had to nag them because they aren't as adventurous as me.) I wanted to try canyoneering in Badian, but not everyone in the group could afford it. So I was left with two choices: Esoy Hot Spring in Catmon or Obong Cold Spring in Dalaguete and Tingko Beach in Alcoy. We chose the latter because it would only cost at least 208 pesos (food not included).
My long-awaited day came: August 27, 2015. Our meet up time was 6:30 am in South Bus Terminal. Guess what time I arrived. 8:00. That's an hour and a half ...
