Predictably, our tricycle driver Manong Glen seemed quite surprised that we didn't want to go the usual tourist route.
I had always wanted to visit Siquijor island and I recently had the chance to spend enough time in this amazing island of fire. Unlike to its neighboring island, which is pretty close to visitors, Siquijor is one of the welcoming and hospitable islands in the Visayas. It is an interesting place with a unique culture.
The year 2016 was the "Year of the Mountain" for me. If you'd scroll unto my feeds, you'd basically find successive entries about the mountains that I have been to. I'd like to believe that this all started on a New Year's Resolution that I posted on Facebook the moment the year started.
It was a joke between friends. But who would have thought that I could actually put into realization this random resolution? Not that I'm complaining. In fact, more than anything else, I've always been grateful to the mountains.
I have lost track on the number of mountains that I have climbed around the ...
My heart was beating wildly, like it's about to burst out of my chest. The 30L bag that I was carrying for two days suddenly became so heavy and my feet were shaking as if I had been in a major climb. The passengers who were with us from Tagbilaran slowly disembarked from the fastcraft like it was just the normal thing to do. Sure, it was. But not for me.

For my twenty something birthday celebration this year (thank God for another year of paghahasik ng rainbow, confetti with glow-in-the-dark glitters at kabaklaan in this planet pak pak ganern!), I thought of going on an adventure GANERNDERLUST style??"which is simply adopting a spontaneous, fearless, and I-don't-give-a-damn-as-long-as-I-am-happy attitude!
Well, true enough my Dumaguete-Siquijor-Apo Island Trip was more fun and exciting than what I thought it ...
For the first time in over a year of travelling, we missed a reservation we had made. Our early morning flight from Boracay to Cebu was delayed almost three hours. When we finally landed we quickly hopped in an Uber and rushed to the bus station but got stuck in typical Filipino traffic. We hopped on a bus/ferry combo to Dumaguete and hoped we'd make what we had read online was the last ferry to Siquijor (7:20 PM). We arrived at 7:00 PM and raced down the street towards the port. Turns out he last ferry actually left at 6:00 PM.
When we finally did arrive on Siquijor we (for some silly reas ...
