Down South: The Taguines Lagoon of Camiguin

So the original plan – and the main reason we chose Camiguin to visit – was to hike up to the crater summit of Mt. Hibok-Hibok. Pretty much everything was in place; we even made plans with the hiker-guide who will lead us up to the summit before daybreak, so we can make a dayhike out of it. But then, tropical depression Marce happened, and when nature speaks and howls, humanity is pretty much helpless. BUT! Not entirely hopeless.

Down South: The Katibawasan Falls of Camiguin

(It’s Monday, September 18, 2017. BTS comeback. So excited~! OK, back to business.) Gawd, I love waterfalls. They’re just so… majestic. Tall, short, plenty of water or not, I cannot help but be in awe of them. I can’t explain it. As much as I appreciate a calm pond or lake surface, or the emerald color of the sea, or the calming sound of rushing water in a stream, there is something about waterfalls that just captures me.

When In Baguio…: Tree Top Adventure Baguio at Camp John Hay

It’s been several days since my SoKor2017 adventure wrapped up, and I still feel like it has been a whirlwind of a week. Which it was. One heck of a fun whirlwind. I still haven’t touched the folder where I saved all the photos and videos I took during that trip, knowing I’m in for quite a challenge. A fun one, I hope. Before all that, however, let me talk about another fun day spent right in my own backyard: when we tried out the Tree Top Adventure at Camp John Hay. Good timing, too, since Baguio City is in the thick of its charter anniversary month this September. Read more
