Early morning tomorrow, I’ll be off on another adventure, this time up north, but I am putting up this quick update before I actually get started on packing. (Hah.) Packing three attractions in this one post, the Miag-ao Church, the Molo Mansion, and the Jaro Cathedral, all in Iloilo.
Weeks before our scheduled trip to Iloilo City, we were looking for the places to visit while there, and many searches resulted to “Stairway to Heaven” mentions. Curiosity got the best of us, so on one free morning, we decided to include it in our day tour itinerary. The Stairway to Heaven is actually found at the Garin Farm, just outside of Iloilo City.
I bet by this time, most people have already gone on vacation for All Saints’ and Souls’ Day. Just here to drop a quick post about my last few hours at the beautiful Islas de Gigantes, featuring an island that was not originally in our itinerary, but since we were passing it on our way back to the mainland, we just had to stop: it’s the Buenavista Island.
If we’re talking about islands, then lighthouses are bound to be an unavoidable fixture. And the Islas de Gigantes is no exception. Considering how islands of varying sizes are grouped together in one place, there is bound to be at least one. In this case, it is the Old Lighthouse.
If you’re on an island or a beach, especially after spending whole year round amid the hustle and bustle of urban life, then you’d probably think the quiet and stillness, with the sun, sea and sky as backdrop, would be more than enough to occupy you. But sometimes, you’d probably look for something to do, other than lie down on the sand, that is. At Islas de Gigantes, you’d find a lot of things to do at Antonia Beach.
I’m back again with another update on our Islas de Gigantes jaunt several months back. This time, it’s our third stop, the Cabugao Gamay Island, which is definitely one of the requisite stops for all island-hopping tours in the islands. In fact, this small island has one of the most photographed spots in the area. Read more
We’re past the middle of October, and I find it gets so dang warm, it’s almost like summer. Well, ‘cept for the frequent downpours we get in the late afternoons and evenings, some of them lasting all through the night (oh and that storm over the weekend). Hot days like these call to mind those days spent at a beach or an island, with nothing but the sea, sky and scorching sun to bear witness to whatever foolishness you come up with. And it’s ok to be foolish, especially if you’re in a place as picturesque as the Bantigue Sandbar in Islas de Gigantes.
