2011 started out really slow for us. If some of you don’t know, both of us re-enrolled in College so were caught juggling our time between work, school and squeezing a few weekends and holidays for travels.
During April, we headed to Plantation Bay in Mactan, Cebu to shoot for a photography contest. With my carelessness coupled with a bit of bad luck, my beloved Canon 1000D was swimming in the waters of Plantation Bay right in front of my eyes! 2 weeks after, we headed off to Bantayan Island for the Holy Week but then again bad luck followed us and my 2nd DSLR body, Canon 400D was stolen from our tent! Yeah, April was our month!
By June, we were in the Surfing Capital in the Philippines, SIARGAO! By August, we were enjoying ourselves and eating to our stomach’s content in Davao City for the Kadayawan Festival 2011 (series of posts to follow). This was the first time we met other Filipino Travel Bloggers that were not based in Cebu.
October came and we were in “A City in a Forest”, Puerto Princesa, Palawan (series of posts to follow) and checked out one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, The Underground River.
Topping 2011 off is a “one-day 3-municipalities” southbound travel in Cebu together with fellow Filipino Travel Bloggers. It was highlighted with swimming with the Whale Sharks in Cebu then ascending and reaching the highest peak in Cebu, Osmeña Peak (post to follow)!
We had more travels and more fun in 2011 (and we ended up with more backlogs) but all the experience that we had and all the people that we met was all worth every penny that we spent, and even more! 2010 was a good year but 2011 was way better!
Here’s to hoping the best for 2012! See you on the road! Travel safe and let’s have more fun!
