Amazing Educational Tour

With this rare opportunity, I visited the place where I stayed for 5 years during my elementary school.  Mangagoy, Bislig, Surigao del Sur is considered as one the great destination for every local and foreign tourist.

On our travel, we passed through Nabuntaran, Compostela Valley Province, that is, early 4:00 o’clock in the morning, we are greeted with people who served us with hot noodles and coffee.


Our first stop is Britania, San Agustin, Surigao del Sur. Yes, we are welcomed with the scenic view of the ocean with the multitudes of islands and islets.


It is a scenic view to hover from one island to another. A photo opportunity to lie down on the beach.


Touching with powdery sand in Naked Island is one of  the rare experience. I enjoyed much in caressing and playing the sand.


Several boating and riding activities captured the hearts of every travelers.


Tasting exotic food in the ocean, I ordered lato and swaki, which are soaked in spicy hot vinegar,  to please my empty stomach. Sweet potato is the perfect combination to these delicacies.


Next day travel is the most exciting one. We are on a motorized boat going to Socorro, Siargao. For the safety, we are on our life vest which we requested before we sail on.


Lagoon Tiktikan and Sohoton Gamay Resort are the first destination of the day.


Fear of heights is one of the considerations when someone who wants to jump on the water.


The highlight of Educational Tour is Sohoton, Bucas, Grand Island. Travelers are toured in the majestic land formations including cave like structures.


Rowing a boat makes me feel refreshing as I saw tamed jellyfish.

If we want to go fast, travel alone but If you want to go farther, then travel together.


I have my lunch at floating restaurant. Food choices are being cooked at my own wishes.


Embarking at one of the islands, I realized that I also consider other travelers perspectives in life. I heard their own stories to tell.


Together with my collegues, we enjoyed splashing the crystal water.


Windy atmosphere complements the heat of the sun. Still, I walked in the midst of water.


At my back, they are busy on looking the perfect spot. All I have is to sit on the wooden platform which I considered the most captivating shoot taken.


Sitting beside with my co-travelers pointed out that I am not a solo traveler. Indeed, chatting and conversing with them made my day colorful and wonderful.

“Next destination please” is one of the common expressions as we proceed to the next adventure.

Amazing Palawan

As I suggested, Palawan is one of the tourist destinations in the Philippines which every traveler wants to visit.

Along the shoreline of El Nido, I was greeted with its majestic scenery. Using my mobile camera, I am doing my early morning coffee. I labeled it “Mangape ta diri sa El Nido.”

On photo, I am holding the cup of coffee.

I wanted to explore more on the beach, I discovered that Beach Resort Owners offered services from foods, drinks and accommodations.

Photo showed that I can enjoy my stay by the pool. I tagged this as “Pool or Fool me again!”

Every moment of my life I used to reflect things, events, places and people. The pecfect place is to be here. I coined it as “Thinking Tables  and Chairs.”

On photo: I am sitting on the chair with El Nido’s captivating background.

Hidden Cove

I was amazed when I discovered that my hometown Glan is not fully discovered with nature adventurers. Few local folks visited the captivating shoreline.

On photo is the rock formation which can hold my breath if I will plunge on the clear blue water. It can be potential dive site at the high level water.

Experiencing the deep level is somewhat exciting. The 4:00 o’clock sunshine illuminated the rocky side.
