Remembering the River

While I have written before about the Loboc River in Bohol, I can not help but write about it again as I found a photo I took of it during one of my visits. And this time, this photo was taken during the daytime, unlike my past post which showed shots of the place and what it has to offer during the night time.

Once upon a time, the river was just a river (sounds like a line from one Les Miserables’ song). But what I mean is that there were no floating restaurants then. But somehow the people in Loboc and its officials wanted to share the river to others, to the world. The river still remains beautiful and unpolluted, as far as I could see. It is still one of the refreshing ways to enjoy Bohol. After all, there is food and there is music. There is the river and yes, there’s you with your family and loved ones. I guess that means you will always have the reason to remember the river 🙂

Christmas Thoughts in September

It’s now the month of September. And because this month already ends with “ber”, I could not help but think about the Christmas season already.

Thinking about the Christmas season reminds me about the trips which I had taken in the past during Christmas time when I was still single and then later on when I was already married. There is a sense of celebration in the air, at least in countries where it is openly celebrated.

I am not yet sure if my hubby and I will be doing some Christmas travel this year. But I might just be writing some Christmas travel experiences I have had in the past in the coming days and months 🙂

One More Cave Story

If caves interest you, you must know that there are caves in Bohol that you could check out.

One cave that is quite accessible for you to see is located within Panglao Island Nature Resort (PINR). Whether you are at PINR for a day visit or staying in the resort, make time to check out the Cambagat Cave. And I would say, you really should, especially if your daily life is all about city living. I think exploring caves helps us to reconnect not only with nature but to also reflect what life could have been like if we do not have houses 🙂

Bohol (Tagbilaran City is its capital) is about an hour and a half flight from Manila. You could also easily travel to Bohol from Cebu via fast craft (only 1 and half hour). There are also overnight boat trips from Nasipit and Cagayan de Oro to Bohol. PINR is about 20 minutes from Tagbilaran.
