Can you feel the chills? No! It’s not his heart that’s as cold as ice, but it’s definitely the cool December air serving as a gentle reminder that Christmas is just around the corner! But whether it’s the cool December air or the heart of your ex-lover that’s giving you chills, I know a place where you can warm yourself and satisfy your appetite.
To end my three-day Toledo escapade, our last activity to tick off from our checklist is a day at the Hermit’s Cove. I first thought that this place might be a “hermit crabs sanctuary” because what else could its name come from? It’s a beach.
For the second day in our Toledo Escapade, the gang went to Spring Park Mountain Resort in Cantabaco, Toledo City. From Luray II, we rode a bus to Brgy DAS which costs 20php per head. Getting a bus from Luray II was not easy because most of the buses are already occupied and there were only few buses that will pass by from time to time. From Brgy. Don Andres Soriao (DAS) we had a short trip via a motorcycle to Cantabaco.
I went on a 3-day vacation in Toledo last week in time for its Hinulawan Festival. I’ve never been in Toledo for so long and I was excited while I was packing up my things for another adventure. I went there with my colleagues and stayed in Sheen’s place for the rest of the vacation. Having four of my colleagues living in Toledo City is an advantage for this trip because our foods and accommodation is already guaranteed. Our transportation expenses were not shouldered though but that’s fairly fine for everybody.
I went 67 kilometers far from home to send my petition to our Lady of Simala (Birhen sa Simala). It was my first time to visit this Castle-like church in the Southern part of Cebu and I felt so blessed to have visited it. Its enchanting building structure reminds me of Disney princesses and fairy tales.
Greece is one of the countries that I want to visit because I have always been a fan of its architecture most especially during the 8th-6th century BC. In order to achieve the goal, I need to fly 9,939 kilometers from home and wait until I can officially fund myself. But before I knew it, Greece is just an hour drive from my city and it is just right around the corner.
So just a few days back, Jee, a dear friend of mine, invited me on an out-of-town spontaneous escapade. Thrilled of this spontaneous idea, I decided to go with him. I also tagged along my PIC (partner-in-crime) so he can meet these awesome buddies that I have. We did not discuss any further details of the escapade (estimated budget, itinerary, food preparation, etc). That night, I just packed my things: my rashguard, spare underwear, towel and some vanity kits that I tend to bring along with me anywhere I go. I even squeezed the remaining money I have left from the sideline job I had. And on the following day, we geared ourselves up for the long day ahead.
went on a vacation across my island a day ahead an approaching storm. Sounds challenging? Yeah, but that’s not the worst part. The worst part is I went there on the last week of December which means New Year is just around the corner and I got stranded in an island, away from my family, and with no cash at hand! Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to me. I thought I’m gonna spend my new year stranded in an island. Well of course, things got better later on. I could just laugh at this experience now.
