So my parents only planned to go to our neighboring city, Baybay, to buy something we might use for the new year. But we ended up being at the top of a peak embracing the strong touch of the wind and the beautiful scenery. For people who’s got no idea where Baybay is located, it’s an hour or two drive away from Ormoc City. So basically, it’s in Leyte. Oh well can’t complain, random drives will forever be my favorite!
Whenever people would ask me how I’m able to travel, I cringe. I cringe over the fact of being labeled as “traveler” when in all honesty I haven’t even been to places that far. Some people would say I have a “wonderful” life, then there’s me laughing because maybe it’s true or maybe not. I grew up in a family who loves to go local places. I remember trekking early morning to a 1300 ft. mountain when I was still a grader then we’d go directly to a 500-steps shrine. Awwe, I was still so small when I started hike adventures. Although now that I am in college we don’t do it often as a family, rather I do it on my own or with my friends. Things back then compared to what I do now is reasonably different. Before, I don’t need to take away money from my wallet, but today, I’m in task of calculating and budgeting it on my own whenever I want to go out. So I’ve decided to make a short list just so you might want to know.
It was a dried out Saturday evening when suddenly my parents decided to go out and get some groceries for our trip the next day, Sunday. I was so confused, yet very excited since it was my first time to set foot in Biliran Island, which is a bit far from our place. My parents had their first step on the island a few months back before their visit with me. Every time we go out of town, I would always suggest chips to munch and chocolates to enjoy while on the road. Seated at the front seat of the car, I was in awe of the green and well-preserved tall trees along the way. I enjoyed every inch of it.
Whenever I hear something about South Cebu, Kawasan Falls is always on top of the list to visit. It was only last year that I heard something about it, and it was also last year when I was too eager to visit the place but never actually aimed for it. I’m just too happy that before this year would end, I finally got to experience one of Badian’s lucky charms, the Kawasan falls. And when we hear of Kawasan Falls, in no doubt, Canyoneering is the best extreme activity that everyone should try. A waterfall sounds a bit frightening for someone who can’t swim, well, like me. Feel free to laugh, mister. To be honest, it’s not only the beauty of the water falling that excites me, but the trek through a blazing trail just to reach that certain spot, and then next, dipping on the side of the water is what could terribly make my adventure completely astonishing.

I almost forgot I still have pending post about my summer, and I’m trying to remember when was this, lol. Well, summer went off so fast that I am so bothered being not ready for school. I’ve been posting a lot about our summer trips to Southern Leyte on my Instagram, and Tangkaan was one of the places we’ve visited again. Tangkaan Beach Resort is located at the Southern tip of Maasin City, in Padre Burgos. Tangkaan beach consists of beautiful rock formations and proves to be different from the many since it is a white sand beach, thus making the water so clear, while the rest of Leyte’s beaches is made of black sand.
