For my birthday last year, we visited Bohol, a province in the Central Visayas region, as a sidetrip to our Cebu getaway. Bohol is best known for its tarsiers and Chocolate Hills. Luckily, the weather was good and we were able to visit both sites. Aside from those attractions, Bohol has so much more to offer.
Early last year, I booked a flight to Cebu on a whim. I’ve read so many wonderful posts about Cebu and Bohol; I wanted to see and experience the sights for myself. Cebu City is the capital of Cebu Province, an island in the Visayas Region of the Philippines. The city is reminiscent of Metro Manila, but a cleaner, less chaotic, more polite version thereof.
When we visited Zambales in January 2014, I was blown away by the beauty of the mountains and white sand beaches. It is the perfect getaway because you can try different fun activities such as hiking across Mt. Nagsasa, camping and swimming at Nagsasa Cove, as well as sightseeing at Talisayin Island and Capones Island.
For our Bali adventure, we grabbed Dana Guesthouse Bali’s deal on Hostelworld. The deal included accommodation, breakfast, an English-speaking driver/guide, and private transportation. All we had to do was make a draft itinerary and the driver would take us to the places we wanted to see.
For all kinds of travelers, it is a must to be acquainted with the 7 Leave No Trace (LNT) Principles. For some travelers, LNT has become a lifestyle. The LNT program teaches us and reminds us of the importance of responsible outdoor recreation. Those who observe the LNT principles not only appreciate, but respect public recreational places and fellow tourists.
