    The Unplanned Voyage To Busay Holiday Pools

    I had felt and heard her exhaustion before, thousands of times, but this time I was really worried. Staring at her weary engine, I figured out that this would be the abrupt end to our random Christmas day adventure.  For the second time in less than an hour, the engine of our old reliable van overheated. And, there was no way we were abusing her. It was time for us to return to the city and explore the wonders of Busay on another day. Yet, in a fascinating twist, I found myself admiring the beauty of a hidden waterfall inside the vicinity of Busay Holiday Pools. And, like a perfectly…

    Busagak Falls: Pinamungajan, Cebu’s Refreshing And Irresistible Cascade

    There are some people who thrive in chaos, and I’m definitely not one of them. Lately, my group hikes seem more of a pageant or a circus than a weekend escape, with all the different faces and wacky costumes.

And since I consider travel as the ultimate cure for everything, I felt the urge to travel to a remote and not-so famous place either alone or with a small of group of buddies. Thankfully, I found the solution to my introverted needs in Pinamungajan,…

    Spartan Trail: Conquering Another Tough Adventure Playground In Cebu

    Spartan Trail has been, for the few past months, one of the hikes that I kept hearing from other Cebu-based adventurers. From hardcore mountaineers and trail runners to fellow bloggers, there have been dozens of outdoor buffs saying that it can present quite a challenge for novice hiking aficionados like me. And from the sound of it, the trail does seem a thrilling adventure.  After all, I’ve always envisioned Spartans as ripped, fierce, agile and battle-scarred warriors with hard-rock abs. While I was sure that it won’t give me bulging biceps or six-packed abs, I knew for a fact that this trail will give me a tough workout. And so, I…

    Terrazas De Flores Botanical Garden: Cebu’s Breezy Floral Nirvana

    I always look forward to spending some quality time with my family every Sunday. From our traditional lunch get-togethers at Ayala to the road trips down south, Sundays with my folks just evoke a positive, blissful and easygoing feeling. But, lately, we’ve been pretty grounded with our getaways and excursions, thanks to our busy schedules.  That’s why I decided to surprise my wife (Mrs. Bisaya Traveler) and the rest of the family to a quick retreat to Terrazas De Flores Botanical Garden in Busay, Cebu. Even though it was a quick escape to Cebu’s cool highlands, I must say our Terrazas De Flores visit was nothing short of pleasant. Trust…
