After going around Cebu City on foot the previous day, we were just tired that we woke up practically just to checkout of our hotel. And on our last day in Cebu City, we weren’t done walking around and eating! Here’s our last day in Cebu City. It was a Tuesday.

The low pressure area prevailing over the Visayas and Mindanao region had made the seas more wavy than the usual making our trip from Tagbilaran to Cebu much, much longer. The rains had not stopped either, but our spirits weren’t dampen.
We left Panglao Island with smiles on our faces but deep inside us we wished we could stay much longer. But time was not on our side and we’re off to Tagbilaran to catch our ferry back to Cebu. Little that we know that the province still has one last pleasant surprise for us.
After having our delightful breakfast at Metro Center Hotel in Tagbilaran, we were off to Panglao Island. When you put the words Bohol and beach together, Panglao would most likely be the place that would come on top on people’s minds.
Every year for the past four years I’ve been constantly going to Cebu to start my year with Cebu City Marathon (CCM). This year was no different, except that the places I love had changed due to the strong earthquake that rocked the region last year. With that, my itinerary had also changed: I decided to just donate my CCM registration fee and support the locals in my own small way by visiting the areas affected. I fortunately had planned for a four day getaway so I had time to explore both Cebu and Bohol.
Happy New Year everyone! Well, the year’s not so new anymore, but I do hope that everyone had a blast celebrating the arrival of 2014. Has everyone started with their goals for the year? One of my goals for the year is to travel, and yes I had already started!
Whatever you plan to accomplish for the year, now is a good time to start if you haven’t done so already. Good luck with all your New Year’s resolutions and may we all achieve our goals!
