Bohol + Cebu (2014): The “Hungry Birds” of Tagbilaran

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.

Bohol + Cebu (2014): The Beaches of Panglao

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.

Bohol + Cebu (2014): The Churches of Bohol

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…

Highlights of 2013

2013 is one interesting but very challenging year for me.  I’ve had lots of ups and downs, but looking back I can’t say that I have any regrets.  And if I had to pick just 10 as highlights of my year, this list would be it.  In no particular order, they are:

Bohol + Cebu Quickie: Alona’s Allure

Bohol wasn’t originally part of my itinerary, but since I had some “spare time” I might as well use it to visit one of my most missed places since it’s just a two hour ferry trip from Cebu.  And this time my Bohol itinerary was clear: the beach!

Bohol + Cebu Quickie

I was supposed to start the year with Cebu City Marathon, but it was just my luck that I wasn’t able to register in time.  But since my flight and accommodations are already set in place, I was still good to go!

2010 in Pictures

2010 was the year running took a backseat from my list of activities, but in between my great hiatus there were some interesting events that transpired.  Here’s a look back at how 2010 was for me: January The highlight for the first month of 2010 was my return to running with a 50K test run…

“Sophomore”

November 11, 2008 was the day “runningpinoy” was born on the web, and now two years hence the adventure continues.

Committing Suislide! (EAT Danao)

All good things eventually comes to an end, and before finally concluding my Bohol trip a visit to the island’s new adventure playground was in place.  Where else but in EAT Danao?

Bohol Island Tour

For the second day of our tour, the island of Bohol itself is our destination.  It doesn’t sound very exciting, until we actually had the tour.  And here’s how our second day of touring transpired:

A Surreal World: Fireflies Kayaking at Abatan River

Kayaking has always been my favorite activity on water.  As a runner who is used to going places, a kayak is my best friend on water as it allows me to do as such, like a bike on land.  While I may not own one personally, I never miss the opportunity whenever I had the…

Wet, Wild, and Healthy

It’s the second day of my Bohol trip, and today’s theme: wet, wild, and healthy!  It’s an entire day of getting close to nature with most likely risk of getting wet and close encounters with wild life.  Let’s start the tour.
