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.

More on these birds later… 😀

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.

Wait for us, Alona!

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 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.

Goodbye for now, Manila!

Supermarket Surprise

I had just arrived in Tagbilaran, Bohol.  After an interesting flight which barely arrived on time, I was still a bit too early to check in my hotel room, but not too early for my tummy.  After settling some procedures with the hotel I asked around for some good food (outside the hotel of course).  Unfortunately no one can point me into any particular place around but the nearby mall.  Mall!

A Weekend of Adventure (Preview)

This weekend is one of the busier weekends as far as running is concerned: five races are simultaneously held, two of which are in Bohol!  Beginning with Metro Manila: the FINEX Run in SM Mall of Asia, The FS Run is Bonifacio Global City, and The Green Mile in Ayala Alabang.  Elsewhere, in Bohol, there’s the Tagbilaran leg of the National MILO® Marathon, and The North Face Thrill of the Trail in Danao.  It’s probably the same time that I saw two races simultaneously held in a province.

Five races, one long weekend
