Eden Nature Park maybe is one of the best places to see when visiting Davao City.  Eden Nature Park and Resort is situated at the foot of Mt. Talomo, roughly around 3000-ft above sea level.  This mountain resort is famous for its cool climate, fresh food and green vegetation. The resort offers the best view of the beautiful Davao Gulf.  Behind the mountain resort lies the majestic Mt. Apo.  Eden’s cool weather is consistent all year round.

Virgin Island is a hidden oasis in Panglao, Bohol.  Not a lot of people knows about this paradise. During our two-day vacation in Panglao, the pilot of the boat we rented suggested if we’re interested in the idea of docking at the Virgin Island, a sand bar few kilmeters off the shores of Panglao. With 500 pesos, we agreed to have a lunch picnic at the Virgin Island.

Opening a travel blog

Since when I was in high school, I always find the opportunity to travel and go to other places.  I’ve been to different cities, countries and done a lot of things. Though I blog some of these experiences in my batang yagit blog, most of my trips remain undocumented.  I have lots of back logs to fill.

After I started working five months ago, the opportunity of traveling is being swallowed by my responsibilities. I don’t think I’ll have as much chance of traveling as I had before.  Since I still have lots of back logs to fill, I decided that I should compel myself to write about my travel experiences while waiting for a new one.

What to expect in this blog? I might be featuring different restaurants, foods, resorts, hotes, from different places. Of course, only those which I have experienced.  Expect more posts in the coming days.
