Rediscovering Bohol after the Big Quake - Bohol Countryside Tour

Five months after the 7-magnitude earthquake in Visayas, Bohol tourism is finally on its way to recovery.

We recently visited Bohol and I was happy to see that most of the tourism spots of the province are still up and beautiful. Though some of the centuries-old churches were ruined, they are now being rehabilitated and I'm hoping that in a few months or years time they will be fully restored.

Here's a photo diary of our recent trip to one of my best vacation destination on Earth, Bohol.

The Tarsier Conservation Area

Our first stop for the countryside tour was the Tarsier Conservation Area. Tarsiers in the conservation area were fortunately unharmed. They say that the tarsiers sensed the quake coming so they already know what to do and where to hide.

Mt Tapyas, Coron, Palawan

Coron is best known for its great lakes, dive spots and beautiful beaches. But aside from that, it boasts one major land attraction, Mt. Tapyas. Mt. Tapyas is the second highest mountain in Coron. It is 210 meters above sea level, just 14 meters higher than Mt. Manalmon in Bulacan.

Mt Tapyas, Coron Palawan

Last year, typhoon Yolanda devastated some of the tourism spots in the country. One of which was the beautiful Coron Island and the most visibly damaged was Mount Tapyas.

We visited Mt Tapyas recently and I can say that Coron tourism is now back in business. There are still some visible signs of damage but the trail to Mt Tapyas summit has been repaired. Unfortunately, the giant cross was no longer there.

3 Reasons to Stay in Coron Ecolodge

Finding the perfect accommodation for out of town trips can be very time-consuming, especially if you've got lots of good hotels to choose from. But if you're visiting a place like Coron (Palawan) where most activities are spent outdoors, shelling out an excessive amount of money for accommodation is not practical at all.

I'm sharing with you an accommodation in Coron which showed us that quality service doesn't need to cost a lot. Coron Ecolodge, a place where we've experienced the convenience of a boutique hotel within a backpacker price range. I don't have many photos to show (because we were outdoors most of the time) but I made a list of Coron Ecolodge's 3 good points.

5 Things I've Learned About Taal Volcano

I can't actually remember when my fascination of mountains has started, what I know is that I really enjoy wandering through the woods. I am no hardcore mountaineer or backpacker, but I delight in going for long walks. I feel energized whenever I am with nature so I always make a point of going out every once in a while. And last year, I was able to visit the world's known smallest active volcano, the Taal Volcano. I'm sharing some details that might be worth knowing if you're planning to visit Taal.

Taal Volcano Crater Lake
We've got a chance to hike up Taal Volcano Crater Lake last December during our trip to Tagaytay. And I must say that this trip was worth it. I'm not an expert in mountain climbing but I think it's fairly an easy climb. Here are 5 things that I've discovered in trekking Taal Volcano.

No Means. . .

NO is such a negative word, right? For me, not really.

Saying YES can instantly make you agreeable, BUT you cannot say yes to everything.
Sometimes, people tend to agree or say yes because they don't want to hurt other people's feelings.
We don't want to let people down so we end up doing things we really don't like.
I am guilty of this, sometimes. I bet, you are guilty too! :)

But you CAN say no.
NO to people who aren't right for you.
NO to things you don't want to do.
Have the courage to be free from doing things you resent.
