Right after our butanding experience, we headed straight back to Legazpi City and opted to stay at one of the hostels there. A mere hundred bucks more expensive than our previous accommodation but with cable tv, ac, and better beds.


After depositing our bags and a minute of rest we headed out to fill our tummies with local cuisine, supposedly.

jUmping in


'Twas still dark when I woke up. The sun wasn't up yet. The sea so calm and peaceful. The beach so quiet and devoid of human activity. Call time was 7am but we're late as expected. Someone kept hitting the snooze button. Harhar.. Good thing we packed brekky, a good excuse! ☻ First thing was registering at the local tourism office (200 PhP), which we should've done the day before as it's crowded with tourists! Or we could've arrived earlier than 7 and avoided the throng. Good thing we rented our fins for 150 bucks each the night before...saved more time! Besides our boat-mates were starting to get annoyed. lol Sorry naman.

sLeeps with fireflies


My first major leisure trip minus the family. Though I was dragged by my cousin on this one... to make friends with butandings (Rhincodon typus) or whalesharks in the english language..


So, we arrived in the city of Legazpi, in the southern part of Luzon, a 45 minute travel by air from Manila, a longer trip by land, and proceeded straight to Donsol. We had the option of taking the bus or jeep at the terminal, which we didn't know where so we ended up sharing a van with Dutch couples. The next 45-minute ride was around 1200 PhP, which we split up with the others.
