Out and About: Summer 2011 at Siargao Island

Summer is kind of like the ultimate one-night stand:
hot as hell, totally thrilling, and gone before you know it.
– Cosmopolitan

The smell of summer comes right out of a fine powdery sands, calling out some wandering feet to hit the beach!

Time to indulge in a sinful summer love affair in a scene of gentle wind blowing kisses against our skin and the majestic blue sea humming soft lullaby all day. Our restless soul surrenders to a one-night only, three nights of thrilling adventures and misadventures.

Here’s a sneak peak of our Surigao Itinerary:

First Day Highlight:

Singapore-Manila-Cebu-Siargao Bound

3 Connecting flights. Lo and behold, the first one was late by 2 hours. My schedule got screwed up.

Almost left by our plane bound to Cebu. Was dashing madly from end to end of NAIA Terminal 3 from Arrival to Departure Gate. I was the last one to board the plane… sweating.

Head straight to the Town of Burgos, Siargao Island. Our accommodation was a little nice hut, with a porch fronting the Pacific Ocean. No other guests, just us.

And then came a Tsunami Warning.

Second Day:

I wanted to explore General Luna and maybe spot some surfer dudes. *giggles*

We checked in to probably the poshest resort in town, and the most expensive ever that we paid for our backpacking trip accommodation.

Cloud 9 Boardwalk at Gen. Luna

Third Day:

Went spelunking. Swimming underwater to get inside the cave. Dive! Play with jellyfish. Fun!

Fourth Day:

Siargao-Cebu-Manila-Singapore Bound

Nightmare with Cebu Pacific isn’t over yet. Our flight was delayed by 5 hours and I have to make an arrangement to fly me off to Singapore directly from Cebu. Boo. So much with promo fares!

    […] My itinerary is made up of a red-eye flight from Singapore – Manila. Given an hour to breath Manila air and reunite with the Mister at the airport then were off to board our plane to Puerto Princessa. I’ve summon all my luck and mother nature to deflect any circumstances for my Cebu Pacific flight to be  cancelled or delayed. Crossing fingers not to run madly at the whole stretch of NAIA 3 to catch my connecting flight again… […]
