SP | Cintai by Corito's Garden

A perfect place to unwind and relax. An environment that encourages you to disconnect from the web world and be in touch with oneself. We really wanted to stay somewhere comfortable after a magical day at Enchanted Kingdom and fortunately, we were in the best of luck. For the good guys that organized this Microtel weekend trip took us directly to the beautiful Balinese resort, Cintai by Corito’s Garden.

SP | Microtel by Wyndham · Batangas

We, both authors of this website, usually go on spontaneous rugged outdoor trips to satisfy our travel hunger. We have always loved the idea of breaking a sweat that’s why a hotel staycation trip is somewhat new to us. And what can we say? It was still enjoyable and actually fun to just rest and enjoy the rural air. Thanks to Microtel by Windham, we were lucky enough to have a relaxing and fun-filled weekend.

Mt. Balingkilat | The Inferno Traverse To Nagsasa

This is a story of a weekend so hot, we carried bundles of water intended just for cooling our heads, literally. It was a journey so scorching we crammed all 7 of us under a very young and small tree just to attain mere seconds of shade. A climb with a heat was so intense, a minute unprotected by shade made my drinking water close to boiling (Exaggeration). It’s the story of our traverse atop the blazing hot trails of Mt. Balingkilat.

Cebu | Sumilon · Bluewater Beach Resort

After experiencing royal treatment care of the Maribago Bluewater staff, we hastily went on to a different kind of luxury trip. We as mountaineers are accustomed to sleeping in temporary abodes yet this particular adventure definitely became one of our most memorable. At first touch of our feet inside the resort premises, we eagerly embarked on a luxurious island trip of Sumilon, hoping for a different kind of twist. Well, it wouldn’t really count as an “Island trip” if one wouldn’t be sleeping inside a tent.

SP | Entertaining the Kids in Tenerife, Spain

When you're planning a family holiday, whether you're after cheap Tenerife holidays or a long-awaited family escape, sometimes it's tempting to do everything in your power to avoid hearing the dreaded "I'm bored".

Cebu | Maribago · Bluewater Beach Resort

As we walked through the long corridors of Cebu-Mactan International airport, I wondered how great it would be to be treated like a king. We as mountaineers are accustomed to receive all kinds of amenities as bonus but it would be so nice to have a weekend where you just have to sit down, relax and have some unending fun.

Gear Review | Keen Newport H2 & Waimea H2

A bright sunny day touched our skins as our habal habal zigzagged through the mountains of Mantalongon, Cebu. I was actually a bit guilty because the metro was being ravaged by Maring yet, there we were, enjoying the sun-shiny day. As we awkwardly disembarked the motorcycle, we went through our bags, got our KEEN sandals, slipped it down our feet and continued walking towards the highest point of Cebu; Osmena Peak….

Mt. Kanlaon | Guintubdan - Wasay Traverse

*We also have an article about our aborted Mt. Kanlaon climb here:

The sunny sky above gave me a good contrast from the last time I was in Bacolod. The small hovering clouds gifted me energy as it swiftly passed below the sun. I was sitting by myself on a rock that, 6 months ago, was deeply submerged down a flash flood. I was smiling incessantly as the heavens finally gave us a good chance to step atop the highest point in Visayas, the most beautiful and majestic place I’ve been to, Mt. Kanlaon.

Bolinao | The Golden Beach Up North

Guest writer Luis Azcona is a music producer, and songwriter/vocalist of the band, Maude.

Last time I went away with Dane and Agnes, I almost killed my feet in Batulao. This time, I dont see that happening - We're going to Bolinao for its waters. Tranquil hopefully, but whatever. Its not Manila, so it must be worth the second try! Lets get started before I get confused between the names Batulao and Bolinao.

Mt. Dulang-Dulang - Mt. Kitanglad | D2K Traverse

I gazed at the clouds above and had only the slightest glimpse of blue with the tiniest hint of sun. I closed my eyes and felt the fog slither through my face. Forboding fear and apprehension engulfed my chest. It was a warning from the Gods of Dulang dulang and Kitanglad that this expedition wouldn’t be a normal hike. It was a starting sign of the 3 gloomy days ahead.
