If you are planning your next romantic weekend, incorporate scuba diving into your holiday to help spice it up. Living in a tropical country surrounded by blue seas, we naturally love spending time underwater, discovering a unique and strange world. But with scuba diving, you’re going to explore wonders seldom seen while sharing such excitement with your special someone. That’s why we want to introduce to you these 5 islands, where you’ll find your time is well spent through an underwater adventure, magic and romance.
Our blue oceans cover more than 70 percent of our planet. It contains 90 percent of our biosphere, but only 5 percent of the world ocean has been explored. That means, there are infinite geological and biological wonders under the waves that capture the imagination. Scuba diving has allowed us, humans, to witness such wonders in the ocean’s shallow parts.
With great food comes great creativity. We are naturally inclined to lick our lips and let our tummies grumble when we see beautifully presented delicious dishes arrayed before us. During our trip to Jagna, Bohol, we stopped by a quaint bistro called 10:31 by Chef M in a quiet corner of Tagbilaran City. There, we were able to truly immerse and marvel in the impressive genius of local Boholano culinary artists.
Mountains have their own immortal tales. While many of these stories fade in the mists of obscurity, some leave identifying marks—everlasting scars in time—in their lofty slopes. The saga may be one of triumph, inspiration, mystery, or tragedy. An example of such story surrounds Mt. Manunggal in Balamban for it has a great significance in Philippine history.
The mountains of Cebu are not remarkably tall. In fact, their pinnacles punch through the 1,000-meter mark by a mere few meters. But that doesn’t mean they are less magnificent than other peaks in the country. Our mountains are absolutely fascinating. They radiate their own unique magic, and they have their own beautiful stories to tell. Thus, one overcast weekend, we went out and listened to the tales of rocky Mt. Mauyog in Balamban, Cebu.
Breathe. Relax. Invigorate. These three words remind us that living life is more than just studying, working, and bearing the weight of our personal world on our shoulders. Indeed, we ensure that we revitalize ourselves after a hard week’s work and study. We do this through traveling and engaging in outdoor activities. However, little did we know that this year’s summer, one of our best relaxation moments also turned out to be a surprise accomplishment of one of our fondest wishes.
It is a privilege to see something rare in Mother Nature. That treasure, which only a select few has laid eyes on, makes us realize that there are so many things in this world that we simply don’t understand. For us, that experience is something humbling, something spiritual. Under the blue waters of Jagna in Bohol, a seldom seen spectral wonder touched our souls.
