After a very rough 2020, we are now entering a promising 2021. However, the lessons we learned in battling COVID-19 in the past year gave us insights into how we should adapt to the new normal in 2021. We had a glimpse of the exciting new normal through Bluewater Resorts Work + Study + Play campaign, the flagship program of the BlueCARES initiative. The initiative is developed as a response to the conditions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. And we tell you, this new program is super exciting!
In one of our previous posts Adventuring Beyond COVID 19, we mentioned how the pandemic may stir a renewed focus on local travel, and true enough, it has. Apart from the Philippines, other countries like Thailand, Japan, Mexico and Switzerland are also encouraging their citizens to travel locally in order to kickstart the economy and revive the tourism sector.

After 6 long months of being quarantined for our own safety, the world is slowly opening up again. We’re now winning the battle against COVID 19. The number of infected and COVID-related deaths has drastically reduced. We’ve read encouraging reports about businesses reopening. Best of all, several vaccines in development have now entered Phases 3 or even done on limited tests.
COVID 19. It came out out of the blue, and it is a crisis that none of us have ever encountered before. Governments, businesses, health institutions, and many other sectors of society were caught completely unprepared, having the rug figuratively pulled out from under their feet. The plague of the coronavirus seemingly turned society—and the things we take for granted—upside down.
First of all, dear readers, we hope you are safe. The coronavirus (COVID 19) pandemic has put our trips and adventures on hold until this crisis passes. Fortunately, we’re fine and our employers were kind enough to let us work at home. As such, we got quite busy even if our city is under quarantine. Anyway, let us radiate some positive vibes by telling you the final tale of our Tres Marias adventure.
Deep inside the mighty Tres Marias mountain range lies a plethora of challenges and wonders. These are stuff that only a handful of people had the opportunity to experience. And with the help of Joni, the Trexplore team, and the local Mamanwas, we’re happy that we were given that same chance. Welcome to the green and fertile heart of Tres Marias in Biliran!
Fairly recently proclaimed as an independent province from Leyte in 1992, Biliran Island is one of those quiet and unassuming islands in the Philippines. But if you think Biliran is just your typical rural town, you are definitely missing out a lot! That’s because hidden within its nooks are magnificent mountains, deep canyons, mysterious caves, lofty forests, towering waterfalls, and more! Biliran is a world-class adventure destination!
