Is the beach too crowded for you? Are you looking for a nice summer getaway and still maintain that homey feel? Cordova Home Village is the right place for you. I came to know this wonderful place from a visiting cousin who just arrived from the US. Yeah, I know that did not sound right for someone in the US to introduce this to me, "the true blue Cebuano". Hehe But he did. The place was a wonderful surprise. It is unique and great for family or team bonding activities.
This weekend I officially kick-started summer with a trip to Bohol. Unlike any other trip, I haven't done my usual instense research of places to visit and where to stay. I came with friends and no questions. I came with the expectation that no matter what, I will enjoy the trip. I'm glad I did. The only down side I saw was how I packed. I had the biggest and heaviest bag in the group. It was kind of funny, actually. I was just glad I didn't pack my heels.
This February is truly a love month not only for romantic lovers but also for the nature lovers. This weekend, we have decided to get lost at Badian. I am proud to be a true blue Cebuano as I have been raised and have lived my whole life in Cebu City. However, I've never been to Kawasan Falls. What a shame! Well, today is the day that I say "not anymore". Yeah! I said that with enough conviction and pride! LOL I have always been apprehensive in going because my friends say it's a long walk from where you leave your vehicle.
August is a wonderful month to bond with families and friends. Because last week had a long weekend, we decided to spend the Friday at Coco Palms Beach Resort for some team building activities. We came fresh from our 5 Dysfunctions of the Team Workshop and we feel very good. One of the norms we had created was to include in our regular team bonding some group activities that will allow us to get to know each other more. This month, we decided to spend it at Coco Palms. We had overflowing food and drinks prepared too.
Last weekend, I celebrated my birthday. This year is different because we decided to celebrate it in Palawan. We usually travel on budget but because it's my birthday, we allowed ourselves to splurge. LOL This was my first visit and I fell in love with the place. I will let the pictures talk about it more.
Yesterday, I had the chance to enjoy my newly bought gadget from the US. It came handy last night when I was watching my movie series and everyone was asleep. This means no more watching movie that's bitin because your husband wants to sleep ahead and can't sleep with noise. I get to enjoy perfectly loud sound effects and good sound vocals. Because it's wireless, I can move around freely to any part of my room without worrying about wires.
Are you the type who mindlessly follow around your group when traveling? I am that too. I never had the need to think when traveling. I rely on my husband and just follow him around. LOL I had never traveled alone outside Cebu, moreso outside the Philippines, until I was asked to travel on business trip by the company I'm working with. This was on 2011. I was scared but gained confidence because of advices given by good friends. This post is my way of paying it forward.
