GUIMARAS FLOATING COTTAGE, A MUST TRY FOR EVERY TRAVELLER



Most of time, I think my body is connected to the sea. It feels most alive when my feet would dangle up and feel the cold waves rushing back and forth. The sand in my feet and water touching my skin. I am at peace.
Even on my most normal days, I would plan out for a quick weekend getaway, and the experience is more exciting than the last. With friends behind me, and a beer in my hand, I am ready to face the road.

And so, we took the trail that led us to the famous Guimaras Floating Cottage. Its quite a surprise that only a few people, mostly Ilonggos, know the place. This beauty can compete to that of Manjuyod in Negros, or the common dream beach, Maldives.

Found in Nueva Valencia, the cottage is located in the middle of the sea surrounded by green islands and rich marine life.

This was taken on the way to the cottage.
You can see various marine life and a vast space of mangrove

How to get there
· Ride the Bangka from Ortis Wharf going to Guimaras. (Php14.00/ head)
· Upon arrival, directly proceed to their tourism office for assistance
· Either ride a mini van or jeepney going to ALIBHON TERMINAL/ PUBLIC MARKET for Php13.00
· Ride a private motorcycle to the drop off point of the Floating cottage (Php70.00/ head)
· From there, you can hire a banka (boat) at P400/3hrs to bring you to the floating cottage

You can also opt to hire a private jeep at P2000 for a round trip to directly go to the drop off point or a multi cab at P1500. We were in a group of eight (8) so that is way cheaper for us to rent a private cab.





I just find this crafty and nice, =)

You can enjoy the whole afternoon goofing around, breathing in the sweet sea breeze or maybe telling snippets of stories to friends. The caretaker was really nice. She gave us ideas on where to go next in Guimaras. I guess you can expect more adventures soon. =)

It's fun to goof around the place when you are with friends.

I will never cease to love the beach


Definitely a genuine smile for everyone on our way home.


It was really one of the best trips I had with my friends. Bourbon on a sunny day at the beach. Not bad. It was all smiles and less drama. And that made all the difference.

Say hi to my happy friends who were also my crying and fighting friends. See you on the next trip!

The lonesailor will go on another adventure to bring you more discoveries!

BUDGET TRAVEL TO TATLONG PULO, GUIMARAS




I sometimes have these 12 midnight realizations which can turn into early morning beach trips. In those not so rare moments, I discovered tatlong pulo. A simple and private island in Guimaras, Tatlong Pulo boasts its blue beach surrounded by two islets. If the tide permits, you can readily swim from one island to the other.

7 COMMON THINGS YOU DO IN BORACAY: A GUIDE FOR FIRST TIME TRAVELERS


“The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G. K. Chesterton

Boracay! Oh the wonderful sun and the blue sea makes me want to dive right back into my thoughts.

As I think of hundred ways to start this blog, my mind wanders to every beautiful beaches I have been to. But what can be compared to Boracay? Oh the wonderful sun and the lovely blue waters!

My thoughts come rushing back to the those three wonderful days I’ve been there. This time, not with friends but with family. Which in fact is more exhausting, chaotic, and fun.

What more can I tell you about this beautiful destination? There’s not much lounging, drinking booze of sleeping beside the beach that happened. Although I am more for that laid back beach experience, it’s the first time our family ever went out on a trip.

And so, at 4am in the morning, we braved the roads to Malay, Aklan.


How to get there

From Iloilo:

  1. Take a cab going to Tagbak Terminal
  2. Grab a ceres liner going to Caticlan, Aklan
  3. Go down the Boracay Jetty Port
  4. Take the boat going to Boracay Island
From Manila

  1. There are Manila- Caticlan flights available
  2. Take a trike going to Boracay Jetty Port
  3. Ride the boat going to Boracay Island




I am sure most people have heard about Boracay Island. With various websites and international media that features the island, it rose to fame not only to the locals but to foreign tourist also.

Although the island might be really crowded on certain days, Boracay still continues to shine its glamour as the best destination in Asia. With me, my brother, my sister, my niece and everybody there, I don’t know how it can get more chaotic.

But here are some most common things to do in Boracay Island.

Sex and the Iloilo City: Beer and Bladder Explosions



I just wanted to make make him feel special and that he could trust me.

I wanted it to stop, but it was a lie I can never escape with.

Nope, as much as I wanted to tackle living cadavers and mannequins in bedroom action something is stopping me. Now I am quite aware how alcohol reacts in desperate measures.

As explained by my intelligent crush and ultimate target for some steamy relationship, alcohol triggers the brain and increases the libidinal drive for almost an hour. It wasn't my gall bladder which was aching after a long drink over a cold cup of "tea", it was actually something near my bladder  that is itching to explode. Imagine the feeling of the universe collapse the moment you release it. I do like my ever intelligent crush and my ultimate target for a relationship. Hope progress is soon to come. 

Don't worry. No one ever knew. *smiley*

On another note, drinking is a habit and much more like a reason to do neurotic activation and just simply blame it drunkenness or loss of sobriety.  But that is self explanatory. Let's talk about more interesting issues like bladder explosions and alcohol.

For better or worse, there is an intimate relationship between sex and alcohol in our culture. Many people use alcohol to loosen themselves upin anticipation of having sex with a new partner. Alcohol increases aggressiveness to some and can even increase your libidinal call. It is a commonly held belief that alcohol is an aphrodisiac. And more sexually active people becomes better with a dash of tequila.  However, the real sexual effects of alcohol is complicated, and there are many serious negative sexual consequences of drinking too much and drinking too often. Like regrets, hunger for more, or worse, having fun. 

For instance, I  drink to strengthen my weak senses and stimuli interaction. Alcohol boosts up my irrational thinking which may trigger me to do sub conscious things which I try to repress and evaporate when I am sober. The after effect is unbelievable.

As hard as I try to remember, I once woke up with a heavy head, a naked body and a weary heart thinking it was just more than what we did that night. However, we can never rely on what if's and maybe's hanging around the corner of our sane mind when everything was alcohol induced. Trust me. I had it the "hard" way. 

After quite some thought, I realized however, that I wanted to get drunk again, do the same cycle i did the night before, cut some crap, lose the drama and know what the real score might be.

I ain't bitter. I just wanna have fun in a clean, and decent way. Even sex has emotions too.
Frankly, it wasn't just my bladder, I had my heart with it too. nyahaha

Finally, I realized, never drink and sleep, in other people's bed. Bad idea. Very bad idea.
So much for sex in the Iloilo City, not Sex and the Iloilo City.

Warning: this may not be a true story. 

wink.

Sweeney Todd Laugh.

I am crazy.

A GUIDE TO HAMBIL BEACH, CARABAO ISLAND, ROMBLON




It was both a surprise and an adventure for me to visit Romblon. We may not be aware, but Romblon is actually an hour away from Caticlan. Believe me, the adventure was more that it was called for.

BUDGET FRIENDLY TRIP AT CADIMAHAN RIVER TOUR, ROXAS CITY




The last week of August is built with long weekends and hello summer vibes. I was really itching to go somewhere but do not have enough reason. I wasn’t stressed at work, I have a pending task at home and not to mention my financial budget being stretched.

But the sailor in me calls for the sea. Or maybe some seafood. Or maybe both

And so we opted for a cheaper treat. ROADTRIP

Sex and the Iloilo City: “Rebirth”




Hello friends! i'm back!


Ever since I was a kid, I always wanted to become a sex expert. A young free spirited sex expert who can tackle issues that no normal human being can talk about. Yup, you read it right, a sex expert. 

During kindergarten I would snoop around my teachers table and look for obscene shenanigans and look curiously to every physical angle my mind could goggle up so that I can tell my friends some tattle tales they have never heard before. My best friend Frances would even bring me to her house and show me different fortnightly displaying distinctive neurotic organs contracting to uncommon bodily structures of another specie. My first encounter with a female sex organ was on my 4th grade. My friend, Voldemort, had me and my other friends drop by their house for lunch. It was the most amazing experience a kid can ever witness. We slowly entered his room with trembling nerves and sweating armpits as Voldemort bit by bit opened the gates of a foreseeing haven for untimely pleasure. He made us peek into the long hole and watched his parents drench themselves doing the atypical intentional act of self expression, the next was legendary. We cried subtle tears that day being in the state of disbelief thinking his father was killing her mother with a humongous built in knife, even though its not pointed. I was so scared with the unsettling feeling in the stomach that made me want to vomit at the same time.

After quite sometime, we never stopped giggling. What a show.
