I won’t deny the fact that slowly, the “to be a traveler” dream is slowly drifting away within me. With work, responsibilities and time split up it’s been hard for me to go out at least go somewhere where there are other people, and my aim this year is to at least travel twice and give myself a break – which I am dying to wish it will happen.
Since I’ve started this blog, I’ve only been to a couple destinations here in Cebu – and just Cebu. Although I’ve been only focusing more on Cebu, there are still a couple of people who found me and ask for my help - even as simple as booking a flight via Cebu Pacific website.
I call this post the “Hunger Gay” because it sounds similar to the “Hunger Games” and I’m hunger, hunger for adventure, hunger for travel, hunger for change. Although I’ve already done a couple of adventures here in Cebu, like trekking.
Jumping from the cliff to a 30 feet deep cold waterfall – and it was just me and a good guy friend who did this.
And my all-time favorite, the zip line – says who that a large woman can’t do this? Huh?
I’m still hungry for another adventure that I’m not quite sure that will happen. But to give you an idea of what I’ve been looking forward to do after those adventures, I’ve come up with a couple of activities and adventures I hopefully want to do. It’s kind of a bucket list of things to do and achieve but I made it short so it will be achievable – trying to be realistic here!
Water RaftingMost of the people and bloggers who have done water rafting says the best one is in Cagayan de Oro – which is just 2-3 hours away from my home town. I didn’t even know that there’s a place for that kind of activity in CDO, I mostly saw buildings back then.
If I could be able to book a flight to Cagayan de Oro and do the water rafting, I will definitely try to come back in my home town, Bukidnon. I haven’t been there for the last 10 years and I miss the fresh air and the fresh milk, and of course my friends.
Scuba DivingI’m fat and I am pretty sure I will not look good in a scuba diving suit – can you even imagine me, in the suit? – but I saw a couple of my blogger friends (only on Facebook) where they’re not necessarily wearing the suit but I think it’s best to wear one right?
SurfingI can’t imagine myself surfing too – you’re not alone. But I think it’s one of the greatest achievements I’ll be able to do if at least I could learn and really surf my way to the waves, even at least once.
I’ve heard the best places to surf in the Philippines are in Baler, Camarines Norte and La Union, the waves are not as big in other countries but I think I could survive with those waves – don’t you think?
Road BikingI’m a biker since I was a kid, from 4 wheels bike (1 at front, 3 at the back), BMX to mountain bike. And when I saw the movie “The Secret World of Walter Mitty” where he rode a bike to chase this photographer, I totally envy that scene. So peaceful, no trucks to worry (you can even sleep on the street – I think), and free to do crazy bike exhibitions.
Farm LifeI grew up at a province, a small town where almost everybody knows everybody and most of the lands there are either residents or rice field. My grandfather bought a mountain before and because he have 9 children (and my father as the eldest) they have to split it up and my father give his part to his siblings.
I think I’m quite alike my father, I love the farm, I love the nature, a love the simple life – but now I can’t survive with the internet. So it would be ideal for me to try the simple life.
Kris Aquino has a great timing on this, where she featured the Gawad Kalinga Enchanted Farm and I saw that they have a lot to offer there. I would say it’s the ideal place for me to visit and try the farm life even for a short while and at the same time help the people from there, and also learn from them.
Note: I'm very interested with the fresh milk - I love fresh milk!
I’m working from home, I work online, get paid online, pay bills online and gladly not eat online. So it’s been quite a long time since the last time I’ve done some good socializing and being outside of the box. And if ever I go out these days, I only meet a couple of people, people I just need to meet (like a client) or my best friend - so obviously I do need this done, help!?
With all the things going on, not only to myself or my family, but also to other people in the country and the rest of the world, we all need to aspire ourselves from time to time to remind and make ourselves lift up and have hope for a better life ahead. And with this list, I'm hoping to at least remind myself of these things I could achieve and enjoy in this world.
Let’s see if I’ll be able to do at least a couple of these before I quit blogging (hopefully not) or at most before I die. But I would say, if I could at least achieve a couple of the things on the list, it will be totally a life changing experience for me, because I’ve made it outside my box, outside my comfort zone.
