Siargao’s Enchanting Bucas Grande Sohoton Cave

After the surfing lessons we’ve prepared for our next adventure. This time we’ll be exploring the Enchanting Sohoton Cave!

Luckily we’ve meet new friends in Ocean 101 – Jay R, Michael and their African friend Jin. If not for them we probably won’t afford the P4,000 price of the boat ride going to Sohoton. Thank you Lord. :)

Wow! Siargao (Shar-gow): Three Islands Hopping

I was born in the sign of water
And it’s there that I feel my best
The albatross and the whales they are my brothers
It’s kind of a special feeling
When you’re out on the sea alone
Starin’ at the full moon like a lover
Time for a cool change…
