Lake Sebu, Seven Falls, and Around 

The van was a bit cramped and old. I think I was the only one who was not from around sitting among the locals. A one hour journey that’s mostly quiet with the occasional Ilonggo slicing through the air. More often though I’d be staring at the relaxing scenery while the cool mountain breeze peeked through the window even when it’s already past noon.

[UPDATED] Where to stay in Siargao: The Matanjak Guest House 

Matanjak Guest House is located in General Luna, Siargao. It’s between the famed Cloud 9 and the General Luna town. There are 5 rooms in Matanjak. Each one having a balcony or a terrace which I thought was amazing. At P800, I never had a balcony before ha! P800 a night may be a bit high for a solo budget traveler but Matanjak is actually one of the few places (if not the only place) with this price.

Batanes: The island of Batan 

Batan island is usually the base of most travelers. Here your plane will land in the capital Basco where most establishments are found. When I first saw Batan island from aboard a plane I was leaning my face hard on the windows in excitement. The aerial view is a good start in seeing the hilly lands of Batanes.
