Cascades Nature Park, Compostela, Cebu

11/26/2020


 After months of being staying at home and for like almost a year for not being able to do some activities. We finally found a place where we can catch up with our family once again and enjoy a beautiful time to experience nature.


It looks around almost 2 hours to reach the place from where I live and when we go there. If felt so beautiful and romantic. Just like going to a farmhouse.

I drove there and welcomes by these huge rocks and as I go through the driveway,  I was enthralled by how huge the landscape is and also the trees that surround us. It got me even more excited to go there. 

We settled in a tent with tables and chairs and were able to sleep in the grass as if we are actually in a picnic enjoying the sun rays and also the scenery as I drift away to sleep.

By the time I woke up, I checked the place and played along with family members and this huge swimming pool where everyone jumped in and played to their extent until it was time for more adventure.

We did the kayaking, paddleboard, and that 4 people like biking in the lake. It was such a great experience that everyone should try and enjoy. 

Check out our videos to get a glimpse of our adventure.





Dragon Fruit Farm in Liloan, Cebu

11/24/2020


On an unexpected day trip, We end up going to Dragon Fruit Farm in Lilo-an, Cebu. It was a two and thirty minutes road trip from my place to the Dragon Fruit Farm, Lilo-an, Cebu. I conveyed my uncle's vehicle going up to the Farm, as I have never been there. 

It was a beautiful 30 minutes drive from the main road of Lilo-an to the Dragon fruit farm, despite the roads were bumpy and a little steep with some roads are along the cliff as I drive and the fact it was a narrow road to have two vehicles running without the other one to stop. 



Arriving at the Dragon fruit farm, the place was breathtaking, as if nature was talking to me to cheer up. Well, the place was good enough to experience this natural beauty. We were 11 in total when we visited the place. There's a good parking spot across the farm where people gathered to either get inside of the farm or getting out of the farm. The parking lot was full and people still keep coming.


We went there inside and had a chance to enjoy this beautiful to enjoy the beautiful scenery. We had our photos taken and also took the chance to film our vlogs during the trip. Most of the things we did were not captured on the lens but the beautiful serene place and experience was something new to us. 

Once we were inside, we can't stop gushing and thinking of having a farm in the city, or a similar farm in the province. Many beautiful thoughts had come across as we go explore the farm. Though you can only see similar crawling cactus and its dragon fruit. Still, we enjoyed nature's view.

As the sun was about to set, we had stayed in this lounge overlooking the river. We sat to talk and looked among other locals with their families gathering and enjoying this new experience. Outside food was allowed to be taken inside their lounge and use their table and seats if only we did know, we would have done the same thing. 


If you feel that visiting a dragon fruit, then here's a guide for you. I'm sharing this information base on someone who drives a vehicle.


  • Parking Fee:  20.00 PHP
  • Entrance Fee: 20.00 PHP 
  • Dragon Fruit Milk Shake: 45.00 PHP 

  •  Dragon Fruit : 150.00 - 200.00 PHP per Kilo (depends per season)* 


*Their prices may vary and which dragon fruit farm you'll be going to. 


The place closed at 5:00pm and we waited a little longer until almost everyone has left. Since we do follow the protocols of social distancing. We were the last ones to go, as we have waited for our milkshakes to be served after 2 hours, that's how long we waited for the milkshakes because they had such a demand for their drinks. 


We went for a city road trip once in a while that's because we had matters to attend to, but this trip was different it was an experience that we get got after being held captive in a dungeon. that's how I felt during the six months of strict lockdown. I know it was for everyone's' safety but it felt like a prison for someone like me who can't stand still in one place. It was the freedom that we had lost.


Good thing, We made this trip and gave us this ray of sunshine to see that the world hasn't ended. The world is still coping and thriving and a little goes a long way. We continued our trip until late in the evening because we just want to bond more and appreciate the beauty of nature. If you want to see our video. Click this link here
