Travel Guide: Negros Island + Siquijor


Alam mo yung feeling na may mga travel goals ka pero it did not happened the way you planned it? Yes, frustrating and nakakalungkot pero minsan yung mga failed plans pala e may redirection that you never expect will result into something better. A few months back, I organized a climb to Visayas highest mountain which is Mt. Kanlaon, but the sleeping  volcano suddenly spews ash last November 23, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology then gave an alert level 1 making the mountain temporarily closed for hikers. So yes, our event was cancelled but since we already have tickets, we pursued with our Bacolod trip.




This happened last November 27-3. Here's our slightly planned, spontaneous travel trip itinerary for Negros Island + Siquijor.
