Where We Went: Moalboal (Cebu Island), Dumaguete (Negros Island) + Manila, Philippines
First Moment Here: The 3:45 ride from Cebu airport to Turtle Island Dive Resort covered on 45 miles. So, needless to say, it was slow, windy and a bit nauseating at times. The last mile or two of off-roading on dirt roads barely phased us but had Randy and Nicole (friends from Atlanta meeting us there) researching other properties for our stay.
Funniest Thing We Did: When we booked our last AirAsia flight of the trip we figured we better get a meal. Somehow we ended up with FIVE between the two of us. When the flight attendant dropped them off, he said, “Enjoy your buffet”.
Best Thing We Did: We took a vacation this week and stayed at two gorgeous dive resorts. We never had to think about where our next meal was coming from or arrange transportation (via tricycle) to dinner or diving. We got to spend six nights in three locations with Randy and Nicole. It was amazing being around friends, diving and enjoying the Philippines.
Tastiest Thing We Did: The food at Atmosphere Resort was all amazing but getting to enjoy a green salad with seared tuna was a highlight. I think I ordered a salad every day!
Dumbest Thing We Did: Randy and Adam ate hamburgers at Turtle Bay and lived to regret it.
Coolest thing we Learned: A marine biologist did a presentation on the underwater world in the Philippines and we learned a bunch of fun facts. Frogfish are the best! We also went diving with a guy named Julian who had an amazing underwater camera and shared his photos with us. These were taken on our dive!
