Leyte Christmas 2015

06 Jan

For so many years, our long vacation to Leyte has been materialised.  Together with Jeneth and Shana, we spent 8 days in this province to escape the  city during christmas holiday. Of course the planning was laid out before the first day. The routes, the places to see, what food to try.

We were so thankful to Jeneth’s highschool classmate as he was able to advice that it would be cheaper for us if we are going to sail via Danao going to Isabel Leyte especially because we’ll bring Cindy (our vehicle).

December 19, we traveled an hour and a half from our home in Minglanilla to Danao port. This is where EB Aznar shipping is located.

After clearing all the papers, we safely boarded and sailed for about 4 hours to Isabel, Leyte.

After we unboarded in Isabel, we immediately headed to Ormoc, which is Jeneth’s home city. Here we stayed in their camp downes house.

I decided to cool down with this classic favorite of mine.

We did our morning exercise the next day by jogging and enjoyed the view of Mt. Magsanga

I also had a good shot of this house cat from Jeneth’s home that morning.

Since it’s Sunday, I decided to visit my good friend Ronald Ramos in Brgy. Bantigue. Of course since I seldom see him and my godchild Eros, I better took a selfie with him right?

After that, i went to visit my auntie in Albuera. Went to poblacion and took the beautiful Fian residence. They always have this beautiful view during christmas season.

The next day, our plan is to go to Caimito beach hotel in Maasin Leyte. But I also want to see the tallest bridge in the Philippines, the Agas-agas bridge in Sogod Southern Leyte.

After a long drive, we reached Caimito beach hotel with this awsome view.

The girls loved the room

They also have a great food.

Around 2 pm, we decided to go to Maasin zoo. About an hour drive from Caimito beach hotel. We enjoyed seeing beautiful animals there.

The snake attacks! Kidding! ^_^

I forgot the name of this beatiful big bird

They also have local deer known to bisaya as “usa”.
image

They got ostrich and the eggs

After the long, enjoyed tiring day, I decided to sleep out of the comfy hotel. I just missed climbing and camping in the mountain.

Next day is to return to Ormoc. But I told them that we should not miss the tummy chicken barbeque in Hilongos port…BBQ ni Inday Alan.
image

December 23, I told myself that I should climb now Mt. Magsanga. This is the beautiful mountain that greet everyone when arriving Ormoc city.
After arranging my pack and coordinated with the quide, I travelled to Puting Bato National Highschool in Isabel Leyte. This is the nearest jumpoff when climbing Mt. Magsanga.

After about 30 minutes of hike, I had a chance to took this photo. The background peak is not the highest yet. It is located at the back of it.
image

I also had this beautiful view of Isabel from along the trail going to the summit.
image

At last, after an hour of hike, the view from the summit is all worth it.

Raul Dalumpines, my guide going to summit.

According to my altimeter, its 550 meters above sea level here.

December 24, we travel to Silago Southern Leyte because we were invited to celebrate christmas there. It was also our chance to see pacific ocean from this side of the province
image

To wrap it all, I enjoyed our trip in Leyte and hopefully I’ll be able to go back since I know there are still places that I need to explore in this beautiful province. I think I know why Mcarthur said his famous line…I shall return.
