Rediscovering Tabogon’s Guiwanon Spring

I was at this small road-side store somewhere in Catmon eating a quick snack when the idea came to me.  As I was trying to remember all my options, I remembered a spot that I’d visited […]

Kugtong Spring: In Plain Sight

On my way to Moalboal, I suddenly felt the urge to explore the town of Alcantara. To be honest, the only places I’ve visited in Alcantara are their town church and the Boardwalk Zoo. And I’m pretty sure they have a lot more to offer. So, since I was already in the area, I thought, why […]

What Happened to Cambuhawe?

Many years ago, I was able to visit the Cambuhawe Springs in Balamban. I remember that there were numerous springs in the area and one (or two) of them fed a gigantic swimming pool. The water from the pool then flows straight towards a shallow brackish body of water which also flows towards the sea. Two weeks ago, […]

Finding Ronda’s Lapnis Spring

That’s it! This spring they call Lapnis just doesn’t want to be found! I give up! Like my first 3 tries, there was no one in the area who could point me in the right direction. Still, I decided to continue driving and look for the coconut trees near the ‘turn.’ I realized that there […]

Watering Hole

If you were born and raised in the big city, far from the lush greens, cool afternoon breeze, and the soothing sound of water,  nothing would be more appealing than a trip to the country. There, life is simpler, slower, and I dare say a lot happier. It is everyone’s dream to escape to the […]
