  4. Hi, I am really enjoying reading your blogs. I am very interested with visiting Batanes. What airline did you take?

    I noticed that you are looking for a travel buddy to Surigao. I have visited Surigao with a travel club. The place is great too. Very blessed. The following are the places I visited there:
    – Enchanted River
    – Cabgan Island/Snake Island
    – Tinuy-an Falls
    – Britannia Islands
    – Sohoton Cove

    • wow, thanks! i’m glad you’re enjoying yourself — that means a lot!

      Batanes – presently, only Seair flies to Batanes.

      Thanks for listing all the interesting places you visited in Surigao. My busy schedule prevents me from doing my research. Can you share your itinerary with me?
