Everything started with that line several months ago. Back then, there were eight of us who talked and dreamed about escaping to the beautiful island. In the middle of school projects, assignments, and requirements, the dream of graduating and leaving for that 3-days and 2-nights in that island, kept us going. Everyone in the group was all in for a few months, but we got stuck in different circumstances after graduation. Despite it, there were still three of us who were eager to visit, so we went.
At first, we thought we couldn’t make it because the date wasn’t final yet. Also, our friend who lives there can’t be contacted. We didn’t know what exactly we should do. It took us several Google searches, Facebook stalking, calls and texts to create a proper itinerary. We were a bit confident about it so we packed our bags and left Cagayan de Oro. Our ship left around 10 in the evening, and we arrived at Jagna Port around 5 in the morning.
It wasn’t the most convenient route but all ships leaving from CGY to Tagbilaran City was scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays only. We couldn’t leave on a Tuesday so we took the Jagna route.

The Famous Hills

Stops Along The Way

Someone took photos of us too but we didn’t buy it because well... we have our own camera. We just asked Kuya Naldix to take a decent group photo inste
