About my travels, meeting people, adventures, food and culture
I don’t know why but I am always in awe every time I travel. From places I have been to, people I bumped into, new things I learned — everything is such a wonderful experience! And Romblon province is one of them.
Romblon province is composed of several islands and islets, in which every island has different characteristic – as per our local friends we met there (I have not been yet to other islands in Romblon but planning to go back and visit other places) – which made me more curious about it.
We arrived at the Odiongan (Tablas) port around 2AM so when we reach in our hotel, I just changed my clothes and went to sleep. After 5 hours of sleep, rushed into shower and went down for breakfast. After breakfast, we had an orientation meeting of our activity that morning then by late afternoon we conducted a symposium on television literacy to over 100 people from different government agencies and teachers in the province.
The next morning, the university staff invited us to go beach hopping so we explore every beautiful beaches they have. Surprisingly, this Looc town, about 10 kms away from Odiongan, has beautiful beaches. So clean and bluish that when you see them, you would want to dive in the water and just stay until the rest of the afternoon.
After beach hopping, we went to a local radio station for our interview.. Yes! My first time to be interviewed! So we discussed what we do at work and its advocacy. Afterwards, we headed North for fish feeding and swimming. This town has a fish sanctuary operated by the local department of fisheries. We took a boat which takes us about 10 minutes to reach the fish sanctuary. A large group of students were there… swimming, feeding the fish, cheering over with their friends. Such a happy moment.
After a few minutes, we already dive in the water and started feeding a school of fish…literally! And indeed fishes are so wonderful to look at. After feeding, we continue to enjoy the water. And because I so love swimming, my favorite thing to do is to jump off to the water and snorkeling around the area. How I wish I could do this more often..
