Day 3 – Friends!

Living abroad, you meet people from everywhere.  One of the best things of meeting new people when you’re abroad is that you know that at the very least, you have 1 thing in common:  you have an adventurous spirit.

Seen Here:  4 Adventurers on a very small boat on a very wavy ocean.  

Occasionally, you end up travelling at the same time, in the same place, as one of your friends.  Sometimes it’s on purpose, and sometimes it’s by luck.  By luck, 2 of our best friends had booked a holiday in the Philippines at the same time we were set to be there!  A little bit of schedule juggling made it possible for us to meet up on the island of Bohol.

When they told us they would be on Bohol Island at the same time we were in Cebu city, we knew we had this make it work and meet up!

We didn’t have a lot of time together but we did a lot with the time we had!  I have a special post planned for our time at The Bee Farm, but I wanted to share a little bit about our snorkeling adventure with Dedrick and Deb for yesterday’s recap.  It was definitely the most memorable part of our day!

The weather was a bit nasty when we woke up, but not nasty enough to cancel the trip, so at 7am, we head down to a little dive shop Dedrick had found, and set off on a boating adventure.  The water was choppy and the sky looked like it might unleash rain on us at any moment, but before long, it calmed down and we were able to enjoy some snorkeling!  The sun even peeped out before we left, and Dave and I both ended up with nasty sun burns too!

The captain of our first boat. Eventually we had to switch to a second boat. We had to pay for both boats individually. It’s a bit of a racket, but it was still a pretty good deal, so no one complained much

Here’s a short video on our way to the little snorkeling island.  I’m actually quite bruised from all the bumping around on this boat.  I was happy to get back on land when it was all over!

I’ll be back with another post soon!
