Yes, Sunday finally! That just means one thing – rest day, and it is intended for travels and adventures. And so there I was sitting in my cubicle so anxious as I waited for my cue. Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. Why does the time seemed so slow? Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. I was getting impatient by the minute, TIME UP! 5am- logged out and off I go.
With a spirit full of anticipation, I hurried home to pick up my travel necessities. Bag on my back, a big smile on my face, my expectation getting higher as I draw nearer to the bus terminal. My travel buddy for this adventure already waiting for me, travel-ready as well – Dilon of Chasing Wonders Ph.
[captioid= Both excited for the day ahead of us, 1 hour and 30 minutes bus ride and we’re there[/caption]
1st Stop – Bagatayam Falls
Just a few minutes from where we got off from the bus, there lies the Bagatayam Falls, named after the baranggay where it is located the falls is just about 5minutes away from the highway making it very accessible to people. And there I was sitting in the moss-covered rock, in awed of the beauty of nature. Sit there in silence just killing time. After literally spending a very short tine at the falls, we then move on to out next destination.
2nd Stop – Binaliw Spring
Located in the northern part of Cebu, there lies a spring believed to have miraculous healing water. And although I’am not a believer but it indeed made me curious as to what really is the reason for this particular destination to be getting better visitor rate. Binaliw spring is a shallow spring in the heart of baranggay Bagatayam,
Many rumors have it that the water oozing out from the mouth of the falls (used to be) has an extraordinary ‘healing powers’.
The site attracts many visitors from various places in the province and other regions for various reasons: to enjoy the cold spring water or to get healed from some form of illnesses.
Anyhow, in this page we can only talk more about the spring’s natural beauty and its surrounding nature and not so much about its extraordinary ‘healing effects’.
