I inspired to run

     For being hiatus in outdoor activities like hiking trails, I gained almost 10Kgs. I decided to work out again and to be physically fit and to try running because I got inspired with my friend who’s also passionate in road running and trail running she already attended many races here in the Philippines. One of her favorite quotes is 

“In running, it doesn’t matter whether you come I first, in the middle of the pack or last. You can say, ‘I have finished.’ There is a lot of satisfaction in that.” – Fred Lebow

     Perfect day, perfect timing for the invitation of Sir Albert to me for that day, because of a very long vacation that I only stayed in our house. At 3PM we arrived in Ace Water Spa almost 4hours we enjoyed the 25 different massage system, 6 hot herbal pools and the sauna, unfortunately I don’t have a picture inside the building because it is prohibited to take picture. Eating time is allowed after swimming time only.

     During our stay in Calaguas the Mayor of Daet Camarines Norte approached one of our friends after our shoot for our video documentation, Mae mentioned to the mayor that we are group of travelers and immediately invited us for a dinner to his hometown. One of the reason why the Mayor invited our group was to visit the famous beach surfing destination in Daet Camarines Norte the Bagasbas beach. Perfect for sidetrip or extend your day in Camarines Norte after your Calaguas trip.

Buntot Palos/Hiden Falls sidetrip to Panguil River Eco Park

     My friend Gab asked me if it is advisable to hike by a first time hiker the Buntot Palos or most commonly known by the locals as Hidden Falls because he will invite his girlfriend, I said to him yes, although the trail is not so steep, but the problem is that the trail is very slippery and muddy when it is raining, just like the other trails like Mt. Marami, Mt. Batulao and other mountains, the same trail usually used by the horses.

     I went there last January 2014 with the renowned travel bloggers and other new friends and I’m confident because I already scaled the trail, and it is also advisable to a first time hiker who is physically fit and he can invite his girlfriend without any experience in hiking.
