Seeking Siquijor & Dumaguete


This happened during the first week of June but a lot happened after.  So before this gets buried among the run entries, I’m posting this.  So last June, along with dental buddies for more than a decade, we set out to visit an area we haven’t explore before.  Arrangements mostly via the internet were done beforehand so it was basically a smooth sailing journey.

The humongous posts guarding the university…

And it should be.  It’s the first time that our friend, Dr. Badette gets to travel with us beyond Tagaytay with his family in tow (Uffe and the budding Ida Larsson).   We stayed for 3 days at Dumaguete where we explored its quiet, idyllic slow city life while we enjoyed Siquijor island (just an hour away by boat) for 2 days – taking in its endless white sand beaches, waterfalls and warm people.  Welcome to our adventure…
