While transferring images and videos to my online storage to regain iPad space, I saw these photos and thought of sharing.
These were taken in Balamban one sunny day in August 2011 when we went on a road trip on a whim. We thought it was a good time, because the skies were clear and the probability of low clouds or fog was low.
Along the way were a couple of cafes or fruit and corn stalls where you could buy your snacks or refreshments, if you didn't bring any. The park itself or mountain resort was on a high point of the rugged terrain of central Cebu. Up there, you get a breathtaking view of the mountains. And the weather is cool (saves you the cost of a plane ride to Baguio... hehe...).
Balamban is about 30 minutes to an hour's drive depending on where you're coming from. It's good to know that there are places urbanites or city dwellers can hie off to, to escape the dense city or the daily rush hour traffic and pollution. For Cebu, it could be the beaches, the pristine islands or, in this case, the mountains.
Just some snack and refreshments at Adventure Cafe because nobody had the guts to try the zipline. LOL
