Cebu City was the real destination for this trip so early in the year, and as a runner Cebu City Marathon was naturally the expected reason, but this time it is not. The real reason behind this trip: to go to Basilica Minore del Sto. Niño to give thanks for all the blessings.

For my last day in Cebu it was a must for me to revisit the sites I wasn’t able to visit the last time I was here, and the first one on top of my head was of the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño. Since the location is in the vicinity of historic sites, a historic tour it is for my last day in Cebu.

Cebu was one of the destinations I’ve always wanted to visit for the longest time mostly because of my fascination with Philippine history. Unexpectedly, that wish came true! But there’s a catch—the trip was merely for only a day and a half! And here’s how this “surprise” trip came about.

After five days and five nights in Bohol and Cebu, it’s now back to reality. With tons of photos and a few videos to process, not to mention heaps of emails to read and respond to (both from work, media relations, personal messages, etc.) I can’t begin to imagine how to start sharing those wonderful adventures I’ve had! Well this is me attempting to give you some idea what happened with my grand adventure vacation:

This weekend is one of the busier weekends as far as running is concerned: five races are simultaneously held, two of which are in Bohol! Beginning with Metro Manila: the FINEX Run in SM Mall of Asia, The FS Run is Bonifacio Global City, and The Green Mile in Ayala Alabang. Elsewhere, in Bohol, there’s the Tagbilaran leg of the National MILO® Marathon, and The North Face Thrill of the Trail in Danao. It’s probably the same time that I saw two races simultaneously held in a province.
