Cebu is blessed with so much beautiful nature spots and amongst them are waterfalls. Anywhere in the province you can visit a waterfall from a budget of Php 50.00 to a more expensive ones somewhere in north and south of Cebu. I was fortunate enough to have friends who loves waterfall chasing and we have explored last weekend the best kept secrets of Ginatilan and Samboan - its majestic waterfalls. We have conquered a total of seven waterfalls namely Inambakan Falls, Kampael Falls, Bugnawan Falls, Aguinid Falls, Hidden Binalayan Falls, Balaygsawa Falls, Da-o Falls in a span of two days. And here is the itinerary of the trip.

It was a dull afternoon and I got nothing better to do. The wayfaring spirit in me is begging my feet for an exploration so I yield to the idea that sprouted out of my head. Cebu is a very old city and it happens to have the oldest street in the Philippines that is still standing to this day. As Cebuanos, we often overlook the beauty of the old district of Cebu as new modern ones started to dominate the metro. The old district is filled with historical buildings, architecture and really feels that it has been frozen in time. I decided to take a challenge of going in a photowalk to recapture the timeless beauty of downtown Cebu in black and white. Join me as I go back in time to rediscover the undying charm of the old city.

Grecian architecture always has that appeal to us and somehow adds class to any structure. That is probably why they stick with this idea in designing the island to be called Fortune Island Resort.
