Top 5 Adventures in My Bucket List for 2017!

bucket list

Another year will come this means exciting adventures await! I have been mostly trekking for this year and I wanted to venture out on other activities for the upcoming year.

I was thinking and was listing down to my bucket list that should be crashed out sooner. Moreover, this is the Top 5 Adventures that I’m thrilled and looking forward in 2017 (I’m excited!!!)

  1. More Major Climbs!

2016 was full of minor climbs surrounding the island of Cebu. I only had the chance for a Major Climb at Mt. Pulag and it was never repeated until the year ended.

But, I’m beyond excited that my friends are planning out a series of major climbs for the first quarter. Couldn’t this be the perfect adventure to look forward to a trekker like me? Nearby provinces are seen as prospect mountains for the major climb. Amongst them are Mt. Talinis in Negros and Tres Marias at Biliran. NCR Trekkers had already conquered the mountains from the previous years and newbies like me wanted a comeback. I’m happy with it because these are major climbs yet the budget is just minimal.

My heart is jumping up and down as the months are fast approaching and I am preparing technically, personally, emotionally and all Lysss. Lol!

  1. Sardines Run!

My life was surrounding with mountains and waterfalls, maybe this time I’d give chance to the depth of the marine life and do some free diving! Personally, I don’t know how to dive and I’m an occasional swimmer. I’m a bit scared of the depth of the ocean but I’m breaking those barriers to be amused by the beauty of the ocean. Several photos of sardines run and swimming with turtles got me pumped up because it’s surreal and mind blowing. Let’s see it on 2017!

  1. Rock Climbing

I’m considered to be clumsy because my entire life was revolving around nerdy stuff and I’m just starting to get physical. There were several times that rock climbing gets involved during treks. Then I was struggling because I could barely carry my weight. Even without additional loads, like my bag and stuff, I could get my biceps and triceps work together to get me up. Though I use my leg power to get me through that, there will be times that you’ll have to use your arms to climb. I wanted to get fit and try out rock climbing so bad to enhance and prove to myself that I’m not clumsy anymore. Luckily there’s a near destination in Cebu for rock climbing but I don’t have anyone willing to go. I hope I can find someone! Hahaha!

  1. Spelunking

Once I tried exploring the caves of Bonbon and I am eager to do again some spelunking! The rush of adrenaline and being to see the beauty of the stalactites and stalagmites makes it worth a redo. However, this time I wanted to try in the caves in Minglanilla or in Siquijor. Being exposed to risks oddly satisfies me whenever I conquered it!

  1. Parasailing

It’s considered to be luxurious because of its cost but it’s definitely a worth the penny! I wanted to feel the wind breeze kissing my skin and at the same time enjoying the overlooking view while flying. Originally, I wanted to try Sky Diving next year but I doubt my pocket permits. Thus, I’d venture out another option which I guess is cheaper.

I’m looking forward to doing it at least at Mactan Island or somewhere awesome!

 

 

Definitely, adventure is a diverse world that offers many activities that get you pumped up while having fun. It’s one of a kind experience that one longs for, a break away from the daily pressure and stress of life.

Would you come with me and crash out these items from the bucket list? Tara!

  • Tara, rock climbing ta! Haha! Sheila of Adrenaline Romance invited me several times pero I had to decline ato na time because I was in GenSan for a long while. I’d really, really love to try diving and see the underworld but I don’t know how to swim which is why I’m scared, lol. Parasailing was on my list for a long time and also paragliding. Hmmm I wonder if I can do them next year! Hopefully I can start!

  • New adventure this coming 2017.. pero ako trekking pa ko sa pinakagamay nga mountain.. twin mountains..haha.

  • CAOLANO

    Now that’s a bucket list!!!
    We’d love to join your climb to Mt Talinis. Any idea how to become a member of the NCR trekkers?
    ~Ace and Demi

    • Cool! Unfortunately NCR trekkers are for NCR Corporation’s employees but we are open for guests. I’m just not sure if there are still slots available. :/

  • Vincent Amorio

    parasailing is very nice pero i suggest ig dugay imong stay sa panganod pagda ug food kay tingali’g ma-bore ka. hahaa but the experiemce is really amazing.
