My First Bohol Trip
Bohol has a significant place in my heart. My first step in Bohol was June of 2007 and ever since then I have been coming back to Bohol.
I had a very good impression with Bohol and the Boholanos, during my first trip I was lucky to be with the right people. I was with a Boholana team mate "Lily" from Convergys and their CVG Barkada, hmmm I was a "kuyog baboy" then. lols...

When we arrived Tagbilaran, we were picked up by her family and registered tour guide who is also a family friend. We immediately had a tour around Bohol. Before the whole tour started, the tour guide welcomed us (the guests) in Bohol and sang Bohol's Hymn, which is so lovely. As a first timer, I was so impressed with how the tour guide welcomed us... indeed it was a warm welcome from a Boholano. I feel so special then, I was happy I was being treated like a real tourist, which I hope everyone would experience.
We've been to many places of Bohol and toured every tourists destinations in Bohol and in Panglao Island, stopped by in every old Catholic Churches and pose in every panoramic view.
Indeed I enjoyed a lot. One thing I didn't enjoy that much during that visit was the Panglao Beach. I mean I know they're lovely! white sand and clear waters, yet I couldn't deep in it because I have my monthly period. Yeah panira masyado. lols.. That's why before I left Bohol the next day, I told myself,"I'll come back.. humanda!".
MEMORABLE PEOPLE I've met during the trip:
Who would have thought that Lily's aunt is the trainer of the famous LOBOC Boys Choir? Oh yes, during our visit we stopped by their house and met her aunt. Of course, it's a once in a lifetime experience so we had her play multiple songs before going to another tourist destination. :)
MEMORABLE FOOD I tasted the first t ime:
The Carabao skin chicharon! hmmm it taste good. hehe
Try also the Ice cream at the butterfly garden, it's yummy.
