Let me share with you a quick story for today. We traveled to the province of Cagayan in May of this year. We visited a number of places that included Callao Cave in Penablanca. Now, here is a snippet of our trip to Palaui Island.
This particular place was one of the stops we made during our island hopping day. It was a day filled with trekking and climbing, as our end goal for this stop was the Baratubut Falls.
During this part of the trek, I had to overcome my fear of crossing this hanging bridge. Yup, it was really scary, but I made it ahead of everyone as I took the photo above from the end of the bridge.
There's our tour guide, leading us to what she claimed as the easier trail. It was not that easy, but it was manageable. I suppose it was the heat that made it harder for us all.
Long before we reached the waterfalls, we came upon this tree with the natural heart-shaped hole on its trunk. According to Lani, our tour guide, many folks would pose by this tree and have their photos taken, esp. Chinese tourists, as they claimed it brings good luck.
We're not too superstitious, but we didn't pass up the chance to pose by the tree. I mean, who wouldn't want to have lots of good luck and good fortune, right?
After what felt like ages of more trekking and climbing up some huge boulders, we finally reached the intended destination -- Baratubut Falls. Unfortunately, it was a really dry summer, so we felt like even the waterfalls just had trickles of water. Still, we didn't pass up the chance of freshening up by the waterfalls. Heck, it was such a hot day!!
After everyone had enjoyed the brief moment by the waterfalls, it was time to go back where we started. A hearty meal that included freshly caught lobsters completed the trip to this island.
Then, it was time to head on to our next stop. But that would be shared for another time. I just wanted to highlight that special tree with a heart for this feature.
Till our next adventure! ^_^
