For the second stay of our trip to the Philippines, Tiff and I flew to Cebu and drove 2 hours to Oslob. By the time our flight got in, I was so tired, I crawled into the back of the van and slept the whole bumpy ride. I missed the scenic view, but the good news is, I had imprints of the seat latches on my body. Woot.
We stayed in a cute place we found on airbnb. Since it’s been almost a year since we were there, I don’t remember what it was called, but it was nearly empty, clean, and affordable.
Day 1 in Oslob, Philippines
On our first day, we took a little motorcycle taxi to a little dive shop.
We had several options for a dive, but settled on seeing white tip and black tip sharks, because…well…obviously. Unfortunately, the current on the first dive was INSANE and we didn’t have enough weights, so we spent the whole time underwater caught under a current fastly flowing through the underworld of Oslob. We saw one shark that was super far away. BUMMER!
The second dive was better and a lot calmer. Most of what we saw were creatures from Finding Nemo.
After the dive, it was time for chasing waterfalls.
Hiking Auginid Falls
For part 2 of our adventure, we hiked Auginid Falls, and it was gorgeous. It was a little bit crowded, but the cool thing was, since there are so many hikers, they have footholds carved out in the steep parts, and guides to take you up.
There were 5 levels of waterfalls and you could stop and play in each one. We were running a bit late, so we decided to hike to the top and then play at the top.
The best part about it was our guide said Tiffany looked like Gwen Stefani, and I looked like…wait for it…wait for it…Adele, and then he pointed to his chest and indicated that I had huge boobs. Um…thank you? I guess that’s what you get when you just had a baby a few months ago and are still nursing/pumping. TMI? Whatever. I don’t care.
At the top waterfall, they had those little fish that eat the dead skin off your feet. Gross but also an effective pedicure.
Here are some pics.
And the way home was gorgeous too!
Stay tuned for diving with Whale Sharks
