I booked our tickets last March 2016, and managed to bag a Manila-Dumaguete-Manila flight for 1000 pesos each with baggage!
Our trip was scheduled for Feb 8-14, 2017, so it was a longggggggg wait. And only a week before our flight, Rachelle’s leave approved, only then did I start laying out our itinerary and never made any bookings in advanced. In short, this was another #teambahalana true to the bones trip!
So here’s a summary of activities which we did, expenses wise I really cannot break it down, but I can tell you we are not budgetarian on this trip ??? Also Kuya Raymund was kind enough to host us in Bohol and Cebu, he has made our trip very very very special! Do contact Kuya Raymund Gaudiano Sande at 09151392249 / 09330281451 / 09055614067 to make your trip an unforgettable one.
I will try to post our per day activity and experience in a different blog =)
