While I have no regrets about spending only a weekend in Bohol, other travellers may want to see it on a longer visit to the Philippines. After all, getting to some of the prettier and more famous islands and beaches involves long rides over land and sea. If you’re tight for time and money isn’t an issue, though, you can try what V and I did. We flew from Singapore to Cebu on Friday, spent two full days in Bohol and returned on Monday.
When V agreed to spend a long weekend in Bohol with me, there was no way I was going to keep the Piscean away from the water. We didn’t travel to the Philippines just to sample only one beach and one reef at our doorstep, so, through our resort, we booked an island hopping tour from Bohol. It turned to be an eye-popping experience, in both great and not-so-great ways.
Travel springs surprises – that’s a given. Unlike life’s other surprises, however, you’re away from home and you seldom have the time to ponder opportunities that may not come your way again. When you’re not certain if things will work out, it’s not bad advice to go with your instincts.
I got 23 fellow travel bloggers from around the world to talk about the impulse decisions that they made and how they turned out. I’ve also added a couple of my own. Spoiler: Most went well and some of them were life changers!
