The following day, we woke up 515am for white island trip. we landed there on sunrise and luckily we were the only tourist at that time so photo-ops to the max. around 715am we left our homestay and aboarded ferry boat in benomi port at 815am for php135. after an hour, we landed balingoan port and rode a tricycle bound to balingoan bus terminal that will depart to agora terminal after 15 minutes of waiting.

DAY TWO:
CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY RAFTING

arrived in agora terminal after 2 hours from balingoan terminal and landed at divisoria past 12pm in divisoria. this was another race against time due my scheduled white-water rafting (wwr) was 12pm but thank God there was another set on 1pm, yehey. and yes, another batch of strangers i have to socialize.

upon arriving in lumbia, we spent some time for taking the raftign stuffs aboard, briefing and then split-up into 3 rafts. we were 5 in a raft, both of my raft mates were couples so somewhat out-of-place, but they seemed nice. the other girl was surprised upon knowing that im a lone traveler from manila and we talked about the 'into the wild' movie while her boyfriend was observing us, hehehe !!!

I availed the beginners mode due to no advance level available at that time. with 14 rapids, drizzle poured so sunburn was avoided and according to our guide there were normal rapids. dropped ourselves twice in river to swim and that was my 1st time enjoying a waterscape wearing a lifevest. haven't tried it before because i have drowning experience, hehehe! around 515pm the fun ended and before 6pm we arrived in divisoria. look for another cheaper hostel nearby, took a bath and nightlife once more.
