important note (camiguin):
Camiguin is an island province of the Philippines located in the Bohol Sea, about ten kilometers off the northern coast of Misamis Oriental in Mindanao. It is the second-smallest province both in population and land area next only to Batanes. The capital of the province is Mambajao and it is a part of the Northern Mindanao region.

Arriving in lumbia airport:
since 830am was the departure time of supercat ferry bound to camiguin island, i have to race against time because i arrived 740am at the lumbia domestic airport. upon arrival, immediately exited the airport, and decided to rode a jeep bound to divisoria. then i arrived in divisoria at 820am, took a taxi there and advised the cab driver to please drive in haste to macabalan port. though the traffic was a little bit slow, i still managed to make it there at 830am. i paid the cab  for php100 (tip included), ran to the ticket booth for php515 and flew to the ferry that departed at 835am. I took a rest for a while and then searched for miss m, she was the leadwoman to the group that i will be joining. this is my first time to join a group that i didn't met so somewhat ashamed but i have to force the plan for my camiguin adventure. the ferry trip lastes 2 hours.

DAY ONE:
CAMIGUIN

arrived before noon in benomi port in camiguin. our tour driver driver was already waiting for us with his multicab. while on travel dust was very noticeable but views were astonishing. we visited first our homestay then started the camiguin day tour.

1. Katibawasan Water Falls – with entrance fee of php30. one of the waterfalls i really like due to its awesome scenic spot and the strong current flow. we took lunch on nearby picnic area and bought some souvenirs outside.
2. station of the cross – did some photo-ops on station 1 only due the group preferred to spent long stay in the springs. the attraction is nice.
3. sunken cemetery – same also, we just did some shots in the viewing deck, didn't hire any boat to come near the cemetery.
4. old church ruins – typical structure ruins, departed after 10 minutes of stay.
5. Sto. NiƱo Cold Spring – we spent long time on this place. body-dipping, swimming, hired a life buoy at php15 rental fee, drink fresh coconut and asked to cook adobong chicken for our dinner tonight.
6. Ardent Hot Spring – we spent time until around 6pm. body-dipping in the 2nd layer and socializing with other visitors.
