Biking by the Port of Tuburan

I never get tired of drifting, I want to go to new places where I can feel the sound of Mother Nature’s heart. It’s like I’m searching the parts of my soul I’ve given to my past life. I want to explore streets that don’t know the sound of my heart breaking and see things that aren’t stained with my tears.

My wandering feet with an adventurous soul

As my adventurous soul wandering constantly in the world full of temporary things. I don’t want to hold everything that will eventually be gone because it happened many times that the people I love became the people I lost.

The Tuburan Port

I know that the people I lost are not my destination. They are just my stop over where my heart quivers. I don’t want to end up being sad so I want to go away from your sight. There is something bigger to me, saying that I should find my place in the world.

Archdiocesan of  San Antonio De Padua-  A Semi-Romanesque Architectural designed. It was constructed way back 150 years ago and built on wood, limes, and cornerstone. Unfortunately, it has been damaged during the World War II. It still endures the wreck brought about by the test of times

 Life has many roads for travel and sometimes along the way. I want to fly and see the world with my own eyes.I want to find bigger footprints than mine to show me the way. At this moment in time, I got lost but I know I’m headed to somewhere.

Adela River is one of the grandest rivers in Tuburan, Cebu. In light of the river, they made a bridge that linked Daan Lungsod and Brgy. 2. The river is connected from San Juan, Guiwanon and Mantawihan waterway, the water of the river flows straightforwardly to the sea.

I just don’t know where the place is yet.I never knew that I will return to nature and turn myself towards wildlife. I solely thinking about all the birds, mountains and my wishes, the past and the future.

As I wander the river through the Valley of Spring of Hope. The mountains are slowly reaching the distance of the sky. At the current moment where I actually was, I never seemed to exist. I was lost forever in my mind and in my dreams of where I was.

Another famed attraction that will make you fall in love in the town is the granitic Marmol Cliff. A stunning and enchanting rock formations of two cliffs with a river that flowing naturally between them.

The flowing natural water between the rocks brought happiness in me. Knowing it will in due time reach its destination. It carries while singing its own song peacefully silent and deep. That moment in time, that river runs in me.

Molobolo Cold Springs


 

Now along the pond-side—now wading in a little, fearing not the wet.Now, by the post-and-rail fences, where the old stones thrown there, pick’d from the fields.

The beautiful and secluded Mantawihan Natural Spring

Far, far in the forest, before I think where I go, Solitary, smelling the earthy smell, stopping now and then in the silence.Alone I had thought yet soon a silent troop gathers around me,Some walk by my side, and some behind, and some embrace my arms or neck. They, the spirits of friends, dead or alive—thicker they come, a great crowd, and I in the middle.

The best moments in life are when you’re wandering mindlessly, admiring the beauty of everything with no destination in mind. And I drifted my adventurous soul in this peaceful town of Cebu.


Find your inner peace, live on your own, travel the world, listen to good music, be thankful for every true and good person who steps into your life, never look sad at the past, be happy that there’s a future waiting for you, craving for you, no matter how it’s going to be.
