Bohol, Philippines

30 Dec

We got there near closing time which was a good thing as it was a bit quieter. The guide leads you down a narrow underground stairwell into a dark and humid cave about the size of a 2 bedroom apartment. You feel like you are in for a real adventure the minute that cave smell hits your nostrils. Something flew next to my ear and I shrieked thinking it was a bat (I have long hair ok!). It was actually a really strange-looking bird with a short body and wide wings so it actually does look like a bat.

The guide, in friendly Philippino style, offered to adjust the light settings of our camera and take all our pictures for us. He had a whole photo shoot planned. The first shot was of the paintings visible on the cave walls.


In one of my earlier posts about my honeymoon in Thailand I spoke about the traditional Thai Bamboo dance. Well it seems the dance is also a Philippino tradition (don’t know who stole it from whom). Here is a video of my attempt at the crazy dance.

Looks like a real fun time!

    The tinikling (bamboo dance) is definitely a dance that will leave your toes sore if you won’t get the timing right!

Let us know what you think!
