Undecided on where to go for my first solo trip, I left it to fate and fate led me to Camiguin.
Camiguin is an island province in Northern Mindanao. It’s a usual side trip of those plying the Cagayan de Oro – Bukidnon – Iligan route. In my case I took the 40-minute flight from Cebu. From the plane window, it was already picturesque – I could see Mt. Hibok hibok towering right smack in the center, and the iconic White Island shaped like a boomerang. Behind me, I could hear a local guy seated beside a foreigner, proudly telling her what sights to see and how safe the place is, and this just made me more excited.
