This is the start of my Davao Journey. I must say this trip was significant because it officially puts a check to me being able to be in the island of Mindanao for the first time! Thanks to No Borders Tours for making it happen!
Davao is home to the all famous Philippine Eagle (Pag-Asa) which is currently in danger of getting extinct. I got to visit the Philippine Eagle Center last Friday with the wonderful company of the No Borders Tours Group. There I found variations of eagles of different types, shades, sizes, and colors. The tour guide talked about initiatives done to replicate these species of eagles, particularly those that are only few of their kind. It was cool how some of the birds were just a few inches away from you which gives you a real close up view. I must say we were blessed with deep blue skies during day one! Also, I love the lush greens that surrounded the place from trees, flowers, to plants. Let's exclude the pests of course flying around in circles.
Well, check out my photos to see for yourself!
That's a glimpse of the Philippine Eagle Center. More Davao adventures await in my succeeding entries!

GIA headed for Alegre Resort in Cebu for an offsite team building activity last Wednesday. We were fortunate to be greeted with great sunny weather. Even if the Alegre Resort was 2 hours away from the Mactan Airport, we were very much entertained by JayLord who acted as our official tour guide throughout the duration of the ride. We even had Eric entertain us with a game of charades. We had light topics that were relevant. We had fun games that kept us all bonded. We had several eat all you can moments. Good thing I was able to control myself with the shrimps! :)
The resort had facilities that kept us entertained from tennis, swimming, fuse ball, table tennis, board games ... etc etc ... JayR gave me a crash course on tennis. Lyzet got me convinced to join the fun and swim with them. I had good times playing fuse ball and table tennis.
GIA had loads of activities prepared for us. The puzzle challenge, math problem, stuff those marshmallows, relays, etc etc. We had dinner by the beach as well with a band that kept us entertained. Of course, GIA was ready with their interpretations of the Sinulog Festival.
The best part for me was the competitive spirit across teams all the way, bonding sessions with the company of friends, relaxing at the beach, and enjoying the beauty of nature.
My G11 is alive again! Hope you enjoy the photos I took. :)
This was my first snapshot of Alegre. Several coconut trees surrounding a crystal blue swimming pool.
