I always wanted to visit Bohol as a child. What I know about Bohol are only the things that I read on books during my grade school years. I always wonder whats inside the chocolate hills the main reason why as a child I dreamed of going to Bohol because I loved chocolates so much :) I also wonder if tarsiers are really thumbsize only and desired of having it as a pet because I can easily sneak it in my pocket being the smallest mammal.
As soon as Cebu Pacific posted low fares on the internet I immediately booked plane ticket for 2. Dave and I planned to at least travel 2 international & 1 local destinations a year and Bohol was the planned itinerary for this year. The next thing I did after booking our plane ticket was to look for a hotel at Panglaw in the internet. I have listed many choices and read guest feedbacks. I decided to book at Cherry's Inland Resort aside from it being new it is also walking distance from Alona Beach.
An officemate suggested that I contact Jun Tambis for our day tour. I heard that he is a reliable tour guide in Bohol or if you need to rent a car. She gave me his number and I immediately texted Jun and ask if he is available for a Day Tour in Bohol on May 11, 2010. He texted back and gave me an affirmative answer. I also learned from communicating with him that they also do pick up service from pier to hotel & vice-versa, and also can arrange for the dolphin watching, snorkeling & island hopping. And so I booked everything to him.
