Wandering aroundThis is to remember the good times we had together with my estranged husband during our leisure time. So, it was early Saturday morning of August after our graveyard shift ends, where we had an itinerary for our road trip plan. Going to Busay Hills was our primary plan that day and good timing ‘coz it was also in time of our pay day. A bit feeling exhausted after working at night. Together with our most reliable motorcycle vehicle so we drove up into the hills of Busay.

Wandering Couple. At first, I never had any knowledge what other nice spots to look forward to in Busay. All I had in mind is the  well-known Mountain View and TOPS and actually it was included in our main route. Wherein these sites should have been our bucket list when we wanted to explore the entire Cebu province.

So we took the privilege of exploring the Busay Hills as going there isn’t a distant traffic and since our office is just situated in neighboring area. We both excited then on our trip however surprise because instead of turning left heading to Mountain View, we went straight which I got confused to where he wanted to go.
