Preview: 2015 Mount Sembrano Year-end Climb
My initial plan for my year-end solo escapade was to visit Buntod Reef Marine Sanctuary in Masbate but, due to some confidential reasons which I've decided not to mention here on my blog, I ended up climbing Mount Sembrano with stranger backpackers. Yup, with strangers again - this time with sixteen strangers I first "met" on Facebook.
I'll have a detailed blog of our climb soon so, for now, enjoy some of our photos below (I'm still waiting for other photos to be uploaded by my new found traveler friends):
Watch out for a detailed blog about our year-end climb. Thank you Cassandra, Pao, Altaire, Ella, Mary Grace, BJ, Bless, Raymond, Michael, Kevin, Nikki and the rest for the year-end climb. Happy New Year!!!
