DIY Northern Mindanao Trip (Bukidnon-Iligan-CagayanDeOro)

One of the popular destination for family, friends and travel blogger wannabe like me is to travel around Northern Mindanao. And luckily, one of my friend was able to book a round trip flight to Cagayan De Oro for only P500.00 and who would say no to that? So together with my girl friends, we explore the three most popular spots there.

Usually, booking for package tour is one of the common and normal thing friends should do for more convenient and easy trip but we want to do it on our own way instead. Savage!

This is not the first time for me to traverse Mindanao provinces but this is the very first time that I travel with my friends. Well excluding Kalanggaman Island though since it’s just few hours from Cebu. Unfortunately, Neil wasn’t able to join us due to work but what matters is that I enjoyed. lol! So is it easy or hard to have a DIY trip when there are 7 of us in a group? Well, it’s quite hard for me since I’m the only one single in the group (insert cuss here) but also on a brighter side, it’s more convenient ’cause you can save a lot since you can share and divide the expenses. For the expenses, you can check below before checking the itinerary.

So all in all, I’ve learned that having an adventure with friends has an advantage as well — to save more money lol. But seriously though, it is fun indeed to try out new things once in a while. But I’d prefer trips with Neil if I have to choose between the two. Introvert problems?
