At the beginning of the month I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to spend a short but absolutely beautiful 4 days on the stunning island of Bohol in the Philippines. While the majority of those days was spent enjoying all the luxury our Resort had to offer (read more about it here) we also used one day to adventure around the island and visit some of the incredible sights and landscapes that this little place in the Philippines has to offer.
After loading up our energy stores at the extensive and way too delicious breakfast buffet in the morning, we met our local tour guide and the little day trip around this beautiful island began.
Our first stop was the Bamboo Hanging Bridge that spans over the Sipatan River in Sevilla Bohol. When the bridge was first built a couple of years ago everything was made out of bamboo from the local forest. However over time the natural ropes started to deteriorate and were subsequently replaced with heavy metal ropes, resulting in a somewhat safer feeling. The short walk over the bridge is an adventure itself, with the bamboo making creaking sounds, the slight bounce and the swinging from side to side it feels more like a carnival ride without the safety straps.
