jvr island in the sky

jvr island in the sky

balamban, cebu


after getting off the multicab, we were still undecided if we will go home or not. grace and i were both eyeing the west 35 signage and khevin suggested we go to island in the sky.

the group was unanimous though in choosing to see the famous hanging bridge. we rode a hb2x going to the island in the sky. fare from the highway was 20.00/person.

i happily took photos of my flower finds:

when i went inside the white house, i couldn’t see a hanging bridge. uh oh… as it turned out, we were at the wrong place but since there was nice view at the balcony, we took a group-fie first before leaving πŸ™‚ thank you for the picture, grace! πŸ™‚ 

naa ra daw sa unahan pa ang island in the sky. we just walked towards the place and passed by the famous felixberto’s burger and hotdog stand.

and finally, we have arrived! πŸ™‚ 

after paying the entrance fee, we excitedly went inside πŸ™‚ 

remember the other girl trekkers? πŸ™‚ naa sad sila didto, hahahahaha! πŸ™‚ we said hi and then went on to take picturesssss at the hanging bridge πŸ™‚  spot the girls in the pictures πŸ˜€ 

labanan ng pag.selfie – girls vs. boys: 

time for solo shots now! πŸ™‚ 

group shots by the stairs para makuha daw ang trees: 

and my moment! πŸ™‚ salamat grace! πŸ™‚ 

if you ask me, there’s nothing special sa island in the sky, ang hanging bridge ra jud πŸ™‚ but maybe it’s just me ha – they do have the cable car but wala ko na.engganyo na mosakay. i did not even go down to see the pool kay kapoy na kaayo manaog sa hagdan. 

we maximized our 50.00 entrance fee by taking a lot of pictures πŸ™‚ 

but these are the best pictures of the hanging bridge that i was able to capture πŸ™‚ 

then we decided it was time to go home. khevin said that we would have a difficult time hailing a van that isn’t full or if we get lucky, an empty van. we planned on hitching a ride again (nigara baya ;)) but after a few tries to no avail, we started asking the rates of hb2x – it was 200.00 until sa jy. we decided to walk a little farther basin mas makabarato mi sa unahan, hahahahahaha! πŸ™‚ we were already negotiating with hb2x drivers for 150.00 per person when giparahan mi ug  van nga wala pa napuno. patience is truly a virtue πŸ™‚ we only paid 70.00 and we were brought until sa ayala terminal na πŸ™‚ 

more flower finds while we were waiting for a ride home πŸ™‚ 

and of course, posing next to a nindot na motor is always a good idea πŸ™‚ 

another group picture! πŸ™‚ 

and i just couldn’t get enough of the view of the mountain πŸ™‚ 

and maybe this would be for another adventure soon? πŸ™‚ 

i’ve been having sooooo much fun with my sundays lately and last sunday was definitely on top of the list πŸ™‚ 

thank you, our new-found friends: jons know, bryan and khevin for the hahahaha’s and mas daghang salamat to grace and madam kyra kay wala ko ninyo gibiyaan bahalag dugay ko ka.mata – feel nako grabe na kaayo ta ka.close, hahahahaha πŸ˜€ i am looking forward to our next laags πŸ™‚
