ITINERARY: BACOLOD-OSLOB-DUMAGUETE

August-borns… (left to right) me, Maki, Connie and Lori

We’ve been planning a birthday getaway to Guimaras but at the last minute (more like two weeks) we had to change plans since we couldn’t get the desired number of travelers.  We needed a plan B.  Dumaguete was an easy choice since there’s a bus that leaves Bacolod for Dumaguete every hour… but we’ve all been to the capital city of Negros Oriental many times before.  We also needed another activity to make the trip and the long weekend memorable.  Siquijor, Apo Island or Oslob? I’ve been to Siquijor before around the same month and the sea was more than rough (at least for me).  Apo Island would have been ideal for diving and only Connie knew how.   Dette, who loved to dive, wasn’t permitted by her doctor due to her special condition.  So, Oslob it is!

I wanted to make a detailed itinerary of the trip together with the expenses… but I forgot to write down everything and the first thing that slips through my memory are the numbers and the amount we spent during the trip.  Here’s a rough sketch of our 3D/3N birthday get away…
