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...
