Island of Healing- SIQUIJOR!

Welcome to the Island of Healing!

Siquijor is the smallest island province in the Central Visayas Region. It's geographically located midway between the Visayas and Mindanao Islands. It is bounded on the Northwest by the islands of Cebu, on the Northeast by Bohol, on the East by Camiguin Island, on the South by mainland Mindanao and on the West by Negros Island. On its northern shore lays the Bohol strait, on its southeast shore, the Mindanao Sea.
Siquijor is the third smallest province in the country both in terms of population and land area, after Camiguin and Batanes. For a time it was sub-province of Negros Oriental. Called Isla del Fuego or the "Island of Fire" by the Spanish before, Siquijor is considered by many Filipinos to be a mystical island, full of mysterious and mystical island, full of witches and other supernatural phenomena.

WHAT I LEARNED from this trip:
1. Don't be deceived by what you hear about the place. This place may have a bad notion about witchcraft and all that stuff , but mind you, it is a place full of wonder and magic. Serenity at its best!!!
          2. This place has a lot to offer, good foods, nice restaurants, good set of accommodation and friendly people. It's like  a PLACE with GOOD SUBSTANCE!
3. Money is not that important if you are in this place. It all boils down to simplicity. The simpler your life is, the happier you become. Cost of living in this place is basically that low and affordable by anyone. No wonder a lot of foreigners tend to stay here permanently.

*****Surely, I'd be back there and explore all those places that I've not yet seen.
KUDOS, to our sponsor, dear Patria, Kikay Gladys and chatty Ox.. The trip was surely a BLAST!!
