Birthday Adventure at CDO, Bukidnon, and Iligan - Day 1

Another year has been added to my age. And this time, it's adventurous, more exciting, and more meaningful. Thanks to my dearest honey for making my 28th birthday a very memorable one.

First Stop: Cagayan De Oro

We rode a Cebupac airbus (thanks to piso fare) at 4:15am of July 8, the day of my birthday. We reached Cagayan De Oro at around 5:30am. We went to Divisoria to meet the parents of Mark and also, this is the meeting place of Kagay - the group where we listed for CDO white water rafting. You may refer to this link for more Kagay's information. We had our breakfast at Jollibee Divisoria. Then, we rode Kagay's jeep service to go to our destination.

We first had our stop-over at Macahambus Adventure Park.
You may try their sky bridge, zip line, and rapelling.

They also have souvenirs for sale.
But because we have already plan for Dahilayan adventure the next day, we didn't try these at Macahambus. For other information about Macahambus and their rates please refer to this link.

We reached the white water rafting venue at 11:00am. We prepared first for the adventure.
Got some instructions from our guide. He taught us how to use the paddle, and what we are going to do when we accidentally dropped from the raft.
Mark and I had chose the Basic Rafting only because it's my first time (it's Mark's second time), and I'm afraid because I don't know how to swim, and I'm afraid of deep water.

Then, the adventure begins.
 They also has the Zorb Ball adventure, located at the take-out point of the white water rafting adventure.

After the rafting, Mark and I went to Gaston Park, where you will see most of the couples. :D
 Then, because it's my birthday, we visited St Augustine Cathedral Church and lit a candle to thank God for all the blessings that He has given and will give to us.
 We had our very late lunch at Butcher's Best Barbeque, just few walks away from the Cathedral.
After eating, we went to Mark's home residence at the Apovel Subd to sleep and sleep and sleep, then eat. :)

We didn't try Camiguin this time because we were already been there last year.

That's the end of the first day.
