Surigao Escapade – Prologue

The past 2 months, my sister Daisy and I have been planning a trip online. She’s based in Tokyo with her family and will only be visiting Davao for a total of 3 weeks. So we wanted everything prepared before her arrival so as not to waste time. 🙂

The Plan:

Roadtrip to Surigao and back for 5 days.

Sounded easy right? Lol, that is an understatement considering that I had a terrible time looking for places to stay.

Not many resorts or hotels for that matter, outside Davao City, have a website. So we had to read every blog we can that talked about Surigao. I had so many questions and no one could answer them. There were 16 of us, (3 senior citizens, 🙂 my 2 sisters and family with a total of 5 kids, John and I plus drivers and helpers. ) That  was why I needed details. We just can’t arrive in a place without any booking at all or we would end up sleeping  in the 2 vans we brought for this trip. 🙂

So in the next few days, I will be writing about our trip to give my readers a glimpse of what to expect , etc. Hopefully, it will help your trip as well. Specially those who travel with kids.
