The Travelife team spends a weekend at the Amorita Resort in Bohol, and tries the Bike Zipline at the Chocolate Hills Adventure Park in Carmen



Two weekends ago, I was on my way back from Paris to Asia via Doha.

Meanwhile, a Travelife team consisting of Travelife general manager Gel Bayona, Travelife creative director Bryan Arevalo, and Travelife editorial assistant Jean Mangonon flew to Bohol to stay at the Amorita Resort and to explore this destination further for the magazine.

TRAVELIFE WITH US

MOROCCO






EVERYONE IN TRAVELIFE MAGAZINE
REALLY GETS TO LIVE A TRAVELIFE

It was also this same weekend that Travelife TV creative director Carlo Velasco was in Cebu for a series of meetings.

Meanwhile, Travelife executive assistant Raina Maala flew to Bangkok to represent Travelife Magazine in an international tourism meeting.

I asked her a few days ago which restaurant she enjoyed the most in Bangkok, while on her business trip for Travelife to Thailand, and she told me she liked the Blue Elephant in Bangkok.

More on these trips in later blog entries.

UPDATE FROM BOHOL



In the meantime, Gel Bayona sent in this report from Bohol:

"The Travelife Magazine team had a wonderful weekend in Bohol, living a Travelife, in spite of the rather cloudy weather.

On our second day there, we were welcomed by gloomy skies which forced us to cancel our island hopping tour and dolphin watching excursion. 

A GREAT MEAL 
MADE UP FOR THE WEATHER



Nevertheless we still enjoyed a great Boholano brunch prepared by the Amorita’s very own chef Raphael Ongchiong. 

And here's a trivia about Bohol food, by the way: a typical Boholano meal consists of lemongrass, ginger, or coconut.

THE NEWEST ZIPLINE ATTRACTION
IN THE PHILIPPINES

After a heavy meal, the Travelife team headed to the Chocolate Hills Adventure Park in Carmen, an hour ride from Amorita Resort, to try out the latest attraction.

This new attraction is called (The Rush) Bike Zipline, and it's the first of its kind in the Philippines.



A BIKE ON A ZIPLINE
IS ONE OF BOHOL'S MOST POPULAR ATTRACTIONS

Crossing from one hill to another, the 275-meter zip line bike ride activity is one of the most popular things to do in Bohol.

However, you have to first climb to the 248-step viewing deck to get on your bike -- so that's a lot of exercise, even from the beginning.



We all put on a brave face and undertook the thrilling ride while being slightly swayed by the wind.

There were also other outdoor activities including a canopy walk, hiking trails, rope courses, and chicken and fish feeding.



LAST SWIM IN THE INFINITY POOL

The following day, we all woke up to much warmer weather with the sun even peeking through the clouds. 

But winds were still present, making the waves at the beach pretty rough.

Nevertheless, we strolled around the beach and swam in the Amorita Resort’s infinity pool while waiting for their flight out of Bohol after just another wonderful weekend experience somewhere in the world, living a Travelife."
