Lake Alapasco

If you are a follower of my blog, you know that I post my travels. I just don’t know why the heck did I forget to post my Alapasco escapade with my classmates last April 7-8, 2016.

Lake Alapasco is situated in Batad, Iloilo. Technically it is a dam, and I don’t know why people call it Lake. But since people are calling it that way, let me borrow it and use it in this post.

Batad is in the Northern part of Iloilo. It is a 3-hour travel from Ceres terminal in Buhang. We departed the city at around 3:00 in the morning.

We at the Ceres Terminal, ready to go!

We arrived in Batad at around 6 o’clock in the morning. Since Allyn already arranged the travel from Batad Plaza, we were picked up by a vehicle owned by someone she knew and was brought to the lake.

Waiting for our ride!
Here it is!

When we arrived, we set up our tent and took a lot of pictures. A lot of them! The place was beautiful and beautiful is an understatement.

The arrival
Setting up of The Capitol!
The view!
And there’s me!

Since there is an ongoing El Nino, the heat was unbearable at around 10 AM to 4PM. My classmates started preparing for our food and the caretaker of the place offered us to stay in one of the floating cottages that they are developing. We talked and had so much fun. We stayed there until the heat becomes bearable.

Don’t forget the basics: Coffee!
Classmates preparing our lunch!

At night, we had our own bonfire and talked about anything there is. When the light is out, we proceeded to the biggest tent (which we called The Capitol) and played spin the bottle.

This is us! I love us!
And then there’s me passing s’mores to Marife

Don’t worry guys, your secrets are safe with me. I learned a lot from my classmates and I started to appreciate some of them. You know I have never been expressive about my feelings to new people in my life, but I have been thankful to every moment I had with my classmates. I may be a bitch at times, but it doesn’t mean that I do not care. You just have to look beyond it.

Happy Campers! #3Ascapades
Bye Alapasco!

At the end of the day, I have to say that I have been blessed to have that trip and to be with awesome people. I hope there’s more to come. ❤

      Yeah, solo backpacking is really sad and I don’t think you’d enjoy your stay in Alapasco if you are alone. But you can join travel/outdoor groups, there’s a lot of it that welcome freelance travelers. BTW, thank you for dropping by. I will read your blog:)
