The Gentle Giants of Oslob

Another item ticked off my bucket list!
It was such an amazing experience! It is not everyday that you encounter big fish like this. And by big, I mean really big!  10-12 feet, I think.
I can still remember the thrill before plunging into the clear blue waters of Oslob. Adrenaline rushed in and I loved it. I guess I thrived with these hormones. I love the feeling of pressure and accepting every challenge it gives.

On short notice, we had barely a week to prepare. I asked my friends and officemate if there is a chance to spend the weekend in La Union for an adventure. I wanted to be abrupt as possible because I want to get confirmation right away. Just Yes or No and nothing in between. So six brave souls initially got off from Manila around midnight to La Union. We rode in Partas Bus terminal Partas Busand for 6 hours, we reached Sebay in Urbiztondo, San Juan, La Union. We maximized our travel time sleeping because we knew we needed energy for our first trip; trekking and swimming in Tangadan Falls in San Gabriel.
