Chasing Waterfalls: Iligan Photo Blog

Okay, this blog post has been overdue for way too long.

This blog post will be a rundown of all the Samal beach resorts and tourist spots Kaye and I have visited in the last 5 years and will be accordingly updated. So, to quote the Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar: “Let’s do this?!?!”.
