Last full day in Cebu! We travelled early from Moalboal to Oslob as we were aiming to catch the earliest trip for the whale shark encounter to avoid the crowd. The travel to Moalboal to Oslob took more than two hours, and it has one transfer. From Moalboal, board a Ceres bus towards Bato, and then alight at the last stop, which is the bus terminal. Then, from the terminal, board another Ceres bus going towards Cebu City, and alight at Brgy. Tan-awan.
Anyway, our travel was a total failure, and our efforts to reach Oslob early all went down the drain because we missed our stop. Not our fault, though; we asked the bus conductor to let us know if it’s time to get off of the bus, and specifically told him that we need to go to the place where the whale shark encounter takes place. I’m pretty sure he understood because he told us, “it is a famous part of the town, and many people visit it”. When we started to feel that the travel is getting longer than expected, we asked the bus conductor if we are almost there; he insisted that it’s a few kilometres more. And then, some minutes later, a ticket inspector boarded the bus, so we took the chance to ask him as we are really getting suspicious because we’ve been travelling for more than an hour already. To our dismay, he told us that we have travelled past the place already. It greatly ruined our schedule as we reached the place around 10am — two hours late of what we planned.
Okay, sorry for the rant. What happened is still very fresh in my memories. Haha.
Moving on, the homestay that we have booked is just along the highway, and it is a walking distance from the beach where the whale shark encounter takes place. We hurriedly checked in and ate brunch which was prepared by our host. By the way, the whale shark encounter is only until 12 noon.
Eating brunch with our housemates!
