Davao Vacation 2018

When in Davao, make sure to visit Eden Nature Park and enjoy the rides. Sadly though, for us, we were quite late in getting into the place because of some unavoidable circumstances we met along the way. We thought we would arrived Eden after lunch but our car had some trouble that we went to see a car shop first and had the battery replaced.

Since we were not from Davao, we relied mostly on Gps or Waze. We arrived mostly to our destinations but on that day when we decided to go to Eden, that was when the problem came. We tried to use a shorter route as instructed by Ms. “Jane” of Waze. But halfway on our travel, we realized that the road ahead of us was very rocky. We only used our Toyota Vios and one passersby advised us not to use that route coz it will damage our car 🙁

We went back our way. Better safe than sorry. We decided to use the longer but safer route but we arrived quite late. We were not able to catch up the tour bus so we had to explore the place by ourselves. We just made sure to visit the Flower Garden, the ‘Rainbow’ garden and also the Fish pond.

But before we explored the garden area, my husband and daughter checked out the rides first. They tried Skyriding and enjoyed the fun. It was my husband’s birthday on that day that’s why he was quite hesitant to go for another ride. He said he would try others in another visit. Hmmm…

I didn’t try any rides coz we really lacked time. After snacks, I insisted that we go see the garden area before it gets dark. Everything was done in a rush. We took some pics of the areas nearby but we were not able to go further as it was raining also…sigh 🙁

Despite that, I was happy to see the place. Everyone decided that should we go to Davao next time, our first stop should be Eden and spend the rest of the day enjoying all the rides. We were still glad to go there and did a little fun. I guess the only one who wasn’t that happy was my little girl coz she was not able to take her much needed nap.

Davao City

Davao City is one of the places I’d like to see again. In my other entry, I’ve mentioned that my family spent Christmas in Davao 2 years in a row (when I was still single). There were so many things that you can see in Davao but we haven’t got the chance to see all of them because of a very limited time.

My next visit with the family was on a Holy Week. That was the time my dad was seriously ill. We traveled to Davao from Cagayan de Oro to fetch him. That was a sad experience but let me just dwell on the good times. Pictures below were taken at Zugba. I don’t know if this resto is still there but all I can say is that their food was superb! I could still remember the yummiest prawns served to us. My next visit to Davao was with my hubby and the last one was with my classmates from nursing school.

Seagull Mountain Resort

For 2 years in a row, we spent our Christmas vacation in Davao City when my father was still alive. He was assigned to work there and instead of going home, he asked us to go there to spend Christmas with him. And when it was time for us to go home to Cagayan de Oro, he came with us to spend New Year’s day. But along the way, we stopped by one scenic place between Bukidnon and Davao. The restaurant and the view was a sight to behold. It’s called Seagull Mountain Resort. This place looks different now when I browsed at my laptop but it was still beautiful. We stopped by in here to take a short break and to eat at their resto. I’m not so sure if I want to come back to this beautiful place again for it will just remind me of my dad and of how much I missed him…
