Surigao City

My hometown Loreto is at the northern tip of Dinagat Island. From Manila, we had to take a domestic flight to Surigao City then another 4 hour boat ride to Loreto cruising along the stretch of Dinagat Island. The weather can be harsh especially in June-July and November-December. Though it was mid November when we got there, the weather was really good except for the heavy rains in the morning. The sea was so calm. It was such a big concern for us because we didnt have time and we cannot afford to be stranded there for days. I know that nasty weather could even run for weeks there, no outbound and inbound trips. Oh no! we could be trapped there.

The Tavern Hotel . We chose this hotel due to its proximity to the city center and to the port where boats enroute to Loreto are docked. The hotel was under renovation. In my book, it is not a high standard neither a fancy hotel but it is reasonable. I would say the food is really good.

I so love this tricycle. The main public transport around the city of Surigao.

good evening dudes. I'm really into shoes and I have been searching for the sake of that particular model. The prices for the sneakers are approximately 320 bucks everwhere. But completely I base this area selling them for the benefit of half price. I really love these [url=]gucci sneakers[/url]. I will probably buy those. what can you say about it?

But definitively I set this location selling them for half price. I really want these [url=]gucci sneakers[/url]. I will absolutely purchase those. what do you think?
