Long and winding road. The road to Danao made me think of a milder version of the zigzag road to Baguio City. Our road trip was occasionally marred by heavy downpours and there was always the threat of dark clouds ahead, ready to spill all the rain they've got. However, we all remained unfazed. Isn't that the essence of going into an adventure?
I thought I was that brave until I saw this.
The view from above.
But I thought, it would be now or never. I thought I shouldn't have bothered waking up early at all for my fast craft trip to Bohol. I shouldn't have bothered running from the Pier 1 to Pier 4 of Cebu City (in a cab of course), to desperately catch the next trip to Bohol after I did not get the chance to become a "chance" passenger at the Ocean Jet Liner. I shouldn't have bothered going through all the ordeals I went through to reach Danao if it would all come to this. I shouldn't have but I did. So I took the plunge.
After the first zipline
Going solo. Lynor and I agreed that we go through the second zipline individually. This second line is shorter but still has the same distance from the river bed (150 meters) to the cable.
Lynor went first...
...then I followed.
Come zipline with me. The Finale. This is exactly what you'll see while ziplining in Danao, Bohol.
Warning: Though the crew has a sphygmomanometer at hand in case the guests want their blood pressures taken before the slide, still this ride is not for the weak at heart. Once you have begun the ride, do NOT ever attempt to close your eyes or else you'll miss a lot. Watch the video that follows, from start to end, then tell me, do you want to give this a try? Would you even bother? Enjoy! Bombs away!
