Mindanao is one of the three island in the Philippines and is the second largest of the three. It is covered by 6 administrative regions (Region IX-Zamboanga Peninsula, Region X- Northern Mindanao, Region XI-Davao Region, Region XII - SOCCSKSARGEN, Region XIII-CARAGA, and ARMM), 22 provinces, 33 cities.
I've been in Davao several times since 2011. I have climbed Mt. Apo, the tallest mountain here in the Philippines in 2012 and 2014. Last year together with my fellow climber, we have climbed Mt. Kitanlad and Dulang-dulang prior to our Mt. Apo Climb. It was a success indeed and a great opportunities for us to explore Davao and Bukidnon on a road trip. Then I planned to have a great Mindanao adventure that will extend from Zamboanga to Butuan, a road trip that will cover 847km long road travelling. As soon as there's a promo fare going to Zamboanga I grabbed it.
Last June 1, 2015 together with Ma'am Precy (my co- faculty back in Perpetual) and Mr. Bhrama we landed at the first leg of our Mindanao adventure, in Zamboanga.
