Samal Island Walking

I’ve been thinking of going for a really long walk somewhere far from my usual running route and preferably where I won’t get to see a lot of cars. The only place I could think of that seems to fit what I have in mind is Samal Island, which is only a few minutes away by motorboat from Davao’s Sasa Km 11 wharf. So along with two friends from my previous work, I started my Saturday right by going for a long early morning pleasant walk in the quiet roads of the Island Garden City of Samal.

The road ahead. With no map and sense of direction, we just decided to go straight and let our feet take us wherever we end up to be.

The heavy rains the night before made the unpaved part of the road squishy and muddy for most parts.
