“I think fearless is having fears but jumping anyway.” ~ Taylor Swift
A journey to Camotes island in Cebu dubbed as the lost horizon of the south opens the infinite doors of possibilities of fun, excitement and adventure. Yes, definitely, if Camotes island is beyond the beautiful white beach or the stunning caves it has.
Camotes is also the home of the famous Buho cliff diving. A place created by nature to be an ideal rendezvous to face your fear of heights by jumping through its cliffs and plunging into the crystal blue waters of Camotes.
Behold a beautiful scenery of cliff arousing the azure blue sea decorated with indigenous native cogon cottages on top of the cliff. It offers a panoramic view of the stunning Camotes sea.
But for adventure junkies it’s a haven for unending fun jumping off the cliff. Seeing the glistening sea at 10 ft above sea level is a picture of perfect place to drop and at the same time a nerve-wrecking one.
My daring 10 seconds at Buho rock
Facing one’s fear is never easy. It takes a lot of courage. I fear heights, I am not brave but I have the courage. Being above the sea and was trap in that platform seeing the sea below was so scary. Butterflies had quickly filled my stomach.
But I reminded myself that I came to Buho to prove to myself something, I don’t exactly know what until I have jumped off to that infamous cliff and a realization came “Adventure is the best way to learn more of yourself.” Yes, things happen in just a wink of an eye yet the impact it has done to me was my defining moment. My daring 10 seconds of my life at some point!
