Photo of the Day: Firedancing in Misibis Bay

Play with fire, the time-tested aphorism goes, and you’ll get burned. Holds true in life and relationships. Holds equally true with actual fire, but sometimes, just sometimes, some people train hard enough to master the fire dragon and play with it. And, boy, when they get the hang of it, they make it look so easy. This is why we have so much respect for fire dancers, this one captured in Misibis Bay (Bacacay, Albay) by Nix Gonzales (check and follow her Instagram account, @nix.gonzales). It’s a stunning sight to behold even if you’ve already seen it a million times. Tweak a little component of the experience, like the music or the beach on where it is performed, and you get an entirely different awesome show. Add good photography into the mix, just like what @nix.gonzales) accomplished in this shot, and you’ll have a memory that will last you through thick and thin. Firedancing also happens to be a source of living, like how we all earn from our work or professions, so next time you see a fire dancer do his/her stuff, give a generous tip. Click the photo to enlarge: Continue reading Photo of the Day: Firedancing in Misibis Bay

This resort paradise, after all, basks in the shadow of the world’s most perfect cone volcano, Mt. Mayon, spewing lava in the past days, prompting the local government to evacuate residents in the volcano’s permanent danger zone. Of course, we very well know that travel does not come without risks — after seriously considering the cards dealt on us, we came to a doubt-free conclusion that Misibis Bay must be explored and, with the decision to make the trip more adventurous with a long drive, it turned out to be an experience of Misibis Bay by day and night.
