A dear friend of mine Kyle Jennermann who has been spreading the good news and the good vibes about Cagayan de Oro and Northern Mindanao that has reached as far as Yahoo, ABS-CBN, and The Filipino Channel has published his first blog entry entitled “Four Reasons You Have To Come to Northern Mindanao, Region 10.”
I could not help but be inspired upon reading his blog (read it HERE). My spines shivered with his words like “But… If you are a foreigner and you come to Northern Mindanao be prepared to get overwhelmed with hospitality! The fact of the matter is… very few young foreigners come travel here! IT IS SHOCKING! Because of this locals are going to LOVE YOU!”
It is overwhelmingly nice when foreigners like Kyle took the courage to explore our place that has long been a victim of negative media hypes. He has proven that Cagayan de Oro and Northern Mindanao are not just beautiful tourist attractions worth exploring for. Kyle has made it clear that our place is fun and LIVABLE.
