CEBU WAS A LAST-MINUTE TRAVEL DECISION for my friend and me — it came about thanks to a cheap flight and proximity to South Korea, where I’m currently living. Many people I knew who’d been said there wasn’t much to see besides the beach. I’m glad I didn’t listen.
We were only there for less than a week but got around — we walked Cebu City, traveled around the island, and took a day trip to neighboring Bohol to see the Chocolate Hills. What I tried to capture in my photos were the in-between, ordinary moments of traveling in Cebu. As a temporary visitor, I was most fascinated by these glimpses into the everyday lives of Cebuanos.
