ABOUT ME

Hi there. My name name is OLAN. I grew up in the beautiful remote town of Cateel in the Province of Davao Oriental. A coastal town situated at the mouth of the mighty Pacific Ocean so blessed with beautiful places to see.
During my very youth, I learned lounging at the beach, hiking on hills and mountains, trekking the exotic Aliwagwag Falls – highest in the Philippines, wandering in the mossy forests, rowing some boats crossing the clean Cateel River, going to one barrios to another and a lot lot more.

For these reasons, my folks back in my town called me “ALIMPANAW”. A local term referring to a person who never stops at exploring places, going somewhere else and wandering around. Truly, I say I am. A wanderer, an explorer, an adventurer, a voyager, a traveler, an Alimpanaw.

Today, my journey continues. I have been to different places and seen so many amazing places. I have tasted so many different delicacies and witnessed variety of cultures. I have met so many beautiful people of different beautiful stories. I have encountered so many wonderful experiences worthy to cherish and reminisce. And all of them are so worth to share. Great stories that I need to tell.

Now, I am residing in the very beautiful city of Davao. I've lived here for 20 years now since I started studying in college. This is my home now but I still call Cateel my hometown. There are so many stories to tell, so many experiences to inspire. Allow me to do that in my own little way in this blog I call... OLANOLOGY!!! 
YOU ARE MOST WELCOME!

Hi,

I'm thinking of going around Mindanao starting from Lake Sebu towards Cagayan de Oro or the other way around. Thinking of hiring a car with driver who is knows the area so we could stop for the attractions such as Tinuy-an falls, Samal, etc.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :)
