Zipling Over Loboc River, The Philippines

While in Bohol last summer we went zip-lining over the Loboc River. It was amazing. It was the kind of zip-lining that the Dauntless do in Divergent, so ya, it was pretty much awesome. And we could totally fit in with the Dauntless. If you're unfamiliar, it's the zip-line style where you lay down so
it seems like you're flying.

We had an easy day planned & heard that the zip lining action was pretty affordable & just down the street from our Inn, so we had the front desk call a tuk-tuk for us. Our tuk-tuk driver was great & told us all about the places we past on the way & even waited for us while we zipped. <Zipped. The new verb pertaining to zip lining. The above was our view,  heading down the road towards our zipping adventure, in case you were curious about our view. ;)

Here we are, on the tuk-tuk! Throwin' up the Asian Deuce. You know how we do.
DSC04466When we got there, we were blown away by the gorgeous views. You guys, these pictures are completely unedited. Not that I ever really edit my pictures anyway (I know, I'm a terrible blogger) but even if I wanted to, I wouldn't have to, because the view was just THAT beautiful & flawless.

There were two choices, to either take a sky lift up & zip line down or to walk up & zip down. We decided to just walk up & zip fly our way down as it was cheaper & we're more for the action & exercise. We made our way up & waited our turn.

The entire group in front of us were Korean so we loved connecting with them over our time in Korea. We also loved hearing their wimpering as they were loaded into their harnesses. Pshhh. Probably Candor or Abnegation. (Okay, for real though, I was starting to freak out a bit the closer it got to our turn & their girl wimpers were what I was feeling inside. I even made Zachary check that all my harnesses were hooked when it was my turn. Better safe than sorry, right?!) DSC04465
These girls were awesome, though. The one on the edge did the superman pose, like so, almost the whole way. So did Zachary, which was precious. DSC04470
Finally, it was our turn!! Check out our view & ride in the video below. 
                      


If you ever have a chance to travel to Bohol make sure you put zip-lining over the Loboc River on your list of things to do!  post signature

An End of Summer 2015 Update

 

It's been awhile since I posted last. Our lives are crazy right now but here are a few updates as to why we've been so bust & some things that have been happening around here. :) 

I got a new domain name for The Mosbys in China AND switched to Word press. I'm still working out the kinks. Okay, let me rephrase, working out the kinks is on my to-do list. So hopefully the new site will be up & running soon.
 
We signed a lease for an apartment for the next 8 months. In America. It has a pool & a gym, so that's exciting!

We've discovered that Chara is OBSESSED with swimming.   

My nephew turned 1!  
 
My future sister-in-law graduated from culinary school. 

We found out my mom has pancreatic cancer at the end of May. Many of our days have been filled with stuff to do with that. Right now I am writing this in a chair next to her hospital bed. 

My papa passed away. The same day we found out my mom had a mass on her pancreas. June was a blur. 

We got jobs. I work for Stitch Fix! He works security.  

We aren't sure what our lives are right now.  We are taking it day. by. day. > The Step by Step theme song just popped into my head. Remember that show?!

My camera broke a few months ago so all the photos of our day to day life & events are being taken with my I-phone, which equals few photos & mostly blurry ones.

I went to an amazing blogging conference. I met some incredible women & drew closer to the Lord. It was such a good weekend. I can't wait to share more about it with you.

I'm really in to listening to podcasts these days. Podcasts you guys, they're awesome.
We just had amazing, China friend reunion last weekend. It was refreshing to our souls! 
 
That's all for now. I'm itching to blog lately.  I'm really hoping I can start setting aside time to but I'm also trying to have a lot of grace with my self lately. So we'll see.post signature

Ya'll, I've Been Rocking Instagram Lately

 
"Ohhh. Ahhh. A beautiful Instagram collage. So fancy.  I'm definitely going to follow that blog."
Ya'll I know I said all that stuff about Instagram last week, but sometimes I just rock it like all the pros do. I mean, check out the post above. I know there's no hand in there, but the feet make up for it. Catch that nice lighting? Cool/edgy decor? Check. Polished nails? Check. No people around destroying my view? Check. Let's continue.
 Oh look. Beautiful people? Check. Phone in the sunglass reflection? Check. Coordinating looking humans? Check. Nailed it.
Super trendy looking restaurant? Check. Palm trees involved? Check.
 
Amazing look food? Check. Even better & trendier, brunch? Check!
 But just wait. Right when you think, man she is nailing it, I throw in one of these, a super blurry photos. You know, just to make sure everyone still knows I'm human. But honestly you guys, the above photo is pretty much an indicator of the rest of my Instagram.
 Like the above, where I was advertising my post about our time at the Jimmy Kimmel Show. That's the photo I included. I mean. Really. Come on. Don't you just want to click on that link? Look how good Jimmy looks!
Oh! And then there was that one time, I just used the really nice photos that were preloaded on my Chinese phone. One of our friends in China said, "Weird. I think I have that same picture on my phone." Jerk. J/k Daniel. J/k. I didn't really think anything of it. I wasn't trying to pass them on my own, I was just trying to post beautiful pictures. But then, someone commented "Awesome photo!" And I thought, "shoot! I think she thinks that I took that. That's sort of deceptive." So I never used those photos again. Well, only a few more times. 
The "Awesome photo!" photo.
 
Also, remember how I said I never figured out that you could save a picture off your blog, on to your phone & then post it? Well, before I figured that out, this was my solution to advertising this post. I took a picture of my computer screen with my phone. But you know, the square box served some issues with the rectangle screen I have on my computer. Also, the box is kind of small, so that was the best I could do to fit it all in. Nice, right? It's amazing I don't have more followers.

And, with all that goodness, you know you'll really be getting good quality photos & pretty things to look at when you follow @TheMosbys13 on Instagram. Follow me ya'll!
