In their exploration, they found the riverside town of Loboc in Bohol as an idyllic place to exercise their passion for sports and adventure, as well as to live with the nature.

The outcome became Fox and the Firefly Cottages (check rates), a quaint inn along the ever-flowing Loboc River. It had stemmed from an idea to set up a cool place where they could operate Stand-Up Paddling (SUP) tours and now it is a favorite destination of backpackers, nature lovers and adventure-seekers.
