On Sunday, July 3, he took to social media to share that he passed his advanced scuba diving course.

Roxas shared on his official Facebook page several underwater photos taken during a trip at a popular diving spot in Anilao, Batangas with his wife, broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez.

He wrote: “Happy to announce that I’m now certified as an advanced diver! And since it’s a Sunday, fish be with you.”

Sanchez, also a diving enthusiast, is one proud wife as she congratulated her 59-year-old husband on his latest achievement.

On her Instagram account, she shared a photo of Roxas with the caption: “Congratulations to my honey (napaka pogi naman) for completing his Advanced Diving course today!”

Aside from diving, the couple’s other favorite outdoor activity to enjoy quality time together is camping.

In fact, they celebrated Roxas’ birthday last May 13 by going on a camping trip in Baguio City together with Roxas’ son Paolo.

Last month, the defeated Liberal Party standard-bearer embarked on a ‘thank you’ tour to personally extend his gratitude to the people who supported and trusted him.

According to an article published by Philippine Daily Inquirer, Roxas wrote in one of his blog posts:“Why am I doing this? Well, first of all, gusto ko talaga magpasalamat sa lahat ng nagtiwala sa akin (I want to thank those who trusted me). Secondly, I’m exploring options as a travel blogger, haha. Nu’ng kampanya, siksik at mabilisan ang schedule namin (During the campaign period, my schedule was packed). Ngayon nae-enjoy ko na ang mga tanawin (Now, I get to enjoy the sceneries).”
