Oh, Seychelles! Coming here was definitely a huge tick off the wanderlist and another dream come true. Our first few days in the island of Praslin (If you missed Part 1, click here) couldn't have been a superb intro to an immaculate vacation. I still get high whenever I remember the stunningly palm-fringed beaches and clear, blue waters [...]
Yes, finally, writing about our vacation that happened months ago in the island of *drumrolls* - SEYCHELLES! This country has been on my wanderlist ever since Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton flew there for their honeymoon, because, well, Prince + Duchess + honeymoon - you get it, right? Well, it wasn't until last year when [...]
Good times. I can't think of another word or phrase that would best describe our recent trip to Siargao. It was my second time on the island and in both times, I undeniably fell in love with its laid-back surfer vibe - which is very inviting, thus some expats and local city folks alike chose [...]
Bagasbas beach is now becoming a popular surf spot in Daet, Camarines Norte. It's a good pit stop when you're on your way back to Manila from the pristine Calaguas Island or vice versa. From Paracale, there is a public van that goes to Daet and can take you a little further to Bagasbas for an [...]
Ahhh.. Calaguas. Already more than a month ago and the perpetual summer we had on this wondrous place still lingers in my mind. Its fine, white sand perfectly complements its calm, turquoise water that is so refreshing, we almost never wanted to stay dry. Three days of isolation (no wifi and phone signal) and an unspoilt island [...]
When you find yourself thousand miles away from home on a Thursday, why not throw in a little throwback? Char. Reminiscing those sunkissed days with awesome friends in one of my homeland's pristine, secluded beaches - Coron, Philippines. "Memories last forever, they simply never die. True friends stay together, they never say goodbye."
Not much photos but more than a dozen of unforgettable memories. Surf, sand, oh yes, rain and a bunch of good friends. One of those places that I would definitely go back to over and over - Siargao Island, Philippines. Circa 2011. "The cure for anything is saltwater - sweat, tears or the sea." Isak Dinesen
I think most of us heard about the Hiroshima bomb-equivalent earthquake that hit the Philippines last October 2013. The aftermath was unbearable. I felt sad when I learned that one of the places that were mainly damaged was Bohol. Historical churches crumbled into pieces and friendly Boholanos left terrified were heartbreaking. But, all of us [...]
