Enchanting Sohoton Cove and Bucas Grande Islands

Sometimes the sky belongs to me
And wraps me in infinity
Sometimes it turns the other way
And hides itself in clouds of gray

After a devastating two days of bumming around, finally we’re off to test the waters of Siargao sans tsunami mishaps.

Waking up in an Island Dream

Misfortune is never mournful to the soul that accepts it;
for such do always see that every cloud is an angel’s face.
~Lydia M. Child

This is a continuation to the epic tsunami scare which spiced up our journey to Southern Philippines.

Contrary to the anticipated sleepless night, I had a good night sleep. A bit weird though for passing out in such a dangerous state. We were already resolved that if it happens to chase us and ruin our perfectly planned holiday, then be it. Although, I still felt relieved to hear the rushing waves off a few feet away from our front porch the next morning.

Around Siargao & Tsunami Scare

The stars shine so bright
Heaven can’t be miles away
For it is right here

-Allisson Liddle

Beyond the roadblocks of delayed flights and bad weather, we were determined to make the most out of our summer plans. Bring it on!

Let our weekend adventure begin. We pulled off a flight marathon to Siargao and finally settled down in a secluded resort along the coastlines of Burgos town.

The Unexpected Hitchhiker

Palm tree’s ocean breeze, lets go crusin you and me
salty air sun kissed hair, endless summer take me there

This is Part 1 of Our Siargao Getaway.

I must have mistaken the early warnings of nature with Cebu Pacific’s lack of competency when my red-eye flight was delayed by 2 hours. The grounds being technical difficulties and bad weather. I have a feeling that this isn’t going to be an easy travel even if I packed light.

Out and About: Summer 2011 at Siargao Island

Summer is kind of like the ultimate one-night stand:
hot as hell, totally thrilling, and gone before you know it.
– Cosmopolitan

The smell of summer comes right out of a fine powdery sands, calling out some wandering feet to hit the beach!

Time to indulge in a sinful summer love affair in a scene of gentle wind blowing kisses against our skin and the majestic blue sea humming soft lullaby all day. Our restless soul surrenders to a one-night only, three nights of thrilling adventures and misadventures.

Weekend at Amphawa Floating Market

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel
is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time,
to be in a position in which almost nothing
is so familiar it is taken for granted.

~ Bill Bryson

A visit to Thailand  isn’t complete without a trip to  a floating market. Escape to an exciting showcase of local custom,  rustic atmosphere and colorful ambiance.

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for
and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

~ Oriah, Mountain Dreamer

I wake up on our 2nd day not feeling well. This is probably the effect of basking out on a hot weather the day before and cooling down at the mall afterwards. Bed rest is so tempting yet I wouldn’t dare missed the fun, so I bid goodbye to our lovely sanctuary and hit the road.

Luxury Bed and Breakfast Holidays

Sometimes backpacking and going on cheap vacation deals can be exhausting. Most often than not, a day in the life of a backpacker involves sharing bathroom with molds and defunct shower and sleeping on budget hostels with bedbugs and stinking smell. Yes, the worst part we can have over a great getaway.
