Islas de Gigantes Day 2

Naturally, we went island hopping and did some swimming on day two. Although the accommodations were humble at best, I very much enjoyed my stay here. The white sand beach was pristine! The place was very peaceful and private since there weren't a lot of people. In fact, we were the only group (well, aside from the locals) staying in the island when we visited!

Islas de Gigantes Day 1

A blog post about a trip taken nine months back? Yep! Lol. 

So anyway, I went with a few friends to Islas de Gigantes (or Gigantes Islands), a group of islands located at the northeastern part of Iloilo. To get there, we took a flight headed to Roxas City, stayed there overnight, then took a car ride and a boat ride on the following day. Travel time is much shorter as compared to flying from Manila to Iloilo City.

Ryan in Albay!

How's everyone doing lately?

If you guys don't know yet, I moved back to my hometown, Legazpi, seven months ago. This place is definitely much more peaceful and relaxed, still, I can't help but miss the craziness of Manila -- the crowded malls, the horrendous traffic, the noise, the feeling that so many things are happening all at the same time. So far, I've been flying to Manila once or twice a month.

Anyway, right after I made the big move, Ryan said he would visit me, and we decided that May would be a good time. He brought me to his hometown, Tabaco, which was around 45 minutes away from mine, and took a good look around. He brought me to Cafe Molave, a quaint restaurant in the middle of the city, and to Ishi-aya, a Japanese restaurant he kept on telling me about since last year. We went to Mayon Rest House, located in Mayon Volcano itself, although the view wasn't as nice because it was too close to the top (lol!). I also brought him to some places in Legazpi. On his last day, we went to Donsol and swam with the whale sharks. This wasn't the first time I've seen these huge creatures but it was my first time to swim with them! Seeing them up close was amazing-- no words to describe it!

It's the 4th of July, which means...... it's my birthday! Time flew by so fast, I can't believe I'm turning 25 today! Here are some shots taken by Ben (check out his website and instagram) several months back. Click the button below to see the rest of the photos!

Anilao 2017

When asked about my ideal getaway, only one place comes to mind-- the beach! Nothing really beats relaxing under the sun and staring into the horizon while listening to the sound of the waves crashing against the shore with a glass of ice cold drink in hand. I feel so excited just by thinking about it! Lol.

Last May, I went to Anilao with a couple of friends and stayed there for one night. We didn't get to do a lot of stuff because an overnight stay wasn't enough! We did some snorkeling though (one thing you shouldn't miss when you're in Anilao!), played beach volleyball, and took advantage of the unlimited use of kayaks at the resort (we stayed at Anilao Awari Bay). Aaand this place will forever hold a special place in my heart because this is where I first learned how to swim and be comfortable in a 15ft pool! (I just recently started learning how to swim lol.)

Summer Air

Summer is no doubt my favorite part of the year and although the heat is sometimes unbearable, I still enjoy every minute of it! Here I am wearing a flowy jumpsuit from Miss Selfridge on a hot, sunny day in Manila.

The Farm at San Benito

First off, The Farm at San Benito is huge! In fact, it will take you a while to go around the entire place. And what's even better is that there aren't a lot of guests staying at the resort. I can actually count with my fingers the number of guests we saw during our entire stay! 

Read on to find out what you can expect at The Farm at San Benito. :)

The Farm at San Benito: Pools!

Of course, a relaxing getaway wouldn't be complete without a refreshing swim! The Farm actually has quite a number of pools-- the South Pool, the infinity pool by the spa, and the man-made waterfalls. And don't forget the private heated pools if you book the Narra Villas!

The best part of our stay here was there weren't a lot of people. We rarely saw other guests-- it felt like we had the entire place all to ourselves!
