Beaches as you can see, is one of my favorite destinations. As a kid, my mom used to take us to places we never knew, mostly what they call the virgin beaches. I wish digital cameras were a big hit back then, but no so I learned to stock them up on my head as mental images.
When I started out traveling on my own or with friends after college, I promised myself I would take as much photos as I can. My head is already full of so many things I can’t keep track of the others, lol! 🙂 Anyway, allow me to share with you the beautiful island I have met late 2009. This small but VERY beautiful place is in Candelaria Zambales City Philippines namely POTIPOT Island.
My first trip was very unforgettable, we took the Victory Liner Bus Station at 7:30 am and arrived at the place by 2:30 pm. That was 7 hours long but it was worth the trip (it just took that long because of too many stop overs). We stayed at Sunbloom Resort and was assisted by Ate Mercy who also cooked for us, so nice of her. You actually have two choices, you can stay at nearby resorts or sleep at Potipot, but we chose the first one.
The next day, we were ready to discover Potipot Island. From our resort, it only took around less than 10 minutes to reach the said island. The first time I set foot and the first time my toes felt the water, I knew fun had started.
This old tree at the back of the island was love!
So I climbed… 🙂
Race anyone? One of my epic shots!
Tanned up and loving it! ♥
After 5 months, I was back at the same place, this time with some great friends. Less hassle for the travel since two of them decided to drive. We laughed, ate and chatted all the way from Manila to Zambales. We joked around, talked about “Pilapils” and got even caught up by the police at Clark. Oh memories! I just love the good old times!
Bench and I.
All tanned up!
I guess the photos above sums up my short travel story. As usual, I had a hard time thinking what photos to include since I am the type of person who wants to capture them all thinking, I will be able to use ‘this’ in the future. Truly I did, it has been 4 years and I what is great with having a personal blog is you can still write things up even if it’s about past travels and the like.
It’s the month of January, summer is around the corner and personally, I am looking forward for my first travel for year 2013. So excited, hope all the plans will be successful! Missing my sun kissed tan! ♥
