Fearless in Batanes (Day 2)

Did you know that Batanes has 4 seasons? Yes! So good to feel the fresh spring air. Tirik ang araw but the wind will blow you away. Literally haha!

Sunday was spent touring South of Batan Island…
Kudos to our tour guide…Ate Remy of Novita House. Grabe! She’s in her 50’s na but we (well the girls, i mean) were challenged by her trekking capabilities talaga. Levelling to the highest level. I almost had a heart attack watching her, my hubby and a guy friend rock climbed and trekked on a rocky cliff alongside raging waters of the Pacific. The guys told us…if she could do it then its just easy peasy. Good thing the girls were distracted by the breathtaking view. She always ask us first though, if we want to go all the way up, down, trek, go inside the cave, swim, etc. She goes above and beyond our expectations. Of course, we’re always game to go wherever she takes us. We are up for the challenge!

Fearless in Batanes (Day 1)

 

Inspite of the tsunami scare in the waters of the Philippines facing the Pacific, our group of 6 pushed thru with our trip to Batanes. Nobody wants to back out! It was a relief though that the tsunami alert level was cancelled around 11pm the night before our trip.

It was a very early flight. We all lack sleep tuning in on the news. Yes eyebags galore! It helps to know that as the sun shines we will see the beauty that is Batanes. Everything is just picturesque. Everywhere we go, we’re like oooh, aaah, wow! However, with my tons of photos (I’ve got a LOT to show you!) it seems I can’t capture its true beauty. Its just so easy to take great pictures with breathtaking backdrops. At the end each day, our cameras gets reunited with their chargers, dead batt and all.
