I’m still recovering from the sleepless nights I had since Wednesday and I can’t believe that I had to go through all of that without even absorbing prior that I would! #lolwhut Anyway, I’m just glad that it’s all done and that it’s Saturday and I can blog again!
Speaking of which, last week was fun because I got reunited with the people who made college the best part of my life, in one of the most beautiful and serene beaches I’ve been to — Burot Beach! This is an achievement for me because I crafted the trip together with Naz (usually I just confirm and bring myself haha, and yay to my pledge to make my travel goals happen). This trip also slashed out my goal of surprising Ian on his birthday, so double yay! The preparations were more thorough because Burot is a remote beach in Calatagan, and there were no hotels for accommodation. We had to set up a camp!
We brought a tent and food to grill, because there are no restaurants as well!
We had lunch first, and I felt like we were in the Fast and the Furious! Haha! I cut the meat into pieces because that’s all I can contribute, aside from setting up our dining table. You see, I’m very domesticated!
We decided to go boating (I wouldn’t really call it island hopping because we were already in the island) which costed us just 150 bucks per person, inclusive of life vest and goggles! Our first stop was the sand bar, and it was where my jaw dropped.
It was so calm, and there were no waves at all! We literally walked in the middle of sea!
We enjoyed every bit of the experience and we were so in love with the view!
Our next stop was the starfish village. I’m not sure if that name is legit but even if it’s not, I’d still probably call it that. There were too many starfishes, it was like taking them out from a cabinet!
I was hesitant to touch them at first because even if they look adorable, realizing that they are breathing kind of freaked me out. My mind couldn’t ignore the idea of their tentacles suddenly moving!
It was at the third stop where we did the real swimming! This is crazy but it was my first time to snorkel! Haha! I was so amazed at how beautiful the coral reefs were, but was still so afraid with the sea though, because my feet could no longer touch the sea bed. I held on to Ian and Naz the whole time.
We took a rest when we get back from the boat ride. I watched the sunset of course, and jammed with Jessie while everyone’s asleep. I missed singing!
It was a quick getaway but it’s probably one of my favorites because the experience was different: we did camping which was my first time, and of course because I was with the best group of people ever. Several years have passed, and I’ve met a lot of new ones already but I can truly say that nothing compares to this bunch. We may not be complete and sure we miss everyone else but the world is pretty small and I know we will be reunited soon!
