Calaguas Calling11:36:00 PM
Hello, everyone! We recently concluded our Calaguas trip and I was blown away. Our country never fails to astound me with its sheer beauty. This is one of the perks of living in the Philippines, you get to see something like this 7 hours from Metro Manila. Calaguas Group of Islands is located in Camarines Norte, Bicol. Its waters are similar to Alaminos, Pangasinan, and the sand is as fine as Boracay's, yet it conducts heat. Calaguas Islands is slightly commodified, but all of the guests sleep in tents or wood cabins, which I think is the best way to preserve the place. And the electric supply shuts down at 12 am, which allowed me to marvel at the stars, something you never get to see clearly in smoggy Manila.
Who did I go with? My sister, her boyfriend, and her friends. The same people I went to Baler with. I was the 13th wheel since everyone on the trip has a partner. I didn't feel the least bit lonely, but it was terribly funny, because I wasn't in the least bothered, especially since it was Valentine weekend. I didn't even know what the itinerary was, so I didn't bring a sleeping bag, a blanket nor a jacket and ended up feeling extremely unprepared because it gets real frigid when you camp at the beach (learned that the hard way now!), especially for I slept alone in a tent good for three people, but I survived! I just cherished my solitude, since the place is so amazing you won't feel lonely. I didn't want to go back, or at least I could have stayed for another week. There will be more photos for the next post, so stay tuned and I hope you can appreciate Calaguas as much as I do, although I strongly recommend that you go and see it for yourself.
And oh, my Firmoo giveaway is still going, only 11 days to go, so join now!
