It all started with a Marketmanila blog post. I really look up to the man and one day he posted a picture of himself a la James Bond in a beach with the clearest waters and fine white sand. I told myself, “I’m going to that place too.” And made a mental note of the place’s name, CORON, PALAWAN.
I love travelling but of course in real life it’s not very easy to do. I mean it’s not easy to just pack up and leave. First, it’s not cheap even if you choose the most basic options if there’s a number of you in the group and with the hectic-ness of the world today who can go? We did.
It didn’t hurt that I found some nicely priced airline tickets.
Flight was delayed for a few hours but that didn’t reduce our excitement!
Touch down in Busuanga Airport! We arrived at 5pm and started our tour the next day.
The knowledgeable tour guide Anthony if I still remember his name right.
My sleepy daughter.
If these photos didn’t make you want to go there then I don’t know what will.
Just after I booked the tickets I immediately ordered long sleeved rash guard for the family especially for Joleigh, and aqua shoes.
There’s just one thing I didn’t like very much, it’s the sun that’s shining like it’s really mad at us! It really hurt our skin and roasted it in minutes.
So we “swam” on the side of the boat. We don’t know how to swim and my Mom and Aunt are really scared about drowning and getting washed away from the shore. They’re always paranoid haha.
Floating. Big accomplishment for them.
She loves the water. Or she just doesn’t know the concept of danger yet.
Joleigh with Lola Precy or Lola P.
She’s already sleepy on the way to the next destination hence the face. To be honest I don’t remember which island is which.
I loved snorkeling! But I didn’t like that it’s rented. (I bought my own now.)
I brought a waterproof camera.
Blue green clear waters. This is the clearest waters I have seen. On the way to the next destination.
Food for lunch.
Set up for lunch on the island.
All the time that I was looking at the clear waters I was thinking about the freshest fish and other seafood we could eat!
Took a lot of prodding to get her to get to the water. Even with the life vest my mother still thinks she’ll drown. Can’t blame her though, I still get scared myself.
I love this place!
Tried fishing with my mini fishing rod and reel. My first ever catch!
We were too tired and hungry. Here we were waiting for our food.
Tired and hungry but happy!
P.S. We’re going back to Coron in a few months!
