Batanes gave me nothing but pure bliss. I was uninterrupted. Life felt very easy. I never looked forward to anything at the end of the day, except for sumptuous dinner. And I lived each moment like life was perfect. I guess this is the effect of being exposed into something very beautiful, that it becomes so overwhelming and you can’t even put it into writing because no words can give justice to what it is.
South Batan was the last destination we planned to visit in our 5-day escape in Batanes. It was heartbreaking, but it’s the kind of heartbreak I’m willing to endure. I can’t say it’s my favourite out of all the places we had seen because each spot carries its own unique beauty. What sets it apart from others? I honestly do not know. I was having way too fun that I didn’t even care about anything at all. I guess that’s what really happens to people who are in a temporary social media hiatus. 😀
One of the things I love about Batanes is that you don’t need to bother making a detailed itinerary. You just need to look for someone who can take you to wonders to behold. You can tackle the road of South Batan by the coast and it’s just so liberating being there and seeing no other vehicle than the one you’re riding in, hear the sound of the struggling engine fighting the usual gusting winds of the island, and watch as you leave and say goodbye to every spot you wish to have stayed longer. Why am I being poetic?! LOL. 😀
These photos are meant to entice more people to check what’s out there waiting for them to see. The most damage will come from the airfare, but Batanes is worth it. Traveling doesn’t come cheap, but what you can do is go somewhere you know you will get your money’s worth. Believe people when they say — BATANES IS THE DREAM! I just hope you do proper planning and go there during the sunny season. 🙂
