I had been planning and pushing this weekend escape for God knows how long! Me and my friends’ schedules don’t permit and that is why it took us another year (2017) to finally drive to the South and explore some of Laguna’s hidden gems. It was very timely, actually, because I got very exhausted at work and I went gaga the week before this, which made me look forward to the weekend and got very excited to go out and have a breath of fresh air.
Baguio is a thing for me since 2015. I need to make sure that despite the hectic schedule at work, food adventures, planned and spontaneous excursions, I will be able to squeeze Baguio in to my calendar and planner.
Before 2016 ended, me and my friends were planning to start 2017 with an outdoor activity. There were a few in mind but we ended up choosing a hike to Mt. Balagbag. It didn’t take us too long to decide when since it materialized as soon as the second Sunday of January. Very quick, right?
Nacpan beach was part of my El Nido itinerary. I’ve read amazing reviews from different blogs and saw jaw-dropping beautiful and stunning photos of this unspoiled beach. It was even tagged as ‘The World’s Most Beautiful Beach.’ With that, I made sure that we will be able to maximize our 5-day trip to El Nido, Palawan by capping it off with a side trip to Nacpan beach.
The Philippines is composed of 7, 107 islands. But as of the latest count, there are actually 7, 641. That is 534 islands more than what was previously known and to be clear, these ‘new’ islands were not on the map before. And luckily, we are blessed with countless beautiful islands such as El Nido, Palawan.
