This is all about the contrast of the big boat and the small boat.
Same boat, but this time with a fisherman and his boat.
I really quite like this “aged” photo. The boat looks so grand. I’m scared of big boats like this at night.
Our first stop. Michael and I were saying that from this angle, you would think you’re in Palawan. But Samal was pretty gorgeous underwater, too. This was my favorite snorkeling spot.
Our boat. It’s called Wave Dancer. Amppp.
And this used to be what?
I kinda like this, too. It was so pretty in that island. And hot.
One of the guys we were with, Sam, caught this sea urchin. Near where I was having the time of my life swimming. I stepped on some coral/rock around the same time and my foot bled like a mofo at night. I am such a moron in water.
This boat’s name is “Maawa Ka” (Have Mercy).
I had the time of my life snorkeling, so I didn’t even bother to touch the kayak. Last year I kayak-ed for an entire freaking day in El Nido.
We passed by this island. It felt more like a town than a resort. What for us was a special day with the seas was just an ordinary day in that beach town.
This dude was with our boatman. He had the most chillax post.
There was this house on top of a freaking hill, showing everyone who’s boss.
I saw lots of boats of this kind, they were pretty fierce! They look like spider boats, as if they’re some HBIC.
Of course: Pearl Farm. I’ve never actually stayed in this place, but I heard from a number of friends that for the amount you pay, you’d expect better service. I get very anal and easily cranky with bad service.
This looks like SO MUCH FUN, but it’s abandoned now.
So that’s it. For someone who does not use Photoshop, I was pleased with my camera. More importantly, though, I was really pleased with my region and my country. It’s beautiful.
