I love welcoming the sun in the beach. This is taken in Blue Coral Beach Resort in Laiya, San Juan, Batangas using my iPhone 4S.
I love our overnight stay in this resort. And I made sure to wake up early to experience this beautiful sunrise. You know I’m a night owl but I was pretty tired from travelling from Manila then swimming the rest of the afternoon with the family and friends, I pretty much conked out as soon as I hit the bed. I woke up at around 4am and I don’t know what to do and I can’t go back to sleep. So after playing some games and checking my emails, I went out to the beach and wait for the sunrise to welcome me.
It was a spiritual experience. I was very peaceful and wanted to share it with DK so I called him and told him to look at the view in our room. I wish he was actually there with me in the beach but the kiddo was still sleeping in the bed.
It’s a short weekend trip but so worth it. I wish it could have been longer.
My entry for Tuesday Travels are old photographs found in my mailbox.
I love the beach. But I seldom get to visit it. Our visit to La Luz Beach Resort is quite memorable.
For one, it’s the first time I went to the beach without my family.
Two, we planned our vacation before a typhoon. We already made the reservations and we didn’t want to backout and I’m glad we did. It was a fun experience despite the huge waves, gray skies and occasional rain.
Three, I got sick on the first night. And got worse when we were on our way home. It sucks but it’s still fun. I still get to wear my bikini (with shorts) and had fun bonding with friends.
I miss that feeling of chilling out and thinking of nothing else. I miss the sun burning my skin and the sand under my toes. The salty sea water and the strong ocean wind.
I miss the beach. So much.
I love cold places. So it’s pretty obvious that one of my favorite places to go to for some mini-vacation is Tagaytay. It’s a couple of hours travel (or sometimes even less if there’s not much traffic) from Metro Manila. The traveling is convenient even if you’re a commuter because of the daily trips of buses and shuttle vans from Pasay/Paranaque area. Lucky for us, we already have a car of our own and decided to spend the New Year in Tagaytay.

Geographically speaking, the Taal volcano and the lake surrounding it is actually located in the province of Batangas.
Unfortunately, due to the volcano’s hazardous activities since April, we didn’t get the chance to spend the summer in Tagaytay this year.
