“I love basking under the sun,”
is not something you’d hear from me, ever. I was never a fan of beaches ’cause I hate getting darker, I hate that clammy feeling when it’s too hot, and most of all, I hate getting sand inside my bathing suit. Given this, I wasn’t too keen on going on an island-hopping adventure when we were in CamSur. This, of course, didn’t leave my cranium for fear that my companions would leave me out on the sea. Yet even when I wasn’t excited about it, visiting the islands of Caramoan turned out to be one of the most fulfilling experiences I’ve had in my sordid life. And now let me give you a preview of the beauty that awaits you in Caramoan.
To complete the Survivor-like experience, we booked at West Peninsula Villas in Caramoan, the hotel where some cast and crew of the reality TV show, Survivor stayed. The two-hour boat ride from Sabang took us to Guijalo Port where we were picked up by a van from West Pen. The native design resort has props and mementos from Survivor. Amenities include a gym, a swimming pool, and a dining hall.
If it wasn’t for the reality TV show, Survivor I wouldn’t have known that somewhere in Camarines Sur there is an unexploited, rugged, and breath-taking beautiful group of islands. The show has put it on the map, which pretty much explains why it is currently one of the most preferred summer destinations this year. And today ladies and gents, I will begin the story on how I got my tan in what has to be, one of the most beautiful places in the Philippines, Caramoan Islands.
I’m back, which means I am cutting short my hiatus shiznit. Nope, I haven’t completely resolved the thing that had me packing but I can say that I’m little better now. Anyway, today I am going to share to you this noble undertaking I took part of last holy week with my new-found friends from the blogosphere. On March 30, 2013, I joined the second volunteering project of the Pinoy Bloggers Outreach (PBO) at Bahay ni Maria (BNM) in Calamba City, Laguna.
