Bohol, Philippines

Retro Product Alert Twitter Header (1)

As the world slowly lifts travel restrictions and opens up to tourists, we celebrated my husband’s birthday in Bohol. It’s a domestic travel, which I pretty much appreciated because our home country is very beautiful and there are so many places yet to visit. We’ve planned this trip after our Boracay trip in February, and we were lucky enough that the restrictions did not heighten. 

We stayed at Panglao Sea Resort which is a very lovely and peaceful place at the heart of Pangalo Island. The staff and the owner are all very friendly and accommodating. We definitely fell in love with the place as well as the food. Continue reading

Travel Bag: Packing My Luggage

As the world slowly opens up and return to ‘normal’, we are finally allowed to travel again! This year, we scheduled domestic travels first and this month, we’re going to Bohol. It’s one of the places that’s well-known not only for the tourist spots such as the infamous Chocolate Hills, but also dive-spots. In recent years, more and more people have been into diving, and Bohol is definitely one of the places in the country where you can enjoy this sport.

It’s honestly my first time to go there, so I’m really looking forward to exploring the place. One of my goals is to swim with the sardines and the turtles (if I get lucky!). I’m pretty excited to share my experience on my blog once we get back, but for this specific blogpost, I’m going to share with you the stuff that I always bring with me during travels! It’s kind of like What’s In Your Bag, except it’s a luggage. Haha

Summer Getaway: Laiya, Batangas

My most favorite sport to do is swimming as I used to compete for swimming competitions in our school when I was in grade school, when I started having monthly periods, I withdrew from the swim class but that doesn’t mean I also let go of my love for the sport. I think that, like reading, it will always be a big part of my life and ever since I got married and have had the freedom to do whatever I want and go wherever I want, I’ve rekindled my love for swimming and, not only that, it has come back with an even stronger passion.

Honeymoon at Boracay Island

We knew that we wanted to have our honeymoon after the wedding so we can relax after all the tiresome craziness that is wedding planning. During the early days of the preparation period, the hubs wanted to go to Maldives, but given the situation with the pandemic where nothing seems to final because of the changes in restrictions, we didn’t opt to push for an international flight and went for a domestic adventure instead.

We booked this place in replacement for our supposed out-of-town trip that was cancelled because of the heightened restrictions imposed in NCR. We needed a breather from so many things, and it was really good thing that we found this place online. The whole place was very clean, spacious, and safe. Continue reading

Nuvali, Sta. Rosa: Solenad & Amaia Steps

We didn’t want to leave La Finca, but our time was already up. The morning of our check-out date, we still managed to wake up early to do some morning swim. The water was freezing, but nothing can really stop us from taking our final dip in the pool! We started moving and fixing our stuff at around 10:30 AM, took a bath, got dressed, and took some photos before before we left.

It’s been a year since we last got the chance to go on a real vacation, and since they have been easing the quarantine restrictions in the country, we decided to go on a mini getaway just to take a breather from work (and my stress).

My boyfriend found this place in Lipa, Batangas which not only looked safe, but also very peaceful. The setup is a mini house with its own private pool, so you wouldn’t have to worry about having contact with other people or guests.
