If you're looking for a place that could fill your craving for a road trip, get sun-kissed, chill, surf or skim board, and enjoy your weekend, drive (or take the bus) to San Juan, La Union and stay at Flotsam and Jetsam Hostel. Bonus would be that they play really nice music, have lots of bean bags where you can lounge for almost the entire day (my friends and I did), and serve uber-awesome food. Oh, and we visited this place again a couple of weekends ago, when electricity and water were out in La Union - they provided great customer service, a definite plus in our list.
I have been too preoccupied with work. And, for someone who’s been a pseudo-bum for a year and a half, a weekend getaway to wherever would definitely be welcome. So, when my friend, Angge, asked if I wanted to meet her in Cagayan de Oro for a three-day-two-night weekend getaway, I instantly said yes.
Our last stop for this trip Nagsasa Cove, where we would be spending the night. It was a good thing that we decided to stay here instead of in Anawangin as the latter was more crowded. We got to Nagsasa just before sunset and it turned out to be a blessing because we got to set up our tents near the water.
It was almost not going to happen. Backing out and deciding to be on board again, didn’t transpire only once. And, up to the last minute, too. But, miracle of miracles, we all chose to be in the space of adventure. It was everyone’s first time to camp. It was everyone’s first time to visit the islands. It was our first time to travel with this group. And, it was amazing.
