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.
Exhausted from all the craziness the previous day (cramming papers, last-minute packing, braving the heavier than usual traffic in the metro) and with barely a couple of hours of sleep, I was just really looking forward to chillin’ in Bali for our first day in Indonesia. And, it was a good thing that we found a good resting spot for us, Bakung Beach Resort. It was sort of a last minute decision to book this hotel because we were all being so OC as to where we should stay, months prior. But, Angge found this place and, after checking the reviews, we decided to book it.
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.
