“So, where are we off to next, guys?” someone asked. We were on a backpacking trip in Cambodia and Vietnam. And, while we were enjoying the very chill vibe of Siem Reap, someone replied, “Bali!”
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.
Because we didn’t have a fixed itinerary, I asked Flaj what would be a good place to spend a couple of days at. She was still in law school then and had to be in class and prepare for her exams so Tin and I had to be on our own for a while. She suggested Caramoan Islands, which, according to her, is more beautiful than Boracay. Hmmm… we have to go there.

Saturday morning, I woke up early and packed my stuff for my weekend out-of-town trip. Zambales, baby!
I had breakfast with my family. Then, I left for Victory Liner in Cubao, where I was supposed to meet my friend, Angge, at 8:00 AM for the 9:00 AM bus to Iba, Zambales. I got there at 8:30 AM. Err..
We woke up very early in the morning to enjoy the sunrise in Marabut. It’s been a while since I’ve last visited a beach and this experience made it all the more awesome for me.
