Trees lined the “highway” and children ran around freely under their shades. It was a quiet island, only the hums of the tryk’s motor filled the streets. No one stared at us erasing the feeling of alienation.
One of Philippines' renowned travel bloggers, JMS, was still in the area and agreed to accompany me and and my buddy-less self. We met that morning and went surfing "together." (Oh that word sounds so cunning.)
One time, as I temporarily gained consciousness during my REM, I was shocked to see my forehead directly in a 'too-close-for-comfort' contact against seatmate's forehead.
Due to time constraint, the plan was to surf for one day and leave the same night. So that's what I did. Basically, it was genius.
We had some weird moments of sleepiness and after more than 8 hours of travelling, we arrived at El Nido to do the pre-nup.
And so begins
Praying along the beach is the best experience for a prayerful person. I mean, yeah it’s all about God, but seeing my bedsheet compared to seeing the calm waters of El Nido beach is just amazing. I kept on saying, "God, thank You. Thank You!" and repeated that for like ten times two times.
Accommodations are cheap but the food is somehow deceiving. A simple meal is priced at the Manila average so be ready for this too.
Our hotel was one of the best ones I've been in. Ever.
No one really takes time to pick up washed up twigs and seashell remnants washed ashore, but it still had something serenely beautiful about it. I actually loved it. Any beach for me will do. I live in the metro, where things can get ugly anytime. Digisit Beach offered to me a break away from all that.
