Where I Belong

Not many people would identify Puerto Galera as their ideal vacation spot. It does not have the best beaches. It's not the trendiest spot. For some reason, though, I found Tamaraw Beach to be so comfortable that I feel right at home when I go there. Last weekend was perhaps the most relaxing stay I've had in the resort. Two songs just kept playing in my head...can anyone guess?

Here are some of my favorite pictures from last weekend.My only problem with the resort was that they only had instant coffee. I had to visit the next door neighbor - Sunset at Aninuan for the brewed kind. To my (pleasant) surprise, Tamaraw now serves brewed coffee!

A visit to this part of The Philippines simply has to include a meal at Luca's.Huge plate of pasta puttanesca...and an even bigger pizza (bolognese, fancy that!)Luca's is movin' on up. The place is nicer and they even had a guy playing live music during lunch. I couldn't believe it when he started singing The Dance! (Almost as much as I couldn't believe I recognized the song!!!)

That's me happily walking on the beach with a full tummy and satiated soul.
There's this tiny river near the resort and we walked around to pick some stones for Dex. He's loving them now!
Sunrise...deserted beach...heaven!
My area of choice for the weekend. I took this around 6am. See that blue bundle on the sun chair? I think the guy slept there all night!

Muelle Port - the main port of Puerto Galera. That's where we got the discount for the fare. I think this is going to be my port of destination from now on. It's not too far from the resort and they will pick you up for free.

Going home, I couldn't help but notice how nice the new SLEX is. The ride was so comfy that even if you were looking for hemorrhoid relief, you wouldn't mind the drive!

One last photo to remember my weekend by...
...these are the days that I've been missing...give me the taste, give me the joy of summer wine...
All good things come to an end...am back in the city but my room is already booked for the Holy Week!
