"Then, she began to breathe, and live, and every moment took her to a place where goodbyes were hard to come by. She was in love, but not in love with someone or something, she was in love with her life. And for the first time, in a long time, everything was inspiring."
Just like any other person who loves traveling as much as I do, I’d always dreamt of going to Batanes. Despite being cynically believed to be a typhoon belt, I’d always imagined myself wading across its vast green pastures, breathing in fresh air and basking creation at its best. Just a week ago, I was struck by a random midnight thought that made me want to get away. Few minutes later, I was booking myself a roundtrip ticket to Batanes.
Ironically, I went to a place where people live by the words “Honesty is the best policy and it starts with me.” Thus, the zero crime rate in the smallest and northernmost province of the Philippines. I didn’t inform anyone about this trip, except for my best friend. My parents never stopped me from going places. Just as long as I ask permission. This time, I didn’t. I felt guilty upon arriving, so I called up my mom saying “Surprise! I’m in Batanes!”. Good thing both of them have always been wanting to go to Batanes. They just asked me to send them pictures.
I’m not really a good story teller so just let my pictures do the talking. I have kept a few favorites to show you later.
I couldn’t find a better way to end this post. But, I’ll tell you what. Just go. Don’t say no. Nothing’s worse than the chances you didn’t take, the words you never said, the places you didn’t go, the pictures you didn’t take, missing the people you never met, and the time when it’s too late.
in F8 in Gorordo. :)
Hello! I’ll see what I can do with that. Hehe. :)
"Move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. Walk in someone else’s shoes or at least eat their food. Open your mind, get up off the couch. Move."
I don’t work out. I just eat right. :) Thank you! And it’s not really that gorgeous. Hehe.
Aaaw thank you so much! But I’m not even close to being perfect. :D

Hello! Thank you so much for your kind words. :) I really don’t have an idea with the Olympus coz I don’t have one. The SRT101 is a great camera though. Everything is manual. Best for practicing. :) Thanks again!
