I had an amazing five days in the island and paradise of El Nido, Palawan. Being connected with nature, just seeing blue and green feels so rejuvenating for the mind, body and soul. Being sun-kissed made me feel grateful for the wonderful creation of this paradise.
I went with my family for this vacation last May 16, 2017 mainly it was just three days that we got to stay in El Nido the other two days was for traveling to get to El Nido and traveling back home, it was a 5 hours drive from the airport to El Nido vice-versa. For 3 days we went island hopping, seeing more and getting deeper with what this paradise could offer— it didn’t disappoint. I couldn’t get enough of the wonderful views that I was seeing, I didn’t even bother to take lots of pictures because taking it all in was enough for me, I don’t want to see it through the lenses or screen. Just sitting in the boat, inhaling the fresh wind, lying in the sand, floating in the sea, staring at the beauty of the islands was enough to store it in my memory bank labeled “memorable”. It was a busy 3 days, our time was limited but we really enjoyed it, for 3 days we had a routine; we wake up at 6:30am to have breakfast and to get ready for we had to leave at 8am for the island hopping which ends at around 4pm then we need to take a shower to head out for dinner and then we go back to our hotel rooms at around 9pm to get some rest.
Three days went by so fast, I wish we had more time to explore and there’s one tour that we missed and also a beach that all the people there said that we should go to, I guess we’ll visit it when we go back there (hopefully soon).
I should say more but I’m not a “travel blogger” I just really wanted to write how relaxing my vacation was but here’s a great travel blog guide that I found by The Travelin’ Boots: Discover El Nido, Palawan: The Ultimate Travel Guide (2017)
It was indeed a much needed vacation for I have to get back on that job-hunting thing and I got to unwind to release and forget my anxiety for awhile. Now that I’m home I need to face the reality again. Thank you El Nido, Palawan for a great time. I’ll see you again… soon.
