Paraws and Sunsets

One of my favorite moments during our Boracay vacation. On our last day, we decided to go paraw sailing to catch the sunset. A paraw is a typical sailboat here in the Philippines, and like any other sailboat, it gets its speed and direction from the wind and waves that carries it. The paraw travel has been exciting and super fun because of the big waves splashing at us while we were busy getting our afternoon fill of beer and margarita.

In the middle of the sea, the boatmen threw down the anchor and let us marvel on the golden sky while the waves below rocked us.┬áNothing beats the beauty of the sunset when you’re one with nature. Whether you’re atop a mountain peak or just bummin’ by the beach, sunsets are always a magical experience.

Summer Getaways

I used to be so excited about summer because it means beach trips, outdoor adventures, and plain fun under the sun. Never mind the heat. As long as I have a good bottle of sunblock and a lip balm, I’m game to do anything.

For the past 3 years, my summer has been jam packed with out of town trips. Because I don’t have any concrete plans this summer and my previous self-pity post (haha!), I will just reminisce on my best summer memories.┬áHere are some of those:

April 2009: Beach (Despidida) Party in Boracay
Late March 2010: Nature appreciation in Sagada
April 2010: Back to Basics in Nagsasa and Anawangin, Zambales
March 2011: Surfing and Food Trippin’ in La Union
April 2011: Adrenaline Junkie in Cagayan de Oro (All of these happened in just one day!)
April 2011: Water Affair in Camiguin

Summer of 2012, it’s already late April. What do you have in store for me?
