It’s Feb, but it says Summer on my Calendar!!!

February 20, 2010

It’s my second Saturday of staying in at home. Normally, i look forward to long drunken weekend nights with friends. But now, I think I am getting bored once again. Being a city dweller, I, every now and then, yearn for liberation from repetitive intolerance… I need to get out once in a while. I need a break from pavements to keep my head sane. And having said that, here I am checking all the wonders of the world trip advisor can offer. Summer in the Philippines has practically started and in my head, are pictures of pristine beaches, clean air and the mighty sun shining through.

Let me share with you some beautiful travel offers that includes you having to bring flip flops and maybe some sun screen, as you please. ( I haven’t been to these places yet. But these destinations are definitely on my dream list.)

1.  Amanpulo, Palawan

Amanpulo of Aman Resorts

Amanpulo is known to be one of the most expensive and exclusive resorts in the Philippines. It is privately situated on its own island of Pamalican, in the Cuyo Islands, very close to Palawan. I wouldn’t be surprised if one turon would cost me Php 350 (Just an example). But then again, look at the fine white sand, almost blinding to the eyes. The water (according to friends and photos) is crystal clear, I may not feel the need to snorkel.

2. Mykonos, Greece

Mykonos, Greece

 

If only I did not spend too much on traveling last 2009, I would say this season would be the best time to travel to Greece. The country is bankrupt and it needs all the help it can get, tourism being one. My business partner told me that for him, Mykonos is one of the craziest Euro trips he had. It has this cosmopolitan feel, where partying is highly intense. That I want to see!

3. Bali, Indonesia

Some Surfer Dude

 

Bali is a surfing destination in Indonesia… Or in another part, a romantic getaway for couples. I think I would enjoy this tropic island rich in culture. Maybe even learn and get inspired by Balinese Hinduism… I just hope the island does not smell like Durian.

4. Batanes

Batanes Beach

Batanes is on the top most part of the Philippines, as it appears floating in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and South China Sea. Typhoons are very common in this island, if not, the small province stands silent and still as if waiting. I was told that Batanes carries a very different charm as if it exists in a different era. Stone houses and bicycles create a picturesque view and the sound of silence may be deafening… to which I think i would need to experience at least once in my life.

5. Jamaica

Jamaica

 

I want to see Jamaica. I don’t know exactly why but i just want to see and feel their way of life… oh and visit Bob Marley’s home & mausoleum… yeah… That.

So, don’t you also want to just leave the city right about now???
