"You'll never know how many friends you have 'till you head to the beach"

A little advice from the ocean : "Be shore of yourself, Comeout of your shell, Expand your horizon, Don't get tide down, Let worries drift away and think big, Live deep!" #PinterestFeels To sum up this whole trip, it was unbelievable, and it was the long weekend that I don't mind doing all over again. I was carefree and felt away from the busy city which is just what I need at that moment. I needed a breathe of fresh air, and that's exactly what I got. The smell of the salty air, the sound of the waves, and the sun burn that left a mark on my skin. These made it all so meaningful.

So here, I want to share to you all my wonderful experience, and maybe you guys could pick up an idea when you plan your next adventure.

Board Culture is THE hangout place day or night, especially at night, because of the chill lights. They have cards, sungka, a pool table and other house game which makes it really fun. There's something about the place that gives off a chill vibe, or maybe because the owner is as chill as well- James. He's one of the owners of the place. We hang out here almost everyday and stayed here for our last night. And did I mention, their spot is beach front, sweet!

Their price rates are:

1,000/per night (no bathroom)

1,200/per night (with private bathroom)

Another place you guys can stay-in is the well-known The Circle Hostel. I've stayed here before and it's super artsy and refereshing. What I love most is the story behind the name, The Circle, because in that place nobody's a stranger. The Circle is great for backpackers, people who are travelling solo and/or in a budget trip. They are certified as the first chain of budget freindly eco-hostels in the Philippines. Their goal is to create a positive and friendly community atmosphere among travellers which you'll feel once you stay there.

If there's THE hang out place, there is also THE place to eat- Mama Phoebe's. They sell everything too, as in everything that you'll need. Just name it! And yes, if you're wondering if there's really a Mama Phoebe, she exist. She is like the mother of that place. Everyone knows her and greets her all the time. She's like a bundle of sunshine when you see her, always smiling.

Tip: If you plan to go to Zambales, make sure to try Mama Phoebe's Banana Chocolate shake. It's the bomb! I swear it's so good that it'll make you come back for more! By the way, everything is walking distance.
