DAY 3/4 — Nothing but good vibes only

For our third day in this beautiful island we somewhat got worn down to three survivors/adventurers since some of the family members got exhausted from the trek. But I don’t blame since it was quite a long trek and the sun was streaking hot that day. Imagine going through 7 rivers back and forth.

So our last minute game plan was to do another island hopping which was decided during breakfast since we didn't want the day to get wasted. Just so you know, that’s how easy going the Puzon’s are. It was down to my uncle Albert, my cousin Miguel and I. We rushed to the boat right away, the moment it got booked and it was kinda humiliating since we were the last ones who arrived and not to mention the only ones they were waiting till the boat sailed *cringe*

This island hoping consisted of climbing palm trees, fresh coconut drinks, spontaneously swinging off a tree, strangers that became friends through a photo, kayaking with no game plan, going inside unknown caves, swimming the great ocean and seeing the world down there. It was post card after post card sight seeing views and we just couldn't get enough.

There was even a moment where we just sat there by the shore sitting with the best view with Halo-halo, Bananacue and a cold beer in our hands with great company. I remember it being perfect, it was my definition of perfect.

This guy is absolutely having the time of his life.

"One thing I've realized during this trip was, the first step towards somewhere is to decide that you are not gonna stay where you are – Slowly seeing clearly like the ocean."

The two amazing people we met during the trip. Their names are Garrett and Steph, let me share to you how we met them. It was through a photo where a local was actually trying to take a photo of us and decided to take a photo of them since there were passing through.

Cheers to life, and cheers to cold coconuts during a hot day 🌴

Miguel basking under the sun the best way possible.

Palm trees. Coconuts. Tanned skin. Sunsets. Good music. Great company.

Absolutely got my daily dose of coconut juice during this trip.

Island children who refuse to go back to the city. At this point, you're going to have to drag us to the airport cause this photo says it all. Basking under the sun with fresh coconut, who would want to go back after this?

Life is truly, completely, honestly better at the beach.

The best seats on the boat.

Talk about #RelationshipGoals.

They have that soul-deep, electrifying connection going on so I decided to take a photo. Nice to meet these two lovers during my Palawan trip.

They got that Cali swag going on.

My uncle Albert decided to float around instead of kayaking.

This was the photo I was talking about. No words can ever describe how thankful I am for this shot, because of this photo I now have an amazing story to tell, and the people I can call my friends.

We just connected right away.

Isn't life, but one grand adventure, so make sure to live every second of it —Kayaking our way to the Small Lagoon.

The moment where Steph said "okay guys, looks stupid drunk" in the photo, this was the outcome of it.

Probably one of the most fun nights I had my entire life. This was the night where Miguel and I decided to attend the Full Moon part in Las Cabanas Beach, El Nido and to think we just met them earlier that day but the thing is, it just felt right, it's like we've known them for a long time. I'm internally grateful for that local who took a photo of them.

Okay, a little back story :

We found out about the party through one of the boatmen during our island hoping venture. Right of the batt we already knew we were going, we were like all in synced. We knew where the beach was, we just didn’t know exactly how far it was. So we just took the first tricycle we saw and said "full moon party" and the tricycle driver already knew where it was really quick!

We rode in the tricycle with no hesitation, after a few minutes I was kind of getting worried since it’s been about 15 minutes and we weren’t still there, trust me when you’re on an island, 15 minutes is already long. At this point, what was running through my head was “This is going to be a hella of an adventure, but please God let nothing bad happen to us, Amen” a few seconds after the tricycle driver said “we’re here” but we didn’t really see any party lights or loud music nearby. Not knowing the party is way down there by the shore and quite a long walk. But I kinda liked the walk, it’s the going home is I’m worried about (if you know what I mean)

We got to the party, tons of common people who went there for the same reason - Let loose and just have a good time. We got a couple of drinks, got good seats right in front the shore and danced the night away.

Then we ended up in the rooftop of the same resort, we were staying in - Ipil Suites (Talk about destiny with these people, I know) Looking at the moon and comparing it with our thumbs was a great way to end the night.
