I can’t remember how I and Kate became friends. All I know is that we are both member of a blogging society in Cebu. Personally meet her through an event that I organized. The rest is history.
So, two island girls (that’s how we labeled ourselves) explored Palawan in 6 days and 5 nights to kick-start summer 2014.
Touchdown and En Route to El Nido
A bright and sunny Puerto Princesa greeted us contrary to the rainy weather back in Cebu. Instead of doing DIY roadtrip to El Nido, we booked our van transfer as part of our accommodation in La Casa Teresa Beach Resort to avoid the hassle.
Added bonus was a friendly driver who made a quick stop over along the hi-way for a mandatory sunset shoot for his two passengers who were giggling like teenagers the moment that they saw the sunset from afar.
Sunset and Dinner
We got the best seat to watch sunset in Corong Corong from the balcony. After bragging our sunset experience on social media, we then checked out El Nido Four Seasons Resort.
Good to know that the staff understands and speaks Bisaya. No more language barrier. According to Kate, El Nido Four Seasons Resort Chicken Adobo is the best adobo she’d tasted so far. I on the other hand don’t mind the food as I’m longing to hit the sack.
Hoorah for Today!
Still feeling sleepy and groggy but have to wake up to catch the sunrise. Then, prepped up for the first item on our itinerary which was island hopping arranged by Northern Hope Tours.
Braving the waves of El Nido and found new friends who offered to let us used their shower so we can freshen up before our meet up with another travel blogger who was also in town.
Witness another sunset this time at Mereng Mereng Beach with Josiah and continued our conversations over dinner.
Ended the night with a failed ice cream hunt and a full of hope that we will eat ice cream before leaving El Nido the following day.
It’s a battle between to cancel or not and to leave or stay. Yes, we were having separation anxiety from El Nido for many reasons. First, we can’t get enough about the town and we wanted to explore more. Second, we left our heart in El Nido.
Like any other decisions that you have to make in life, you need to weight things and review your priorities. To sum it up, we left El Nido with a heavy heart. You will know why we fell in love with El Nido in our upcoming post with Red Maleta.
