Hello there civilization!
I was hoping to write when Monel and I were on vacation but I didn’t get around to it. We were very busy visiting with family and friends and traveling all over the place. It was great to view the different places within the Philippines while we were there and to meet so much family and get to know all of them. Family is key in my life and as well as Monel’s life. Which is why it was so important to me to meet her family and get to know them better.
We visited to multiple different places and saw most all of the family on her Mama and Papa’s side. While in Manila we met up with quite a few friends and Monel participated in a wedding of one of her best friends. It was beautiful to see a Filipino wedding and to watch it in the Manila Cathedral.
For a few days her and I had a mini vacation to Boracay and visited a number of different areas while we were there. While there we stayed at the Blue Lilly Hotel right on the beach. We had an awesome experience with multiple activities. ATV riding, parasailing, snorkeling, helmet diving, visiting Carabao Island (also called Romblon), and eating some amazing food of course!
We stayed on another island towards the end of the trip with a four of her friends (now our friends 🙂 ). Where we went was called Coron on the island of Palawan. This island is a lot less industrialized for tourism at this point in time so its a bit more of a fun trip for us. We really enjoyed the island hopping we did while visiting Coron and I would love to go back someday and visit another portion of Palawan to see El Nido or Puerto Princesa.
I will have more pictures, videos, and stories to share later on once I get more time to compile them into a better format and edited state. Please bear with us on that one :). there are some photos and videos up on my instagram already but a full on video is in the works to show better where we went throughout the entire trip and to explain our story. This truly was an amazing journey and I look forward to sharing more with you later.
Stay classy and travel often!
Adios (for now),
