HELLO PHILIPPINES

THE PHILIPPINES IS ONE OF THOSE PLACES I SEEM TO END UP IN A LOT.

EVERY TIME THE AIRPLANE LANDS IN NINOY ACKINO AIRPORT THERE’S A HUGE SMILE ON MY FACE, ΑΝD I’M SO READY TO GET SUN BURNED, HAHA !

SO THIS TIME WAS MY 5TH TIME IN THE PHILIPPINES AND MY SCHEDULE WAS PACKED.
CITY STROLLS IN BEAUTIFUL MAKATI, COFFEES, AND SHOPPING.
WEEKENDS ROLLED ALSO PRETTY WELL, AS I TRAVELED TO THE MAINLAND OF THE PHILIPPINES AND ENDED UP IN BEAUTIFUL BALER.
BALER IS THE PROVINCIAL CAPITAL OF AURORA, IT IS LOCATED 230 KILOMETERS NORTH-EAST OF MANILA VIA A MOUNTAIN PASS ( BUT GUYS, IT’S MORE THAN SIX HOURS DRIVE DUE TO THE BIG TRAFFIC, CRAZY…). THE CITY OF BALER BORDERS ON THE PACIFIC OCEAN, HAS ENDLESS BEACHES, ZILLIONS OF PALM TREES, AND THE FRUIT MARKET IS SOMETHING INSANE… TONS OF MANGOES, FRESH BUKO JUICE (COCONUT WATER), DRAGON FRUITS, RAMBUTAN,MANGOSTEEN AND TONS OF OTHER STUFF. THE FRUIT MARKET STALLS LOOK LIKE THE TYPICAL INSTA PICTS THAT WE LOVE TO REPOST, HAHA.

I STAYED IN THE CIRCLE HOSTEL, A REBEL SURFER STYLE HOSTEL WHERE YOU CAN RENT ONLY A HAMMOC IN STEAD OF JUST A BED, SHARE THE WOMAN’S BATHROOM, AND BRUSH YOUR TEETH IN FRONT OF MANY OTHER TRAVELERS THAT JUST HANGING OUT ON THE FLOOR, SINGING AND PLAYING GUITAR, (DON’T YOU THINK THAT I SLEPT ON THE HAMMOC, HAHA, NO I COULDN’T… I JUST RENTED A BED WITH A MOSQUITO NET ON THE TOP AND I’M NOT LYING , I HAD ONE OF THE BEST. SLEEPS. EVER. http://www.baler.thecirclehostel.com

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED AND TOTALLY RECOMMEND CIRCLE HOSTEL FOR ANYONE LOOKING FOR A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE OF THE PHILIPPINES! IT’S A GREAT WAY TO MEET FELLOW TRAVELERS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD WHO LOVE TO SURF.

THE FOLLOWING WEEKEND WAS A LOOONG WEEKEND !
I TOOK AN ONE HOUR FLIGHT FROM MANILA TO BOHOL ISLAND, AND FROM THERE IT WAS ONLY A HALF-HOUR BOAT RIDE TO PARADISE! THERE IS A SMALL, HOOK-SHAPED VIRGIN ISLAND, LITERALLY CALLED ‘VIRGIN ISLAND’!
THIS WAS THE LOCATION OF THE PHOTO SHOOT FOR NESOI’S SS2016 COLLECTION. WE DID THE SHOOT OVER THE COURSE OF 2 GORGEOUS, SUNNY DAYS. THE PICS WILL BE ONLINE SOON – STAY TUNED!
