El Nido, Palawan Islands, Philippines

Hi All!

It's been a while since I've done a throwback travel post, but the warm weather we've been getting in Beijing is calling me back to the Philippines!  Will and I took a trip to El Nido last year to get out of the Beijing smog and to check out if the beaches were actually as blue as they were said to be ... and THEY WERE!!!! When I first met Will, I thought he was the most serious person in the world, which is still kind of true, but over time I've come to realize he's also the most selfless, thoughtful, and kind person I know.  These are traits that you can't hide or express with words, but traits seen through actions over time.  I know i may be repeating myself, but I can't express my gratitude enough for all the wonderful people in my life.  Thank you for taking this wonderful trip and journey with me, and for making the Beijing haze an enjoyable #Beijingdaze. 

We had to take a 20 seater plane, which was delayed for a whole day because the sun set too early, and they were skeptical to navigate to the island with the minimal lighting (gettin' real Adventure-like here).  We landed at 6am the following morning, and proceeded to trek across the island to our cute red ocean front bungalow.  You could see the bottom of the ocean floor 10 meters down from the beach, and it was absolutely marvellous.  For those of you who don't know... we are both marine lovers and especially fish lovers.  There was a point we saw two squids mating from the dock through the clear waters.  Anyway, there isn't much else to say.  The trip was lovely, the company was golden, the locals never disappoint with their hospitality and the scenery was so much more than I expected.  Here are some snaps from the trip! Enjoy ;)
