Life of Pi. Pi..Pi..Paytrick! ahahaha!
"Do not listen to what they say. Go See." is a Chinese proverb and probably my favorite quote. Indeed it is true.
I just finished a 3 day trip to the province of Cagayan and truly, I am exhausted. And if I had listened to the people who said that the travel time is too long and that I should go somewhere closer to the city, I would not feel every bit fulfilled as I am amazed of all the beautiful places I’ve seen.
I have been longing to go to Palaui Island since 2011 after reading the blog by The Pinay Solo Backpacker. All her photos were pretty rad and looked like it was taken from another country. But the real thing was so much more and I’m so glad I decided to see it for myself.
Day 1: Callao Cave tour and Church hopping.
Boat ride back to the main road from the cave. Ate some halo halo to freshen up! Whew..
Stranded in the middle of nowhere on our way to visit some churches because the jeepney got a flat tire. Tsk! Just one of the many series of unfortunate events on our trip…
Finally, we made it to Piat. At this point we had some trouble again. There were no more vans or jeeps going back to Tuguegarao so we hitchhiked. Luckily, the people in the North were very generous. Some folks gave us a free ride back to the city where the Sts. Peter and Paul Church is located. After that we had dinner and tried the Pansit Batil Patung.
Day 2: Off to Santa Ana Cagayan
I have to say that my favorite destination was Cape Engaño in Palaui Island. Like a friend of mine said, It looks like a scene from Temple Run.
After a few hours of island hopping (Anguib beach to Palaui to Manidad), we finally went back to Jotay’s Resort… had dinner, went to chill by the beach, made a bonfire which we later found out was not allowed, and went to bed.
Day 3: Went back to the busy streets of Manila.
Now, there were some misfortunes here and there but all in all, I’d say it was a freakin’tastic trip! And if you are a travel junkie, you should definitely include Cagayan Valley on your list of destinations. The simple way of living and the scenery in all its natural beauty is something you should not miss. But don’t take my word for it. Go see for yourself!
It’s more fun in the Philippines!
