It’s summer time! And now is the best time to get out there to get some sun and listen to the waves of the ocean. I love exploring new places and always being on the go. I realized that before my feet travel any further…. I wanted to go back to my roots. Earlier this year, I decided to go back to the country where I was born, to where my past has taught me to be resilient and the present reminds me to live life one day at a time.
This is only day one of my travel to El Nido and I have even more to share with you from this amazing place. Getting here is not the easiest trip, but it is well worth the effort to be able to take in these breathtaking views!
The most common way is to fly from Manila Airport (MNL) to Puerto Princesa Airport (PPS / PPIA) for about one hour, and from there it is about a 5 hour drive to get to the beach. As soon as we got there, we are all stunned by the amazing views. I am no longer looking into the paintings of my dreams. This is it! The beautiful exotic paradise is right in front of me and I am finally crossing this place off of my travel bucket list.
We arrived later in the afternoon around 5pm. The sun was starting to set by that time and we were ready to devour the island food and get some cocktails. Shortly after that, my friends and family decided to go back to hotel to get some much needed sleep for our next day adventures. But I couldn’t resist.. I had to film this short video so I could share it with you. I hope you enjoy the glimpse of this island.
On my next video I will be showing more of the islands that make up the Palawan Archipelago. I’ll also be sharing more images from our travels to El Nido to give you a better idea as to why this island has twice been voted the ‘Best Island in the World’ by travelers. Stay tuned and be sure to subscribe to get updates on my next video.

My goal is to inspire others to believe in themselves, to be comfortable with what and who they are, express their own uniqueness, and to motivate people to go out and do things outside of their comfort zone. I would love to connect with you!Read More
