Booked almost a year ahead, I flew in to the most beautiful island in the world with few to zero expectations. And I think that’s what made this trip even more spectacular.
Our 5-day trip to El Nido, with a side trip to Puerto Princesa, was such an amazing experience. I am honestly lost for words the moment my eyes met the island of El Nido. And we haven’t even gone to the best ones yet.

What’s the best way to jumpstart your new year’s resolution of trying new things? Go hiking.
For someone who lives a sedentary lifestyle and has been in an on-and-off relationship with workouts and similar activities, even a beginner’s hike can seem like a 9/9 difficulty level already.
