grub + travels + perspectives

January 2015 Travel: Palaui Island

I think I can never be good at blogging about my travels. It's either I post a summary or a photo diary, or about the food you should try/ the place's specialties, but never a detailed, blow-by-blow account of the trip -- little bits of information like what type of transportation is available, the fares, the fees, boat ride schedules, what to ask the locals, etc. That's one of the great things about Ian (LOL, bola) because he prepares and researches for all the info we would need prior to our trips and makes it as budget-friendly as possible. I really wish he would start his travel blog, but well, he ended up making a travel vlog instead, which is not bad at all.

My 2015 started with my most adventure-filled travel to date. Hahaha. It was when Charm, Ian and I went to Tuguegarao to visit Palaui Island. The weather was uncooperative for the most part (it was raining since day 1 but it actually made us enjoy our Korean dinner on our last day there) that made me so nervous about the thought of traveling by boat for an hour just to get from point A to B, plus the fact that I'm not good at swimming. I can remember the waves. Oh my God, the waves. It was such a nerve-wracking ride. But it was all so worth it. So freaking worth it.

So here's a ~4-minute clip that features the paradise that is Palaui. (Yes, I like to raise my hands too much. Hahaha.)
