Enjoying Summer Vacations at the Beach

It has been tradition in our company to spend a 3-day summer vacation every year on some faraway pristine beach in the Philippines. Two years ago, we spent summer at Palawan. We did not enjoy it as much as we should have because of the storm. Nevertheless, it was one of the unforgettable ones that we had. We had it scheduled around May and was unaware that summer would be ending early that year. We were hit by the first storm of the year and spent our days under gloomy skies and rainy days. We missed the snorkling and island-hopping that we had been looking forward to and had to spend most of the day curled up in our terraces chatting and laughing. At night, we enjoyed each other’s company over tequila and karaoke. After three days of drinking and eating with rain pouring hard on the roof, we were all eager to go home to the clear and sunny skies of Manila. Unfortunately, planes were still unable to fly under the weather and we had to stay another day. Under normal circumstances, it would’ve been a welcome delay. But the storm and grumpy weather had taken its toll on us. Needless to say, we got home a day late with not a hint of tan on our skin.

Last year, we had more fun spending our summer vacation in Pearl Farm, Davao. This time, we made sure the sun was up and scheduled the vacation as early as March. Food was not as good as it was in Palawan. But the sun was up and we spent days swimming and soaking it up. The nights were almost the same as we laughed and got drank till the wee hours of the morning. By the time we went home, we had a perfect tan that proved how much fun we had frolicking under the sun.

This year, we will be spending 4 days in Panglao Island, Bohol at Amorita Resort. Watch out for my next post to tell everyone how it went. The storm just left Bohol and we expect sunny weather when we arrive there tomorrow.
