Island Hopping in The Philippines!

Island Hopping in The Philippines!

I have just returned from a trip to Mexico, and realized I never did blog anything from a trip I took over the summer to The Philippines! Just one month after my outrageously gorgeous trip to Israel, I got to fly across the globe for some Island hopping in the Philippines!

It was a two week long trip so I don’t have time to write about everything I got to do while I was over there, but I do encourage anyone who has the opportunity to visit to do so. It is a beautiful diverse set of islands with wonderful people and so much to see and do!

Motorcycles are very prevalent over there, I saw as many as 6 people on one bike at a time. Pig roasts are also a huge part of their culture, every family that hosted a gathering had one!

Outside the market the streets are full of customized pedi cabs for shoppers to carry home their wares. Pedi cabs are all unique, cheap, and a very fun/fast way to get around!

A farmer transports a truckload of eggs to the market, and I enjoy the colors and lights at a banana stand.

My last stop before heading back to Manilla, Vista Mar Dive Resort! These were the real colors of the sunset the night I arrived here. It was unbelievable.

Thank you to everyone for your patience while I was out of the country, I will be back in full swing at my office starting tomorrow!

  1. LOVE! My brother just came back from the Phillipines and I had an opportunity to go about five years back and I didn’t, and now I wish I had. I love travel photos. Your photos look amazing, I just wanna hop on a plane and go! Oh to be rich! :)
