A Day at Bunker Dive Resort

Bunker Dive Resort, Bauan, Batangas

If you haven’t heard the news, summer is basically upon us again. And before we know it, it could be almost over already. I already had a dose of Vitamin Sea so Bunker Dive Resort ain’t the first for this season but because I loved our quickie how quick and easy it was to get there, here I am, bragging about it first.

Hinugtan Beach: A Getaway from Boracay

Chillin' like a villain at Hinugtan Beach, Buruanga, Aklan

Spending a Night in Fortune Island

Fortune Island, Nasugbu, Batangas

When I first heard of Fortune Island and the pillars on it which resemble those of the Parthenon, I immediately locked it as a target because I know for a fact that in this life I’ll probably never step foot in Greece. So when I read in the comments of a blog post (while looking for beaches to go to) about a trip to Fortune Island organized by #JJTours, I hit up two friends and in no time I was already at the bank paying for our down payment. What did just happen.
