Summer Getaway-Part 1

Most of the time , the first thing that comes to our mind when we heard the word “summer” is beautiful beaches, right?. Last year our summer was consumed by just staying at home. No summer getaways and other stuff that people usually do during summer. Lucky, our summer this time will not be the same as last year. Many thanks to my boyfriend for allowing us to have an out of town summer getaway with my family.

On our way to Cebu with my nephew

We were booked for one night and two days stay at Anika Island Resort Sta Fe, Bantayan on April 19-20, 2017. Well, supposed to be it was a 2 night stay but I decided to stay for one night and spend our budget for the second day to roam around Cebu. Gladly, the boyfriend agreed. So anyway, the planed was to leaved on Sunday (Easter Sunday) at night so we will have time roam around before going to Bantayan. But because of the bad weather caused by typhoon Crising I don’t have any choice but to change our itinerary. I asked my younger brother to buy our ticket for Monday but unluckily the 10pm trip from Ormoc to Cebu was fully booked which is not surprising because the trip for Saturday was cancelled due to typhoon Crising. We don’t have any other option but to grab the Tuesday trip unless we take the fastcraft which is not on my plan because of my fare budget.

Bluer than blue..on our way to Bantayan Island

Hence our booking at Anika Island Resort is on the following day we only slept on our rented room for one night and checked out early in the morning as we planned to travel on or before 7 o’clock in the morning to catch the early trip. We want to arrived at the resort before the check-in time which is 1 o’clock in the afternoon. It was a four hours trip going to Bantayan Island from Cebu North Terminal. My nephew was complaining if we are to go swimming or not since we have been traveling for long. Hahahhaha…!!! The downside if you have a kid when travelling because they can be impatient. The trip going to Bantayan was comfortable, thanks God we were in an air-conditioned bus because if not we will be in a bad mood.

Arrival Sta Fe, Bantayan Port

Upon arrival in Sta Fe, Bantayan Port the resort shuttle driver was waiting for us handling a placard with my name. By the way I called the resort while we were in the ferry that is why we were picked up by the resort shuttle and also it is for free. The boyfriend booked two different rooms. I, my son and my sons Aunt stayed in Sunrise View room while my Mom, my cousin and nephews stayed in the Garden View room. We just asked for an extra beddings for my cousins.

Outing With Friends

Yey! Finally I and friends in back in college had fun yesterday. It’s unang hirit sa tag-init because we agreed to visit an island after a week. The plan of having summer escapade is long overdue. Our last outing is more than two years ago. I was not expecting that we will make it this year. For last two years we have been planning to go somewhere but for reason we always opt to move the plan of going somewhere. Well basically, its the financial problem that stop us.

Anyway, after planning our outing for a week we agreed to visit a newly open resort in Burauen Leyte. Camp Kawayan Resort started operating although it is not full operating yet. I mean, they are still constructing parts of the resort. If I am to rate the service 5 being the highest I will rate it 2.5 The reason- the water is on and off. No water when we are about to take our shower. My nephews need to close their eyes because the put soap on their faces in time when water stops. They waited for few minutes but to no avail. I opt to use the water we have to wash thier faces. With this I am not sure ifbwe going back there.  photo IMG_20160516_160610_zpsbzhvjbui.jpg

The good side is, the resort entrance is affordable compared to the resort in town. 😀
