MY UNFORGETTABLE VACATION
by : Yhunize Gatpandan
Traveling gives us a lot of great memories we can always look back on. Getting out of our comfort zone opens the mind to more ideas and possibilities. And while it gives us a peek into how the rest of the world lives, it also makes us appreciate more what we have back home.
The most unforgettable travel experience for me is my trip with my auntie and cousins to Palawan last January 2016. It was my 2nd time here in Palawan, the 1st time is with my family but I didn’t recall any memories because I am only 1-year old at that time. According to them, we spend 8 days and visited a lot of tourist places. We planned to go to Palawan to attend the 1st birthday of my cousin that resides in Puerto Princesa City. I don’t know what to feel when the plane started to move or run on the runway but it was an exciting experience when we are above sky level. On the 2nd day, we went to Brooke’s Point, a municipality where my auntie resided. A very long drive because it takes almost 8 hours. It is a very good place because at the back of their home is a beach where we can swim and it is more beautiful during sunrise where we can walk throughout the entire beach. It is my 1st time experience seeing a fisherman having fresh fish and other seafoods in their boat. On the 3rd day and before going back to Manila, we visited different tourist places here in Puerto like Baker’s Hill, Crocodile Farm, Butterfly Garden, and others. It was such a really beautiful place where you can spend the rest of the day without the feeling of tiredness.
Three days is not enough to visit all the places in Puerto as per my Uncle. We didn’t visit the Underground River, a tourist destination that is included in the 7 Wonders of the World due to lack of time. If I will be given a chance to visit again the Palawan, I will because I want to explore and to go also in Coron & El Nido, a place that most tourist spent their vacation.
