Camiguin Girls Weekend Getaway

Just a few days after Carpet Head and I arrived from our Euro trip, I was off to another adventure! This time it was to somewhere close to my hometown and with people dear to my heart. Last week, I flew out to my hometown Cagayan de Oro (CDO) where I met up with my soul sisters and we hopped off to the amazingly beautiful island of Camiguin! YAYYYY.

Some years back, my friends and I decided that we should organize an out-of-town girls getaway each year. We don’t always get to go out of town and we’re never complete because, you know, LIFE HAPPENS (a.k.a. weddings, babies, etc.), but we’ve had a few awesome trips. We’ve been to Cebu, Boracay and Puerto Princesa, and it’s been a couple of years since we’ve gone out of town so we’ve been planning this trip for a while.

Of London, Rome and Paris

So we did a bit of traveling recently. First, we went to London to visit the queen. Okay, fine, we went there for the World Ultimate and Guts Championships. Carpet Head played for the Philippine Mixed Team and I was there for support. Yayyy.

To make a long story short, the Mixed Team retained their #7 seed out of 30+ teams. Not too bad really. I think the best thing about it was that Pilipinas Mixed did really well against Team USA, which was unquestionably the strongest team there – they basically owned all their matches and ended up champions. Anyhoo, I’m mighty proud of Carpet Head and the rest of Team Pilipinas. They were all awesome.

I don’t want to turn this into a really long post, so I’m going to try to keep the descriptions short and just barrage you with a few photos, yeah? I didn’t take a lot of good photos though so bear with me. Hah. I know, I suck. ;)
