Girls Weekend Getaway: Bantayan Island, Cebu

bantayan island

I flew out to Cebu the other weekend to hang out with my girlfriends for our “not always annual but we try” annual girls weekend getaway. We went to Bantayan Island, which has one of the most gorgeous beaches in the country (and the world!).

The weekend was a blast, as usual. You know how it is when you meet up with your long time friends, right? Anytime you get together it’s pretty much all laughs and crazy antics. And we were all due for some much-needed girl time and beach fix, so it was a great vacay from our usual lives.

Girls Weekend Getaway: Camiguin

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.

Girls Weekend Getaway: Puerto Princesa

It was time for the annual girls’ getaway with my soul sisters! Last year we braved August winds and rain in Boracay. The year before that we were in Cebu City. This year we went to Puerto Princesa in Palawan! It was yet another weekend of shrieky head-thrown-back laughter, crazy antics and awesome girl moments. We missed a couple of our mommy friends though because they had to stay home to tend to family stuff.
