Philippines!

It’s been over five years when I was last home in Manila so I am just really glad to have finally been able to spend the Christmas holidays there. It was really nice being able to spend time with family and friends for a long overdue catch up. We had always wanted to visit these past years but our work and school schedules had always gotten in the way. But at last, we finally managed to squeeze in a three-week trip to the Philippines and I couldn’t be any happier. This was also the hubby’s first time to visit so I was very excited to show him around the country.  Despite the hassles we had with the long flights, the holiday chaos and delayed baggages, the sun warming our faces and just being able to frolic in flipflops have made every bump along the way worth it. It has been such a welcome change from the usual gray and bitter cold winter that we left in Denmark. Imagining everyone home freezing while we enjoy the white powdery sands and turquoise waters just couldn’t help me from feeling so decadent and delightfully guilty! It has been an amazing trip –  we had so much fun and we will be back sooner than later! :)

Another day, another beautiful sunset in Boracay island

Seafood – as fresh as it gets

How incredible that we chance upon Danish friends in this tiny island. Goofing around with the locals in the limobike :)

We could get used to this – our feet buried on the sand, butts plunked on bean bags, faint reggae music in the background as we enjoy a good meal served with ice cold beer and a view of the moonlit sea

Bamboo lanterns like this adorned the coconut trees at night
