Bantayan Island 2015


Last May, our unit decided to have a summer outing in this very beautiful island of Bantayan. It was my first to be there and I was so excited for the trip.

The original plan was for us to have an overnight stay. Unfortunately, because I knew for sure I wont be allowed by my mama to sleep somewhere else (especially with Michael around), we had it just a one day trip. 😦 (Thank you guys for compromising.)

On our way.

It was still wee hours in the morning when we left for Bantayan. All of us were very sleepy as some of us just had a duty the night before and with the fact that it was really very early.

We picked up one by one our friends as we got near their place. Michael fetched me first from our house, then we went to Mam Tin’s. Next was in this order: Rey– Gladys and Kame–Step– Jayson and Niel– Nova.



It was ____ hour drive to get to Sta. Fe Port. The road was dark. I should say it was a dangerous drive as we got to drive by fast-moving big buses and trucks. I imagine dump trucks should be driving slow but they’re not; it was like they’re in a race or something. Michael was really sleepy while driving but he dared not to stop by because he wanted us to get to the port fast and make it to the boat first trip to the island. He said he was constantly pinching his legs to keep him awake. He added that if it was not a time I tapped him in the back that we could have had an accident because he completely snoozed for a moment. But really, really Thank God we’re safe.

When we arrived at the port, the first trip vessel had already departed. So while waiting, we had our painit, morning eat with hot drink.


Now, it was not a smooth ride for all of us. Our fellow Kame here was….. And that brought us to the island’s local hospital. To mkae use of time, Michael and I, with Niel, were tasked to go to the market for our food. It was fun. And it was hot.

It really amazes me to ride on different public vehicles from different places, like this one. It’s run by a motorcycle and just look at the modification. This can load up to 10-12 passengers. Brilliant!

Swimming time!!

The resort got a cave. Too bad there were a lot of people in the cave so I was not able to go inside.

Look and feel and enjoy the picture view. Wow! So wow!

But, I think next tie we should planning the timing of our trip as we always get to have low tides. The sea waters not favoring us.

queing for the boat…
