I am currently typing this with a loud party music background. Lately, I've been feeling nostalgic because I want summer to take me back. It was last April when we had our family adventures and our first summer getaway is in Garin Farm, San Joaquin, Iloilo together with my family in father's side. That was an unplanned one day adventure. We stroll around the farm and took pictures, ofcourse. Then, we took that 456 stairs towards the Divine Mercy Cross. I feel blessed when I finally took my last step to the peek of the stairs. After that, we went boating around their man-made lagoon. The kid in me was unleashed at that very moment. There's no such dull moments when you"re with your family.

Next getaway is in Hurom-Hurom Cold Spring, Nabas Aklan. The place is pretty awesome and natural because the water is directly coming from the mountain. It feels like dipping in an ice cold water. Relaxing. That time, we spent a one-day adventure with my family in mother's side. But our day didn't end there...

After that stay in Hurom-Hurom, we decided to pass by a well-known falls in Aklan. We checked-out the place, ate some snacks, took some photos and had a mini hiking. Oh, I love nature. We didn't stayed too long because we need to go and find a resort to stay the night.

Here's a short not-so-funny but I find it funny scenario. We had a hard time searching for a nice resort to stay in. After a couple hours of searching we found this little beach resort in Culasi, Antique. Finally! It's a great day but exhausting, so we deserve a comfortable place to sleep. We checked-in at around 11:00 PM already. We occupied three fully air-conditioned rooms because we're 30 people, obviously we won't fit in just one small room. We're all ready to sleep when we noticed that the air-con won't work if  we switch on the lights. Unfortunately, the resort is having a power shortage. Our elders gave their complaints to the management. My Uncle told them that we will pay half the price because of their poor service. They agreed. The next day, we woke up early to have a quick dip in the beach. Guess what? My family is the resort's one and only customer for the day. WE OWN THE BEACH. The resort's management gave us a special treatment that day because of their poor service during our night stay there. They built us a tent along the beach so we could have a family picnic there. It was amazing though. I find it really awkward but yes, that was an a great one-day unplanned family adventure.

Last stop. This is a family trip in my father's side. We stayed there over night. It is my first time to go there and I wanna go back now. It's a ll natural. The caves, beaches, islands and their food. That night we're the only group of customers who stayed there. AND YES WE OWNED THE ISLAND. Our first activity is island hopping in six main Islands. I forgot the Island names but it's amazing, Dearies. We had our first swim in a hidden lagoon called "Tangke" because there's a story that it was the bath tum of the Giants or Gigantes. Then, we ate our packed lunch in a mini island. After that, we went to another island and tried their specialty shells. It tastes like talaba. We took our last swimming in the next Island called "Antonia Beach". After a long adventurous day, we headed to our hotel and had crabs for dinner. That was a great experience for me before I finally settled here in Qatar. I'm a pro nostalgic. Take me back oh summer!
