Trending Now: Batanes – Days 2 & 3

And my Batanes adventure / photo diary continues! This is days two and three and yes, I was freezing my butt off in most of these photos. We weren’t able to shoot much at Rakuh-A-Payaman (better known as Marlboro Country) on day one, so we went back the next day. Thankfully, it was sunny that day, which made it a little easier to bear the cold.

img_2012This “dress” got a lot of compliments on Instagram. Just to let you know, this isn’t actually a dress, but a top and skirt. It looks so good together! The tank top is from GUESS Jeans, and the printed skirt is from Cocotini (available soon on http://www.pormada.com), leather sandals are from Dolce Vita (available at SM Shoe Department), and the rose gold watch is from Marc Coblen.

Next stop: Basco Lighthouse in Naidi Hills. This offered an amazing sunset view!

IMG_9137Love this!

IMG_2060Very near the Basco Lighthouse is Bunker’s Cafe Restaurant. This was an American bunker during World War II, and now it is a restaurant that serves Ivatan and Tagalog cuisine.

IMG_2069We arrived here early so I could do my spiels. The restaurant was still closed (it opens at around 5pm) but I couldn’t resist posing against these pretty blue shutters.

IMG_2117Another must-see destination in Batanes: Nakaboang Beach, Ark and Cave. This is located at Sabtang Island, a 30-minute boat ride away from the city proper.

IMG_2141This made a great backdrop for my spiels.

IMG_2205Taken in between shoots. Apparently, this ark is a good place to hide from the sun.

IMG_2253The best way to travel around Batanes: riding a bicycle!

IMG_2267This was so fun. Its a great way to see the sights and get a workout.

IMG_2228This is in Basco, very near Fundacion Pacita Batanes Nature Lodge, one of the best places to stay when in Batanes.

IMG_2243Beautiful Batanes.

IMG_2239You can’t beat this view.

IMG_2285You can’t miss this: Valugan Boulder Beach! This beach is just so picturesque!

IMG_2295Three happy kids playing on the beach.

IMG_2332They are so happy!

Thank you for this wonderful trip, Batanes.
