Batanes Deserves Me!

If only "good looks" can bring me to Batanes, I would definitely use mine. Wahahaha!!! Kidding aside, a Batanes trip has always been haunting me in my dreams. Without a doubt, I will do everything just to see and be able to set my "happy feet" in this awesome province.

I want to witness breath taking views of the beaches, lighthouses, hills, churches, and stone houses. I also want to meet the warm and gentle Ivatans. Feel the nice weather and to relax and have a time of my life. Needless to say, nothing can beat a natural high when you see a beautiful place such as Batanes.

I want to hike up Naidi Hills to see the Basco Lighthouse, like what I did in Guimaras where I saw the Guisi Light House in the town of Guisi. I want to share to everyone how majestic lighthouses are.

I want to explore Rakuh-a-Idi Spring and compare it to Mambukal Resort in Murcia Negros Occidental.

Been to a WWII Japanese tunnel in Albay, too bad I was not able to get in, this time, I want get inside the Dipnaysupuan Japanese Tunnel.

I also want to see the churches in Batanes and feel the same admiration I felt when I visited the stunning Miagao Church in Iloilo.

I've been to Bohol's famous Chocolate Hills and seen different views from the top of the mountains, I also want to see the vast stretch of hills that look like rolling waves of the ocean of the Vayang Rolling Hills and the beautiful landscapes and seascapes it offers. Also the beautiful ocean, and witness a spectacular sunset.

Mt. Batulao, Nasugbu Batangas

I want to swim in the waters of Nakabuang Beach, like what I did in the white sand beaches of Quezon, Puerto Galera, Anawangin and Guimaras.

I've been chased by a carabao on the summit of Mt. Gulugod baboy, I want to see cows and carabaos on the hills of Rakuh-a-Payaman.

Been to "The Ruins" in Talisay City Negros Occidental, I also want to see the Songsong Ruins.

Done island hopping in Puerto Galera, Guimaras and Anilao, I also want to explore the islands of Sabtang and Itbayat.

Walked in the old streets of Vigan and Silay City, I want to see the oldest house in Batanes - Vahay ni Dakay (House of Dakay) and meet Lola Ida.

Indeed there are a lot of things to discover in Batanes. I'm afraid this dream will never be a reality. Should I just keep on dreaming? *sigh*

Been checking out SEAIR's website hoping that I could avail a ticket going to Batanes, unfortunately, my resources are not enough. I'm glad that they have this contest that somehow gives me an opportunity to fly to Batanes. I want to be there because the lovely Batanes deserves a blogger as charming as Pinoy Adventurista. *wink*

This will be a big help in achieving my personal challenge of being able to set foot on at least two-thirds of the Philippine provinces before I reach the age of 35. Hope you could help me achieve my dream of flying to Batanes by “liking” my entry at SEAIR’s Facebook Fan Page. Thanks a lot!
