Day 04 - What you imagine paradise to be like
I took these photos last April 2007 when my family and I went to Carrascal in Surigao del Sur, which is my Grandma’s hometown. It’s basically a small town and the people there have the simplest type of life you can imagine. It took us around 10 hours to get to Carrascal from Cagayan de Oro by car. It was such a long ride but all I can remember was how much fun I had with my cousins and siblings while in the car.
The beaches there are absolutely breathtaking. My words won’t give its beauty any justice - you have to see it for yourself. The waters are so clear and the sand, so fine and white. I would consider it paradise because we were the only ones there and it felt like time was moving so slow and all we had was the sun, the sand, the blue waters, the incredibly fresh and delicious seafood, and each other’s company.
I know this place is nothing compared to Heaven, which to me is the ultimate paradise, but Carrascal would definitely do while I’m still here on earth. I miss it already!
Highlight of my Cebu trip, the babies, of course. I miss you, Izzy and Gavin!
Worst part of my trip, the crappy and most horrific flight of my entire life, courtesy of Cebu Pacific. Never riding the plane ever again.
Yes, I do. I know for sure my schedule will be filled! There’s so much to do in New York. How could I ever get bored?
