Batanes, one of the places to visit before you die…
… and it almost became our last place to visit. Hahaha.
Just got back today from Batanes after a 2-day photo safari courtesy of Epson Philippines (thanks to Markku!) and would really like to blog about our ‘very memorable’ Batanes experience (let’s just say that the The Boat is Sinking game is no fun for us anymore LOL) but we’re due to leave for Boracay tomorrow (hehe this is just a Manila layover :P) so that would have to take a back seat (but you’ll most likely read about it anyway from fellow bloggers who joined the trip). In the meantime, here are a few teaser photos:

at first i was happy to see you blog about batanes. doms & i were toying with the idea of having the prenups done there. pero after the incident, naku baka ayaw nyo na bumalik.
sige sa cubao na lang para malapit. hehe.
btw, photos are great, as always.

Oh my gosh Mimi and Karl, I loooove your shots! You really captured the beauty of Batanes. Looking at your pics made me even more excited for our trip there this coming holy week. I hope it won’t be our “last place to visit”. Chris and I have to at least make it to our wedding…which you guys will cover of course. Yipee!!! See you soon :o)

@ Tina, tara prenups tayo doon! Pero dapat this March or April na para calm waters 😛
@ Steph, I googled Bryan Peterson, saw his site, ang ganda ng photos nya! Thanks for that 🙂
@ Jenn, hindi naman ata siya antique 😛 Ang tanong ko, abot mo ba yung sahig pag ganyan bike mo? LOL
@ Triccie, Leah, go! Best times to go there is March daw sabi ng guide namin. We have our guide’s number, text nyo ko if you need it 🙂
@ Neva, oo natuloy rin! Alam mo bang yung original date for the trip was Jan 30-Feb 1? We passed on the opportunity kasi paano kung di kami makabalik ng Feb 1? 😉 Buti na lang naresked! 😀 Will we see you later here in Bora?
@ Ferdz, nice meeting you as well! And congrats sa atin nila Hana hahaha. Sana may mga succeeding trips pa tayo 🙂
@ Hana (the giant), totoo ba yan? Payag ka na? hehe
@ Nikki, marami pang times for you guys to go there 🙂 Congrats sa inyo ni Dan!! Yup I got you mail but di pa ko nakareply. We can do it first week of August 😉
