All set for the weekend

Planning this trip with Ralei and my siblings was not the greatest thing, but hey! We made it..

Ralei is on an earlier flight so she head on out to El Nido hours ahead of us and will just be meeting her in the hotel.

It is a nice day with the blue sky! I need a wink since I came straight off from work on a night shift but I just can't. I am exhausted but I'm too excited to sleep. It's been years since my first glimpse of El Nido and I can't help but compare the difference. While it is still a long drive from Puerto Princesa, the roads now are in a better condition and transportation to and from are available at most hours unlike years ago. The traveling time were cut a few hours shorter than before and it felt less remote.

For hours, endless coconut trees and various plants was all we can see. Until finally, we get closer to our destination and we can now see some water.

We arrived late in the evening..

And the bed is soooo inviting! But then we need some real food after all those hours in the road left us hungry. In our efforts to find food, we ended up here in IslandFront restaurant.

It is nestled by the shore, a quiet place with just the sound of the water kissing the shore in the background. Looks like people are scarce at this time of the night. We then settled in one of the candlelit tables near the beachfront, near enough to taste the saltiness in the air and hear the waves. We ate heartily and cap the night back in our rooms.

Now, off we go to dreamland! Bonne nuit! ~ ♥A
