Surfviving in BALER

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Baler was not exactly on my 'Places-to-go-to' list but because of my good friend Yee, I couldn't pass out a Baler trip especially since her friend Vian was joining us, plus they were kind enough to allow me to tag along my sister, Gin on our BIG BALER ROAD TRIP! :)

BALER at last! 
Travelled for 13 hours that's supposedly 7 hours lang! (Note to self: if you are going on a road trip during Holy Week, expect SUPER GADUPER HEAVY TRAFFIC!)

I wasn't excited at all when I saw the overcrowded beach & the mediocre room. I thought that this, by far will be the most unexciting trips I'd have. But fortunately, I'm wrong...

black sand & lots of surfboard

We arrived at daybreak so there's nothing much to do but to have a few drinks at Bahia de Baler. A live reggae band played at night so it's nice to hang out here.

Gin & I had midnight dinner at Bay's Inn just along Bahia de Baler.

The next day, we had breakfast at Cafe Rosa

Tourist go here to SURF! So even if it's not exactly on my bucket list (never tried surfing & never planned on doing it!) I just couldn't  resist the adventure.

So here I am having a quick surfing lesson before riding on the waves! :p Surfing with instructor costs P350 per hour. If you are a beginner, it's good to have an instructor with you.

Gin's up for it!

Nice one!

My turn!

I was really proud of myself for getting up because I never thought I can survive! :) 

So I'm addicted! 

Surf's Up!

After our wave-trotting adventure. Had lunch at Bay-ler View, we have to eat plenty for our town day trip.

We trekked up Ditumabo Falls...

Then had an ethereal experience inside a Balete tree. It is said to be the oldest Balete tree in Asia.

To cap off our last night in Baler, #puchupuchu girls went out for a drink at Bay's Inn 
wearing our curly locks.

The next day, I tried surfing once more together with Yee.

Baler wasn't bad at all. I can honestly say that this was one of the fun-est trips I've had! Thank you #puchupuchu girls! Thank you Baler!
