Coron, Palawan🇵🇭 (Day 1)

For our Coron trip, we got it from a friend who recently started a travel agency – A + C Travel & Tours.

We avail the clark-coron-clark airfare, van transfer from airport to hotel to airport, and the hotel accomodation with free breakfast for ₽5,999 (3 days and 2 nights) and then we booked also our tour from A + C travel & tours for our day 2 for ₽1,300 all day tour in 7 islands in Coron with free lunch on the boat.

So we arrived in Clark at around 5 in the morning and then we just waited there for our flight at 9am.

When we finally got on the plane, travel time was around 45-50 mins only, our plane was small, it’s a little bit different because when I’m traveling to Rome it was so big, this one was a bit small and cute because it’s a domestic flight only, our airline was Philippine Airlines.

Also I forgot to check in us online the day before our flight that’s why we’re not beside each other.

And the snacks was great😄 (PAL was in partners with Max’s for their snacks😊)

Then we arrived at the Busuanga Airport in Coron, Palawan.

Then around 15 mins. drive I guess before we reach our hotel.

Here’s the hotel we stayed-in, also it was already arranged by Ms. Chenny Ann Tan, owner of the A + C Travel & Tours 👍🏻

After checking in we decided to have lunch outside and also to buy some of tissues and snacks.

Here’s a little story of us touring around the city in a wrong way😅

We told the tricycle driver to bring us in a supermarket or a grocery store in there, then he ask if we want the old or new, we say new, then he started driving and then we reach the town proper but he still continues to drive, until we reach the shore and suddenly approaching us was a sign of “Coron Public Market” 😅 it was literally a market with the meats in there and fishes and all😂 we won’t be buying foods like that but we are already there so we went in and check if there was something we could still buy, luckily we spotted a stall which is like a sari-sari store so we ended up buying a bottled of water and some biscuits and snacks then we ride again the tricycle going back to the city.

And finally the driver understands us this time, and finally we saw a restaurant near where the driver left us, so we had our lunch there.

The restaurant was Big Mama’s Pinoy Hot Pot & Grill.

The food was great, the marinade of the chicken and the pork was great because we both ordered a grilled and we are both satisfied with our lunch then our drinks was apple shake for me and fresh buko juice for him, the food was around ₽300-400.

After eating our lunch we just walked around the city, and in there they have many souvenir shops, restaurants and hotels and many more.

After a while we go back to our hotel and we decided to have our first tour, they have many options there if what tour you want, in our hotel they have a fliers so that we can choose what we want, since it’s already close to night time we take the night tour. We just texted the number in the fliers and then we prepared after a while.

1st Tour (Night Tour) — 950

📍Pang-eat Firefly Floating Resto (Dinner)

📍Mangrove Forest Park (See colonies of Fireflies)

First there was a van that picked us up in the hotel and then brought us near the shore again it was also near our first stop a while ago the Public Market😄

The tour starts at 6 in the evening then it ended at around 9.

We ride a speedboat and there were around 16 of us in one boat I guess, there are 2 boats, so we went to the floating restaurant first (the capacity of the resto was good for the all the people in two boats) and have our seafood buffet dinner, the food was delicious especially the pasta😋 and everything was really seafood👌🏻

Also eating in a floating restaurant was so fun, you will really feel that you are floating and the air was refreshing plus the grandpa’s who was singing so beautifully that makes the whole dinner so relaxing and so nice!!!

After all the great experience in the floating restaurant our next stop was the Fireflies!✨

Because the fireflies was so sensitive our tour guide said to us to turn down the lights of our cellphone and no flashing of lights so that we can really see the fireflies, so I didn’t get a chance to capture them we just enjoy the night watching the fireflies and the relaxing fresh air.

I did try to take a picture and a video on a low light of my phone although I cannot see it clearly and after the tour I checked it but it was all just black and nothing else so I just deleted it.

All in all our first tour for our day 1 was so nice and it was really a delightful night!

Circus Maximus, Giardino degli Aranci, Colosseo, Catacomb of Callixtus (Rome, Italy)🇮🇹

This is super duper late post actually😅 this should be posted last year but I don’t have much time to post because I really enjoy going everywhere in Rome, Italy that time!❤️

Still it was a good vacation so I’ll share it with you.

Whenever you want to go to Italy, this places are also good place to visit!👍🏻🇮🇹

  • Circus Maximus

– it is an ancient Roman chariot racing stadium and mass entertainment venue in Rome it is near Colosseo and it is between the Aventine and Palatine hills.

  • Giardino degli Aranci

– it is near Giardino delle Rose, I went there last time when it was summer time it was also a beautiful garden full of different flowers, this giardino degli Aranci is more of a park with a great view

  • Colosseo

– Colosseo again and again, everytime you’ll go here you will always be amaze of it and still want to have a picture with it because of its beautiful structure, unluckily I still didn’t get to go inside. Somedaaaay😊

After that we got hungry so we need to eat, I brought him to my fave restaurant in Rome, 100 montaditos.

After eating our friends followed us and we decided to go to Catacomb of Callixtus (a little far from the city)

  • Catacomb of Callixtus

– its is one of the Catacombs in Rome, mostly it contains the Crypt of the Popes. It opens at 9 am and closes at 5 in the afternoon, luckily we arrived there at around 4 in the afternoon, we still have time to roam around(little time hahaha)

But it was a beautiful place especially because of different tress there.

After that since my boyfriends house is near here we decided to eat dinner at his house😊

After that he accompany us going home.
