Here’s another proof of my being a true-blue “kaladkarin”! That only means being a “real travel junkie” for those who don’t know the word hehe. While I have heard about these many island-towns in the Visayas, I have never yet gotten to fitting my itineraries with Sto. Nino and Almagro, Samar. By my rough estimate, I should be looking at these little paradises sometime in the year 2015 or 2016 still. But when opportunity knocks, I seldom let the door untended! So I went to see them, unplanned! How did this happen?
Over dinner at Café Elsa (Ciriaco Hotel, Calbayog City) with two good friends and their kids, wife mentioned in passing that husband was going out to the islands in the morning to do a whole day of oculars for an upcoming project. Boom! Itchy feet contacted brain to do a quick review of tomorrow’s intended itinerary for a possibility of some tweaks; heart readily picked the message so pulse-rate went fast; adrenalin rapidly pumped to the whole of my royal highness that instantly directed eyes and mouth to look at friend and ask “can I go with you?”. Ganun!
from Camotes and/or to Camotes, though this one is smaller, probably just about a third in size. Just family size really, not barangay size hehe!
And after about 45mins of sailing on wonderfully clear weather and waters, we arrived at the island-town of Sto. Nino, (Western)Samar. But, that’s my next story. Abangan…
