Go Camping

Granted, it's been raining for the past week every other day. But still, summer is the perfect time to go camping and enjoy the outdoors that we still have in abundance.

Granted, rv camping isn't really popular here as there aren't stations where you can dump waste in and get water from. But we do have a lot of low mountains (average 500 feet from sea level) which you can hike in two hours or so (and that's a slooooow trek already). Perfect for a late afternoon hike in time to catch the sun set, set up camp, have dinner (you can even bring pre-cooked ones), spend the night exchanging stories with only headlamps and the moon for light (because we all should practice LNT), wake up early to watch the sun rise, and be back in town before lunch.

We also have a lot of rivers, lakes and beaches where we can set up camp. Sea breeze as ventilation will work wonders on stressed souls. If you don't have a tent, some resorts can supply you with one for a minimal fee (Think Laiya and Puerto Galera). And because shorelines and communities mix, you can also just buy food from the locals. But still you get to camp and sleep with less of the trappings of civilization.

Just make sure you have lots of sunscreen with you.
