It was several months ago since the last day I stopped working at the hospital but that doesn’t mean that we have to stop talking to each other. We still do. We weren’t only co- workers. We’re all friends. The idea that we have been planning for a long time finally came true: to go to Guimaras, make new adventures and memories.
First stop is this new inland resort called Woodland. We placed our bags in a hut we rented for the night. It looks like a small bahay kubo with a rest room and electricity. The place was huge! It doesn’t have a beach but it has two pools, a restaurant, a mango farm, a bike trail, and lots of space to roam around.
It also has a fish spa pond. We tried that first before we ate our lunch. The pool was so inviting but we have to go to another resort to do island hopping! It wasn’t my first time in Guimaras but the places we went to, I have never been there before so it was really exciting for me.
Off to another resort. We were greeted by warm wind and sparkling waters as we head over to the boat. We stopped at some of the islands. Went inside a cave, played with white sand on a tiny island with a sandbar, and happy conversations in between while riding on a small boat.
One of the highlight of the day was the cliff diving. I was too scared to try so I offered to take photos and videos of them jumping instead. I wish I did though. Maybe someday. This was funny because the person who is the most excited to do this is the last one to jump because of fear. Well, at least she jumped! 🙂
We went to another resort after the boat ride. It was beautiful too but it’s not as developed as the others yet. We took photos instead. We didn’t bring any snacks or even water and we were famished. The sun was about to set too so we headed back to Woodland. We had fun swimming at the pool, and going on slides like little kids. We had the pool to ourselves, it was dark and was drizzling but we had a great time. Sadly we had to say goodbye to some because they still have work.
We spent the rest of the night drinking, playing monopoly and laughing non stop at some of the photos we took and memories we relieved. We slept with smiles in our faces. It’s time to part the next day and it was bittersweet. We don’t know when we’ll see each other again but for sure, there’s gonna be a next time. Where? Who knows? Maybe it’s in the mountains. Maybe the sea again. As long as we’re together.
