    Sabtang Island, Batanes

    When we first set foot in Batanes, we really had no idea of what we would do in the province. And since we only have eight days to accomplish everything we could, we needed to come up with some sort of itinerary. We asked around and gathered some leaflets and flyers from travel agencies near our lodge which would serve as our reference. Because Batanes’ weather is so unpredictable, Rowjie and I thought that it’d be best to get done and over with Itbayat before anything else. We thought it’d better to be stuck in Basco while waiting for our flight back to Manila than be in Itbayat which is three hours away…

    When Rowjie and I arrived in Batanes, we had no definite itinerary and basically had no idea on what we could do around the province. We were staying there for eight days and I didn’t do enough research because we wanted to just go wherever our feet take us. Or maybe I was just too lazy. Anyway, the only thing we knew was it’s cold. And true enough, it was indeed freezing. Brrr. Winter in Batanes!
