Wanderlust Wednesday ish #1 Philippines

Hey guys,

So the two things I love is discovering new places and food so I have decided to do 2 weekly posts along with regular Barcelona/Fashion/Wellbeing Tips for my blog.

1. Wanderlust Wednesday: Blogging on places I want to go.
2. Stuff My Face Saturday: where I devour Barcelona's food!

I know it's not Wednesday yesterday I slept all evening after work I was knackered! Plus Monday we had a public holiday here in Spain, so technically this my third day at work this wee which usually would be a Wednesday! So the first place up for my first ever Wanderlust Wednesday is.... the Philippines!






First thing that comes to mind when I think of the Philippines is beaches! An Island country in the South East Asia and consists of 7,641 islands this obviously offers a great amount of views for all travellers visiting this amazing place! I know a lot of people who have gone to the Philippines and their photos look amazing, so here I will list the places that I need to visit!

1. Kayangan Lake


Located on Coron Island, it is one of the main attractions that visitors explore. It is accessible by a 10 minute steep climb, for me that's great because I love fitness especially if you are going to be rewarded by a swim here! I love swimming, I used to swim for my region in the UK but had to give it up because I unfortunately got ill so I love any opportunity I get to swim! Look at those crystal clear waters! You are also embedded within the mountain walls and with wooden boardwalks this is my idea of heaven! If I could I would live here, it looks so peaceful and relaxing!


2. Batad Rice Terraces


One of the many pictures I see from my friends that have been to the Philippines is the rice fields and they always look so beautiful and its a change from being on the beach! Known as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Batad is known for its amazing Rice Terraces. Rice Terraces are also known as the 8th Wonder of the World and I can see why! Look at the landscape!


3. Small Lagoon - El Nido


I am a massive fan of Lagoons, I have been to the Blue Lagoon in Olu Deniz and I need to go to the one in Iceland and here! Surrounded by beautiful landscapes who wouldn't want to be here and swim here?!


4. Tumalog Falls


I am a massive fan of waterfalls, I thin they are so pretty and I am obsessed with them! Located in a place with an amazing name, Oslob, apparently the entrance fee is 20 (whatever the currency is in the Philippines) but come on it must be worth it! I would definitely spend that to swim here and apparently for those adrenaline junkies you're not too far from the whaleshark watching point!


5. Panglao Island


Finishing it off with a beach obviously! The bright sand, kayaks and clear and deep blue water, this island is definitely on my to visit list! With a mixture of terrain from flat to mountains and limestone in the area its an island worth visiting.

Anyone else want to go to the Philippines or have been to it??
