Camiguin Island

Adrenaline ran high when we were reading about this place. It seemed that all the landscape elements were present in this little island. After having spent 3 days on that tiny patch of land, the jury is still out on whether this place is a must-see or not. Some say that we should've gone up one of the dormant volcanoes for a better view of the place. Or maybe the fishing village that we were supposed to visit would've been "the bomb", so to speak. Perhaps we should've looked at this place from a vacationing person's perspective rather than behind the viewfinder.

Or... Maybe... Perhaps...

But as a friend of ours said, "Camiguin is what you make of it". And on that note, we did make something out of it. We brought home a lot of pretty pictures. But personally, only a couple spoke to me, and ever so faintly, if I might add.

On the flipside of things, it somehow reminded me that Camiguin, as a photographic destination is the "worst" that the Philippines can ever get. That thought made me smile as I realized that there's no such thing as a disappointing trip in any of these 7,107 islands.

Going through these islands is like watching a beauty pageant. No one's really ugly. There's just pretty. And prettier :)

Enjoy :)
