When I was in Coron with my family, we would shout ‘DIZZZ IZZZ BRAZIL’ when we arrived at some tourist sites. Copying and playing around with Dominic Torretto’s line in Fast & Furious was our way of saying that we really loved that site!
‘Travel Gratefully’ is a series of special or sponsored write ups that add more value and gratitude during my travels. The topics cover unique grateful experiences with specific people, things, places, and many others. For sponsored write ups, all are inspired by my experiences and nothing else. All posted articles are deemed worthy and in line with the main goal of this blog series which is to inspire MORE grateful travelling.
‘Irene, how do we travel directly from Boracay to El Nido or vice versa?’ This is usually the question I receive through email or social media from people I meet during backpacking trips when they are visiting the Philippines. As travelers, we always look for the most efficient routes to destinations we want to visit. And who wouldn’t want a direct transit from two of the best islands in the world, right?
I wanted to visit Aiyanar since the summer but could not find the time. Coincidentally, my sister was craving for a beach trip so I told my mom that we should celebrate her birthday there.
There’s a reason why Palawan was named the Best Island in the World by Conde Nast Traveler for 2 straight years. It truly is a paradise. Having just been to Coron the past month, my family has been blessed to experience gratefully the very best of Palawan in 2 straight months. Grateful for birthday travel months and cheap airfares!

I have been solo traveling since 2014 (all Asian countries) and it never entered my mind to travel solo in my own country because I usually prefer to travel with my family or friends. Until now. Until Batanes. What a first! What an amazing, amazing first! I will definitely go back!
For my 23rd birthday, my family booked a trip to CDO. This is the first province in Mindanao that we went to as a family. This was an adventure trip as it involves white water rafting and canyoneering! What an adrenaline rushed birthday! A truly grateful experience!
My friend and I went to Cebu for the famous Sinulog festival. As we had 5 full days in Cebu City, we decided to give one whole day for a Bohol trip.
