I’ve been waking up to this stunning view since Friday and just staring at Cadlao Island brings me peace. I am staying at my dear friend D’s place which she is renting out for more than a month now. Her place is spartan, very much what you would expect from someone who decided to leave the cosmopolitan life behind to embark on a daring island life. But her place is a real winner.
It makes me feel like I really live in El Nido since there are no resort staff to take care of my needs and my movements are not calculated in relation to the sensibilities of other guests which I would normally consider when staying in a fancy accommodation. Here, it’s just me and Cadlao Island (since D’s always out diving anyway).
I can actually just stare at her beauty forever and do nothing but the rest of the 45 islands and islets that comprise the Bacuit Archipelago are hiding behind her, they need to be experienced as well.
Later, when I come back, I will be staring at her again and the world will be on a standstill.
