2010 Travelogue : Anawangin, Zambales. May 1-2
Who could have thought I’ll be able to visit my birthplace after being born? I’m a total stranger to where I first breathe my life to the world. I’ve been to many places but here – Zambales. I was too blissful to set foot on it’s sand and to set eyes on the beach resting beautifully on it’s perfect dwelling I couldn’t sleep before the day!
It was my first venture camping by the beach, mountain trudging with my swimsuit on (topped with striped dress), slippers (too bad I didn’t bring my hiking shoes) and a pouch bag (why the pouch bag, anyway?), getting up early in the morning to trail the mountain heights and sunbathing til there’s no sun to clothe you Tan. Whatta! Did I ever get the tan I like?
Camping is a great thing for me. It feels all great to just laze yourself inside the tent, on the sandy ground and feel the frostiness of the night. Waking up awaiting the heat of the sun thumping your tent while you still try to sleep yourself more (you can’t help but stay awake til dawn as you enjoyed the company of your friends talking some stuffs under the moonlight). And having breakfast by the beach is incomparable!
I conquered the heights! Yes! I did wander the mountain with my girlfriends and some boy-friends but I was left alone with the guys halfway. Too bad I was the only one who was so fervent to surmount the mountaintop and was left with all the guys. All girls rested and waited for us halfway. I didn’t mind, though. I was flabbergasted by the marvelous panorama of the paradise before my naked eyes when I was on top of the foothill! I found myself totally amazed of GOD’s creation of cosmos. I can’t believe I’ll see such a beautiful place in bird’s eye. Whoah! My heart was hurdling and throbbing so hard, I almost cried in wonderment. (emo mode)!
I wanna go back to this whereabouts again. Nonetheless, hoping the place will be upheld of it’s instinctive beauty and purity. I didn’t enjoy swimming much due to rubbish strewn on waters. Why can’t people be concerned of the nature? Why can’t they just be so considerate? I was saddened by the thought of people who care less.
My heart is pining for some love on nature – that we don’t only enjoy the beauty of the beaches and the nature but be part of its perpetuation so that our children’s children may still enjoy what we are enjoying now.
