I can’t remember ever being this desperate for a holiday because I was always busy and loved working as much as I can and always felt guilty taking time off.
Now that I’m older and perhaps a little wiser, I can appreciate dedicating a few days for myself for my well-being to focus on having balance for the months ahead. For me, that means reading books, swimming in the sea, brainstorming new ideas, and no heels.
Last summer, we went on a spontaneous trip to Pangasinan after visiting Baguio City with my family. Spontaneous because we didn’t actually plan it, we passed on it on our way home and we decided, why not spend a night and a day on this coastal province. This trip was fun in many ways, it was my moms’ birthday and as well as a perfect time to refresh from all the responsibilities.
There is nothing more different than what the east and west look like. It is also humid but windy, mostly because of the wind, but alongside the sea side that’s what I love the most about it. This amount of wind allowed us to have (most of the time) great sunny weather, we waited for the sunset and it was gorgeous. The beach? It might not be as fancy as Hawaii or the Bahamas or even Cannes or St. Tropez but who needs fancy when you have a gorgeous scenery, great family, and wine? Though it is not as white as other beaches around the world, but there is something so intimidating and fascinating about a rough grey water, something you don’t get with crystal clear water… Nevertheless, I love it. It is so soothing and calming.

How about you? what does a holiday mean to you and how do you spend your break? It’s been so lovely hearing more from all of you and I’m feeling more connected than ever.
