Dahican, Again!

I don’t feel so good about myself, and I don’t think my body likes me much. The brain hasn't really been active at night but I'm still fazed how its idleness can still keep me awake at night. I haven't had enough sleep daily for the past month. This isn't new. And usually, when this happens, a quick beach getaway "fixes" everything.

I remember back then when Jan and I needed a detox,  we would just hop on the boat and sail away for 45 minutes to Isla Reta. We would sleep in a tent, cook our own breakfast, set up our hammock, play the ukulele, do nothing, and forget about everything else. It was our go-to weekend getaway place. But it took just one unpleasant experience from the staff and we haven't returned there ever since.

Our random weekend getaways now are not as frequent but have become more interesting. Because, road trips.

Going to Mati takes a tedious 4 to 5-hour bus ride. But now, it feels like it's just within arm's reach. We've been frequenting Dahican lately. And last weekend, it was the first time Jan and I went on a road trip with no one else. Just the two of us.

Roadtrip to Mati, Davao Oriental

When Jan took me to Dahican beach in 2015, I fell in love with it instantly. Despite being in world-class beaches like PanglaoBoracay, and El Nido, Dahican is still - and I guess, will always be - my favorite.

We did the usual things we do at the beach. You know, not do anything but still have the best time of our lives.

It doesn't get any better than this.

Don't believe in everything you see on social media
Dahican Beach, Mati
Because I really did not read this. Haha. The beach is such a beautiful distraction.

I've been going back and forth Dahican and I think it's about time that I should really learn how to surf.

The end of Lenten season marks the start of summer and we've already made three beach getaways. So here's to more beaches and road trips to come. :)
