|We took Skyjet to Batanes, from what I heard it has one flight for Monday, Wednesday, |
Friday and Sunday going to and from Batanes. Here I am seated below the economy class.
We got the tickets for 14k at an expo.
A m b o y H o m e t e lThe first time I heard the term hometel, catchy!
|Booking at Amboy Hotel came with a service ride, |
this is me seated with the check-in luggage.
The hotel reservation and guided tour also included breakfast and lunch.
Everything cost around less than 8k
|The room is fully furnished!!! It was quite surprising and not what I originally expected. |
Good service and a nice place to stay, I highly recommend it.
|The room is air-conditioned and comes with a ceiling fan, fascinating.|
|The hometel's facade, newly developed definitely an eye catcher|
|The rocky beach is just across the road in front of the hometel|
There are other places to swim in which is more elegant than the beach at the hometel front
I advise you to choose another location
|First breath taking view I saw; Vayang Rolling Hills is awesome indeed|
First picturesqueness of me with the rolling hills
|Just like any other attempt, I do suck at timing a jump shot|
|Chamantad-Tinian Viewpoint; awwwww amateur shot doesn't really capture |
the grandness of Batanes, go see it for yourselves
|This picture of me at Racuh-a-payaman or Marlboro country doesn't |
bring justice to the place :)) I love observing nature while lying on green grass
|Oh well the photographer might still be drunk, this is Simbahan ng Basco|
|My friend Serena doing a cartwheel in front of|
the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Chapel
|This is a miniature replica of the Simbahan ng Mahatao|
Rene went on to have an Attack on Titan pictorial here
Poor little old me, I ended up being the food for the titan
|The church has a blank book library where you can write your wishes on|
a blank page of a book.
I wished for world peace "like a boss" and drew doodles of ugly dolls and what not.
|I climbed up the Basco lighthouse and it taught me a very important lesson|
Never ever climb a light house again
|It may look the same but the Tayid Lighthouse gave us the needed rest and|
time to sit, chat and relax by the viewpoint
|They really love their chit-chats, them Pointwest people|
|I found a Sunshine Recorder at Basco PAGASA complex and played around with it.|
I turned the instrument into the ever seeing eye of Turny Burny, my precious
|Not much photos were taken inside the dark reconstructed Japanese tunnels|
but I managed to take a picture of the bright exit; glad the spelunking was over.
|The Traditional Vernacular Houses at the UNICEF nominated town|
|Another jump shot attempt that resulted to a fail, yup the roof is that thick|
and yeah I fell down a drainage
|Took this from the hometel's beach front, the smoke streak at the left|
adds flavor to the sunset at the middle, ten!
|Spent some time sitting at the Valugan Boulder Beach|
|Until I managed to screw it up by a boulder misstep|
trapped! help me...
|The visit to the white beach is one of my favorite!|
|Mahatao Chawa is one scary place, the waves were unpredictable|
Glad that everyone was safe

|I visited and met the owner of the honesty coffee shop, |
she was kind and warm hearted; and I was so darn honest
|We brought in Korean Rice wine at Batanes for our after tour sessions|
|Coconut Crabs are a specialty and are a delight|
|One restaurant that serves great food is Fundacion (Fundathion) Pacita|
