We were in high spirits as we started exploring the North Batan, the prelude in our Batanes tour. Prior to this trip, I just could not contain the excitement that I had several sleepless nights imagining our close encounter with the rolling hills, the well-manicured grasses, the vast expansive view of the sea, and the lighthouses. I prayed that our three-day stay in the island province will promise a very memorable escapade considering our month of visit is January, a month where rain frequents Batanes.
It is a bliss beyond description to see a panorama of the rolling hills, rugged coastlines, undulating terrain and the overwhelming pristine beauty and cool and green surroundings. That’s how I felt when I set foot in Batanes. Dubbed as “Nature’s Playground”, this island province located in the northernmost part of the country affords a natural endowment that will torment you once you bid good-bye to her.
