I always thought of Puerto Galera as an overrated tourist destination. But goddamn, one afternoon as I was playing in the water, I got shook. I caught myself falling in love with this place.

It’s been two weeks since that birthday weekend, and I can’t wait to go back. Let’s dig deep into the recesses of my overthinking mind and try to spin a tale of what went down.
Prepare yourself for a long blog post.
