Love for the stars! Adventures with dearest officemates at Potipot! My lunch buddies and I were all drained out and we want to escape to the beach. Our work has been killing us and our boss is making our lives crazy because of his attitude. We may have our company outing at one of the displayed hot springs somewhere in Laguna but for sure we still need to follow his rules, and which I think it is crazy. Who would want to work with a nazi boss in this crappy company after all? Being hungry hippies that we are, we think of getting away from the stressful workload and have a perfect vacation for us. And so it's decided that we need to have a vacation somewhere outside the metro, with crispy blue waters, white sand beach, tall trees in a secluded island hundred miles away from the city. No internet, no cellphone lines, no crazy work and no crazy boss (lol!) it'll be a perfect getaway for all of us who wants to destress and get in touch with nature again. Me and other lunch mate Bill searched for possible getaway destinations that has the things that we are searching for. We checked on blogs, travel sites and we saw this site about the majestic Potipot island located in Iba, Zambales. A close friend of mine who already went there told me how enchanting and hidden the island is, and she even told me that I need to check the majestic view of sunset at the far end of the island. I told my lunch buddies about this and we decided that we're going to see Potipot in the next few days!
The next thing that we did is to searched for travel companies that offer discounts by bulk. We were 7 of us and this overnight travel deal to Potipot island from Metrodeal is the best option for us! I discussed this deal with my lunch buddies, agreed to have a group purchase and buy the voucher on Metrodeal. So we availed on the vouchers, fixed our schedule and we are off to Zambales. We out of Makati at around 7 in the morning and we arrived at around 12 in the afternoon. As we arrived to Dawal beach
resort, we waited for the boat ride going there. And as the boat arrived going our destination, I was anxious as we make our way to the island.
Looking at Potipot is a love at first sight. Never did I thought that it'll be like Boracay â€“ but only secluded. Powdery white sand beach, pristine clear waters, trees at the middle part of the island and I can see live fishes and starfishes nearby! It was |refreshing and all we did while we were there was to have enjoy and own the whole beach. And as the sun sets we went to the far end of the island. I was teary-eyed as I cant help myself to fall for the beauty of the island untouched by people. It was indeed beautiful. Since we also availed on the food add-ons posted on the Metrodeal discount voucher, we can't help but to devour the huge feast in front of us. After the dinner feast we set up the tents and we stargaze as we fall to sleep. It was a relaxing sleep under the stars and I woke up just before the sun rises. I went out on a run (on barefoot) around the island and I cant help but to love the island's beauty. The island was indeed small, but it's a beautiful treasure island tucked away from the busy metropolis. As my friends woke up we decided to make a quick swim while we are waiting for our breakfast to come. We love it here! And I would love to come back for Potipot again! Metrodeal has been a great friend to me for offering this amazingly budget-friendly deal to us, thanks again!
