I’m officially back from my beach vacation after spending almost a week in Caramoan.
While most of my friends are enjoying #Laboracay, I’m down east in Camarines Sur and island hopping in this beach paradise.
Honestly, the photo above does not capture the whole beauty of the place.
And it’s really hard to describe the experience of actually being there.
However, let me share with you how it was going there.
Because I believe it’s important for you to know what you’re up against if you decide to visit this fascinating place.
Me and my friends drove all the way to Bicol, which required almost 10 hours of driving.
We left around midnight…
… and arrived in Camarines Sur around noon.
Since it was my car, I was behind the wheel most of the time.
When we arrived at Sabang Port, San Jose, we left the car in a secure parking space and took a ferry.
I took this shot just before going on board.
The ferry was an uncomfortable 2-hour ride as seating is cramped, the engine was noisy and it reeked of oil and gasoline.
I was asleep most of the time at the boat – tired from all the driving or intoxicated by the carbon monoxide from the pump, I don’t know.
What I do know is that my legs fell asleep first before I did.
Finally, we docked at Guijalo Port and then had a bumpy 15-minute tricycle ride going to the resort inn.
After checking-in, we wasted no time and immediately went to Bikal port, where we took a smaller pump boat for our island hopping.
The boat ride was almost an hour, but you won’t notice the time as the beauty of the Caramoan Islands will surely capture your attention.
And after more than 14 hours of travel, all the discomfort and exhaustion we felt begin to fade away. My friends and I agreed that it was all worth it.
Financial freedom is not an easy destination.
Just like our trip to Caramoan, it’s a long and tiring journey which will test your patience and perseverance.
Many will choose not to go to Caramoan because they don’t want to go through all the trouble and discomfort of reaching this beautiful place.
But it is worth it… as it is with reaching your financial freedom.
Plan and go on your journey and experience what most people simply dream of.
Financial freedom is a trip you’re meant to take. Leave now and don’t miss the boat.
