In Batanes at Last

The years of hope to visit Batanes materialized in 19-23 May '09. The trip was concocted by Karen and Shawie, i was so glad they thought about it. Thanks to Ferdz Decena's blog and advice we were not lost with our choices. It seemed like it was a destined trip anyway. Even if the minimum persons for a tour group is 4, Shanedel's still accepted just 3. Our guide, Manny Merida, is also very generous that he even offered to buy us coconut crab for our last dinner, which is definitely cheaper outside than at the restaurants. (for better photos:
