Two weeks ago, I went to Puerto Princesa City, Palawan for the second time. I got to see more of its wonders since I only spent practically a day touring it the last time I went there (we spent most of our time in El Nido).
You know what, God’s timing is always perfect. I am beyond stressed and overworked, so I needed this getaway to start my February with a bang. The four days I spent away from it all recharged my spirit, as I stand in awe of the beauty of God’s creations once more.
Through tricycle drivers, tourist guides, waiters, and locals, I again got to hear that sound of excitement and enthusiasm Palaweños have about their city. I discovered that there are no factories in Puerto Princesa, making nature safe and protected. It’s always lovely to visit this kind of city; one that doesn’t forget just how its natural beauty made it a popular and sought-after place for tourists to go to.
Let me dedicate my first blog post about my recent Palawan trip to these cute and awesome insects and animals I saw at the Butterfly Eco Garden and the Starfish Island of Honda Bay.
And… Different butterfly species!
I also tried to recreate one of the most memorable nights of my life by going to the Iwahig Firefly Watching and having dinner at Kinabuchs afterwards. Our boatman Jong captured one of the fireflies and my little sister got to touch it. Seeing it up close was exciting! It’s like an ant, but with a light. Too bad I didn’t take a picture of that wonderful moment.
Being close to nature truly gives you a richer perspective of life. I will always come back to see these beautiful creatures that don’t even know how inspiring they are.
