Burot Beach, Calatagan, Batangas
(a super late post)
After months of stressful life, I finally had a chance to take a break from everything that hurts. The trip was not perfect but it was a blessing for me. It was my first time to have overcome my fear of the ocean—its sheer depth and vastness. It was such a nice feeling to let go and just let my guards down while swimming in the deep part of the ocean without a vest on. Best feeling ever. I’ve also learned how to set up tents which was amazingly easy. Camping requires a lot of work but it was fun.
This was also my first trip with my workmates. It was really tiring since we didn’t get to sleep at all, plus the weather was just so hot all throughout our stay. But that didn’t stop us from having fun. I still enjoyed every part of it, well except for that moment where I got a splinter in my foot. All in all, I loved it, especially the star gazing moment where we were just there lying on the sand, pointing with joy and delight at every shooting star we get to see. “And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.” It was pure bliss.
Burot Beach is a nice place to unwind and to have fun with your friends and loved ones. Just don’t expect too much because there’s no electricity in the area and the bathrooms are limited. But other than that, all is well. Just bring all the things you need with you when you go camping and you’ll survive. :)
