Ey doodes, sup! I am Ven, living life in the beautiful country of the Philippines! This is my third installment on our Cagayan Ilocos Trip! Today, we visited the Palaui Island in Sta. Ana Cagayan Valley Philippines and we discovered it's unique and stunning beauty. We also got the chance to see where Survivor Philippines was taken way back 2013. Thanks for coming with me!

This Cagayan getaway of ours just became quite unforgettable. See, I have been traveling since 2007 and call me lucky, but I have never experienced any flight cancellations. Well, not until last March 2 of this year. Me and the other passengers were already at the coaster waiting to be transferred to the plane when the ground crew was radioed to inform us that we will not be flying to our destination that day. Apparently, it was raining heavily in Tuguegarao.
How could you prepare for something impromptu like that? Good thing we always travel light and have no luggage checked in to retrieve ...
Perfect getaway for finding your soul.

After touring Cape Engano, our next stop was Siwangag Cove. Our boatman actually asked if we wanted to visit the place, we said yes because we thought we're already there so might as well explore everything. It took us around 30 minutes boat ride from Cape Engano to Siwangag Cove.
Sadly, nothing really was worth seeing at Siwangag Cove. There are lots of dead corals and hermit crab. We busied ourselves running after hermit crabs. Also, you can catch an estuary at Siwangag Cove.
After 15 minutes, we decided to leave Siwangag Cove and traveled to Crocodile Island. It's another 15 minutes b ...
