The Visit Davao Fun Sale (VDFS) took to the blue waters of the Davao Gulf and the white sand beaches of Samal last May 7 as the Island Garden City of Samal hosted back-to-back activities.

Whew! That's a long title. But not as long as the road that we took just to get to this paradise.
Situated more than 40kms away from Babak, Samal, the Island Garden Resort in Pangubatan is not known to many (at least for me). I've never heard about this resort until Jan's office mates decided to have their quarterly event here. But for some reason, the event didn't push through - which could only mean, Jan and I ended up having the whole weekend all to ourselves!
And we definitely had a great time! This vlog will tell you so:
