Last week, my best friend, Angel, invited us to their family’s trip to Agno, Pangasinan. Since it was scheduled days after the boyfriend and best friend’s graduation and it is summer, we decided to tag along. The trip was scheduled on the 17th and 18th of April.
We left Antipolo at exactly 2 a.m. and arrived in Agno around 10 a.m. We headed straight to a rest house owned by Angel’s relatives. We spent few hours to rest and take our lunch then we went to our first stop: Umbrella Rocks beach.
Umbrella Rocks is famous for its diverse marine eco-system showing different beautiful corals and sea creatures. One unique thing about Umbrella Rocks are those mushroom-shaped and umbrella-shaped rock formations that every tourists would love to take selfies with.
The place is so beautiful that we’re itching to stroll around the place. After changing, Ron and I left everyone to explore more of the place and the beach.
Apparently, we spent the entire afternoon taking photos in every beautiful spot of the beach.
As the sun sets down, we went back to the house; changed, had dinner, chill around, then slept.
We woke up around 5 or 6 a.m. I thought that we’re already going back to Manila that time but they decided to go to another beach. We took our breakfast by the porch of the house.
Our second stop: Aloleng beach.
We went first while Angel’s family are preparing food for lunch. Comparing the two beach we went to, we fell in love to this one.
We spent the entire morning until noon swimming and enjoying the serenity of the beach.
Around noon, Ron and I spent our time sitting by the beach – enjoying the view and our time together. It is the most memorable weekend for us, so far. The ambiance is so relaxing that we end up taking naps. After we had our late lunch, we go back to the house, took rest, and then we left for Manila.
Not to mention the heavy traffic along NLEX, our trip back to Manila consists of naps, naps, and movie marathon (because Pau brought her laptop.) It was a good weekend for us. Two days away from the city? Not bad. We can’t wait for more out-of-town trips altogether, and next time Pau will no longer be a 7th wheeler. 😀
