Summer in ELYU

TBR 2I used to travel a lot to La Union when I was still working as a marketing specialist for a resort. The weekly 6-hour commute from Manila became common to me and stopovers were a favorite of mine.

Even though it took me a while to go back, there’s a part of it that still feels like home.


With a small budget at hand but a baggage enough for a week, we decided on this impromptu overnight DIY Summer trip.

FIRST STOP: Thunderbird Resorts Poro Point

SECOND STOP: San Juan, La Union

We didn’t actually plan to surf. Our main agenda was just to chill and we were able to do that – thanks to coffee, uncrowded shore and artsy hostel.


Good to note that the 6-hour travel time was down to 4 hours. What I love about this trip: (1) not work related, (2) stayed as a guest, (3) first time to try a shared-room hostel, (4) no strict itinerary, (5) a lot of time at the beach, (6) travelling with the best friend to boot.
