Summer break is coming slowly, do you feel the heat? The itch at the back of your feet.
Thirst for fresh coconut juice while sitting on the beach.
Summer is really here, it’s the best time in the Philippines to plan a vacation and celebrate after graduation.
But the truth is before your feet land and experiences the paradise you are imagining right now, it’s very stressful choosing and planning which place to visit and who to go with. Especially if you receive travel invitations from several people close to your heart. When co-workers are planning team building, while your friends longing for an epic barkada trip, and then at the same time some from your family will celebrate a birthday, inviting you to come over in their province. All of that at the same time! Summer is the season where almost everyone around you wants do is to escape the city. There will always be that someone who's clueless where to go…
And there you are, just like me.
Where is your Sweet Escape?
From there, I thought maybe it's not just you & I who feel stuck. There are people like us, who do not have plans this year to enjoy summer in a faraway place. Who wants to relax and stop rushing to find the kind of joy we can experience without traveling that far. We have our own sweet escape, whichever city you came from. I know… there's a place in these busy cities where we find peace, own pace, & clarity. Help me show to others that we can enjoy the city itself. I want you to help me showcase the beauty in the corners of our own towns.
Somewhere exciting, somewhere seem familiar that remained unknown to many.
Let us learn something from your entry.
Take us there!
