It was back in 2010, a few months after my graduation from the university that I decided out of the blue to come and visit Puerto Galera in Mindoro. It was a few hours of bus drive from Manila, and another hour of boat ride to the island (from Batangas Port). Together with the company of some friends, we reached the island and scouted for a house. Luckily we found a very nice place and the rest is history.
True, it has been 5 years since I stepped foot on the place. I wouldn’t mind coming back.
