My family and I recently went on a short vacation to Davao. I loved the city’s relaxed atmosphere – no wonder it’s renowned as one of the peaceful and safest cities in the world! We also made a side trip to Samal Island. Unfortunately however, we weren’t able to fully enjoy its beauty due to the gloomy weather. I promise to be back and I hope to see more local destinations in the new year. I know I’ll never be able to visit the Philippines’ 7,107 islands (or even half of it), but you get my point. Our country is so beautiful!
