Friday (travel) photo/s: Camiguin Island, Philippines

I’ve been thinking about the Philippines a lot this week, not only because it’s our recycled ornament and dreidel ordering season–retailers can find out more here— but mostly because of news of the catastrophic floods in Metro Manila.

While the fair trade producer I work with is in Manila, there was a time when I traveled all over the country.  My favorite place in the Philippines, and among the best travel experience I’ve had anywhere is on Camiguin Island.  It’s an amazing place. Below are just a few of many, many photos:

 

boats

in the event you forget where you are; the boats can just easily read “paradise”

view from a hill

typical view. really.

lazones

the island is know from lazones, a sticky and sweet and addictive little fruit

 

waving from white island

these lovely people, waving goodbye to me, resulted in one of my best travel stories ever.  (I won’t go into it now.)

Whether you’re staying put or off on an adventure, have a great weekend.
