It has been our tradition as friends to go somewhere when the year ends, one reason is to get away from the loudness of the city during New Year's eve. For busy people like my friends needs some quietness and relaxing place to stay.
Year 2008, we went to Anawangin (part of Zambalez, Philippines); a very beautiful and secluded place. And we stayed here for 4 days with tents and no electricity or cellphone (you can't get any signal). For you to get to this beautiful beach you need to take a boat for about 45 minutes to 1hour. each boat cost no less than one thousand five hundred.
Last year 2009, our group of friends went back to Ilocos, Philippines. I said went back because sometime summer 2007 we came to visit this place for the first and was in awe of its beauty reasons of our comeback. Its 12 hours drive away from Manila. The drive maybe long but when you take hold of the beautiful.. you will tell yourself that... "its worth it!"
