A Journey to Hundred Islands, Pangasinan with High School Classmates

This week I gladly present photos from our Hundred Island adventure together with a few of our former classmates. We find this travel adventure quite memorable as we never planned to go as normal travelers would. Quite the contrary, as we just messaged one another one weekend morning just to go for a break-in ride on our friend Rhoda's Geely Coolray auto. More exchanged messages came, and in 20 minutes we all decided to go to Alaminos, Pangasinan!

Summer is already here in the Philippines and for sure a lot of tourists are planning to visit the islands these days. So here are a lot of photos we took which I am posting as my entry for Wordless Wednesday, Wordless Wednesday 2, Signs2, and Skywatch Friday. These photos are also available on my Flickr photostream, so enjoy!

Gathered at the entrance of  The Hundred Islands, Alaminos City, Pangasinan, we were a group of friends whose paths hadn't crossed in  a few months. Yet, as we exchanged greetings and shared stories of our lives since our last high school reunion, it felt as though no time had passed at all. Laughter filled the air as we boarded the boat that would take us to the enchanting Hundred Islands.

As we approached the first island, excitement surged through us like a wave. The pristine blue waters, lush greenery, and limestone formations stood as a testament to the wonders of nature. We eagerly took photos and short videos to post on Facebook Reels, Tiktok and on our high school group forum. For a moment, we were teenagers again, filled with wonder and awe at the crystal-clear waters, marveling at the vibrant marine life below. 

Our hearts raced, our spirits soared, and in those exhilarating moments, we felt truly alive! Our visit to Hundred Islands was more than just a getaway; it was a celebration of friendship that transcended time and distance.

Our journey to Hundred Islands in Pangasinan was a testament to the enduring power of friendship and the timeless joy of adventure. Despite our age of 52, we proved that youth is not measured by the years we've lived but by the moments that ignite our spirits and fill our hearts with joy. As we bid farewell to this enchanting paradise, we carried with us memories that would last a lifetime, reaffirming the bonds that bind us together, forever young at heart.
