dad and daughter adventure
it's been an annual tradition for tom and aryanna to go off to some (local) exotic place and have a dad and daughter bonding time. they have been doing this for the last three years. last year, they went off to pansukian resort in siargao, surigao. it's actually our favorite family summer destination. it's where we surf, hang out, and tan. we've been going to the resort for almost six years! sadly, the resort will close down this year and a new management will build another resort. so it was perfect timing that tom and aryanna were able to stay there last year. we will miss owner nicholas rambeau, his girl friend gae, and their dogs napoleon and chocolat (french accent pls.)
this year's destination is... batanes! as early as august 2009, we all planned a trip to visit the island as it is one of my husband's favorite place in the world (he's been to batanes many times working in the past with the dept. of tourism.) but since we have a new baby, only tom and aryanna were able to go. it's ok, dylan and i are having our own little adventure at home.
tom really loves the phillipines. i think he has been to more places in the philippines than me and i've always been embarrassed about that. anyway, i should try to travel around the my country more.
my husband and daughter are now in batanes as i write this. they are doing a bike trip! yes, they ride a bike almost everywhere in batanes. i wonder how they could spend the whole day biking around. the pictures that they emailed me answered my query:
mr. roboto is free wheeling!
the hills are alive in batanes! what! a! view!
i will update all of you about tom and aryanna's bike trip in batanes. all i can say for now is... there is a book involved. so exciting!
