2008-08-03- Surf Trip in La Union

I am finally back to business and found some time to write in the blog, i have been traveling around and visiting different places in and out Philippines.

This was my very first trip since I arrived to stay here for the next 6 months. I went with Oriol and other people we met to San Juan (La Union), the trip was organized by Jehan.

It was a 2 days trip with over night in a house on the beach, all the trip costed around 55€ including car, driver, acomodation, food and drinks, one hour of surf lessons and eco-tour trail with guides and transportation.

The ride was about 5 hours with a van, 8 people, Thomas and Patricia(France), Russel (Scotland), Jehan, Rose and Laxmi (Philippines), Oriol and me.

 The Trip crew!! 

We arrived early in the morning, we had a quick nap and we started hour surf lectures J.

Time to practice the basics!!

And there i go!! Balance Balance !!

 My instructor the best !! 

At night we had some drinks and food with the surf instructors. Some people had more fun then others and got really wasted hehehe.

It was Laxmi's Bday too :)
 An improvised cake and candle for my Bday!!

Next day was the eco-tour, it consisted in a trail in the mountain across the forest and the rice terraces till we reached the waterfalls.

For the hike we were supposed to where our hiking boots but everyone forgot them on the beach and we did it with flip flops or bare foot directly, at times it was hard but it was a complete experience walking on the mud.

 Ready for hiking? Where are the boots? xD

 Views where simple beautiful.

Sometimes there was no trail at all.

Some parts of the river where really slippery and it was dangerous, you could fall and hit your head with a rock.

Small break before doing the last part till the waterfalls.

 And there we are !!! 

We were soooo happy when we saw the waterfalls that we forgot it was still left all the way back. While coming back it started to rain really heavy but it was very nice to do all the way back under rain. The temperature was around 30 degrees and the rain was refreshing.

More to come soon... meanwhile smile please !!
