Every tour in El Nido has some kind of resting place where every tired traveler ends up either asleep or so exhausted they’d rather go back than spend another minute on the beach. If there’s such a thing as beach overload, this is what the last beach of every tour always experiences. In Tour A, that beach happens to be one of the most beautiful beaches in El Nido with a gorgeous sunset – perfect for the final part of Tour A. Two years ago, this was where I found my heart.
Saturday Secret for June 18, 2011 While most of the wars internationally take many, many years before one of the nationalities surrender, there are different cases. 7 years, 10 years, even longer! Did you know….? ….. ….. That opposed to the years it took to finish some wars, this certain war between two countries took only 38 minutes! Yes, so everyone else who took years were just overreacting – kidding! Just a joke guys. The war between England and Zanzibar in 1896 barely started when it was already over! Zanzibar surrendered after approximately 37 minutes 23 seconds. Quick huh? I wonder if there are actual artifacts or any memorabilias from this war. If you’re in England or Zanzibar anytime soon, maybe you should ask around about the war and what happened.

Saturday Secret for June 4, 2011 Did you know? … … That many years ago, beautiful girls where sent to die in volcanoes? Apparently, that’s right! In Mexico and Nicaragua, the people believed that volcanoes were where their gods lived. Thus, to make their crops better and their harvest fruitful each year, they would have a young, beautiful girl sacrifice themselves as the people’s gift to the gods. This case was also the legend of Mt. Pinatubo, where the people believed that a god lived inside the volcano. They were disappointed when the volcano erupted and were convinced that their god abandoned them.
