Castaways (Caramoan Expedition)

A point in your life where you imagined yourself being one of those castaways trapped in a foreign island – – – and we are no exception. We outwitted, outlasted, and outplayed the first-class municipality of Camarines Sur for 2 days and one night.  We settled with (http://caramoandiscovery.com/) for our meals, hotel accommodation, and package inclusions but you can directly contact Kuya Julius for tour arrangements: (0930) 399-3486 (free promotion to Kuya Julius! =)

And after that loooo…oooong and dull journey, we finally arrived. We proceeded to explore 4 of the several islets of Caramoan peninsula after we had our lunch.

We are all castaways trapped in a world filled with differences. The challenge is not to fight back, but to know how to blend in. Nobody won being a hermit anyways. Life itself is rewarding if you will only prove your worth. But more often than not, we cannot. From this point, we are either provoked or defeated; and it is up to us to decide on whether to stay to that point or not. In the reality show, you have to compete with others to win, but in reality, you have to compete with yourself to succeed.

St. Michael the Archangel Church, a historical church made of red bricks that was built in 15th century during the Spanish era.

Naive we are way back then, not knowing what lies ahead. Despite the struggle of life itself, things or people come when you least expect it. A friendship that was neither planned nor designed yet just happened. And as of the moment, we survived many things apart from the island. We survived UST, we survived college, we survived Accounting, and definitely, we will survive life! =)
