It was dawn when I woke up to the noises of fishermen. They were drawing-in their net to shore. I ran down from my room to join them. I have always wanted to experience this with the locals. It was a modest catch of anchovies. The lot was equally divided to feed their families.
In the islands people may be poor but they are never hungry. They have the sea and the vegetation of the land to feed them. Life is simple but they are happy.
This was my solo travel weekend escape to Puerto Galera. It was inspired by the book “The 4-hour Workweek”. I needed to hit the beach before going back to the corporate world.
