The view from above: White Beach, one of Puerto Galera’s most trafficked strips of sand, lies about 50 feet below the mountain road wending its way towards the northern apex of Mindoro Island. My personal trike driver and I were off to see the most remote beaches in the Pureto Galera area, Aninuan and Talipanan. Incidentally, they were rumoured to be the best…
With the cultural highlights of Northern Luzon calling my name, I had one more day before hopping back on the ferry to the big island. Talking the owners at Badladz, I inquired about any other beaches I had to see before departing. They mentioned two: Aninuan and Talipanan beaches, located almost at the tip of Mindoro, where few tourists bother to tread.
For me, this was a fortuitous stroke of luck, as these slices of heaven were what I was searching for when I struck out from Manila a week prior … tropical serenity and solitude.
After a moment of zen that lasted fifteen solid minutes, we eventually pressed on to Talipanan beach … again, just one resort here, catering to your every need, a world away from the zoo that is Sabang…
… and with that, you have just read the last official post on this site! Nonononono, don’t worry … Pursuit of Excitement isn’t ending, we’re moving house! The new website for The Pursuit of Excitement is up and running! While design changes are still forthcoming, and I still may move over some posts from this site to the new one, it is now open for business!
Head on over and and sign up for the newsletter, as the e-mail subscription that you are likely reading this post through will not carry over to the new site. I will post a direct link to where you can sign up for the new site on Thursday/Friday, so you won’t miss a thing.
I’m really excited about this shift, and as always, you are all welcome to comment what you like/dislike about the new site, and what you would love to see me cover as we move forward. See you all at pursuitofexcitement.com!
