Estelea's Blog

French Mum, humanitarian, restless explorer and doer on sabbatical in Cebu (Philippines): one Attila in each arm, I am exploring the “toddlers safe” corners of the region, while trying to keep some room for Me.


Good mooorning Bantayanlrv

The island of Bantayan in the Philippines, is our other home: smell the flagrance of the sun, feel the caresses of the wind, walk on the satin sandy beaches. No pollution, no noise. Nature is in charge…

      Not even! A simple public and free beach at the entrance of Santa Fe, Bantayan. One of those places with a magic “mind cleansing” power 🙂
