Travel Diary: Batanes

Their airport is probably the most peaceful one I've been to. With only one flight into Basco (which turns around back to Manila right after it arrives), the airport is only busy in the early hours of the day.This was our view on our drive to the hometel. Of course we asked our driver to stop so that we could take photos :P
Later in the day, we visited Fundacion Pacita, where E&E's wedding will be held. It was a long afternoon of wedding planning, and we tried to get as many tasks done in our quick trip.I was a bit starstruck when I met their gardener Richard.
I am in love his manicured gardens!
Tukon Chapel

The next morning, after some of Em's church errands, we stumbled upon the tourist center, and the lady  in charge of the place had two of her interns accompany us as we walked around town to shop for souvenirs. I spotted some interested things along the way:A local art gallery
Love the blush and peach colors (with mixed prints!) of this old lady walking the streets.
Also, there are flowers everywhere. Even the most humble homes are dotted with spring color on their front porches.
