We tried to catch summer in the middle of june.

We went on a trip to Iloilo and rode a boat to the island of Mangoes, Guimaras.


We rode a tiny boat to the island and moved at almost turtle pace. We were afraid for our lives but our father and son tandem of boatmen were the best at manoeuvring strong choppy waves.

The second half of the trip, we spent on an island called “Gigantes” in English- Giants. Local legend tells of coffins containing giant bones found in one of the islands thus the name Gigantes.

We spent days under the sun

and nights under the stars.

We were lucky to have caught summer just before it had passed.
