An ongoing journey

A day to rest and play

In most western countries, you set aside and hour or so to go swim in the pool, but in the Philippines you don’t just go for a quick swim, you pack up the family, food and water, and arrive as early in the day to get best value for money as the entry fee for the day as the same as for the hour.
