As summer winds down, BENCH BLOG emphasizes a rediscovery of domestic destinations before we settle indoors. To wrap up this travel-hardy season, new nomad JM Sabariaga (@jm.sabriaga) sends us #LoveLocal all the way from Bataan.
Story behind the snap:
“I like going to unfamiliar places that have breathtaking sceneries and inspire tranquility. Since its proximity is just within our region, I asked my friend to join me on a photo adventure to Bataan.”
Local thing to love about this destination:
“The pebble beach which you can swim in for free, plus there’s a cottage area where you can take a rest, grab a bite at, or sing your favorite KTV song. Also, the sunset and lighthouse that makes the scene picture-perfect.
There is also a mountain and grotto which you can take a hike up for just 10 to 15 minutes; everything an adventurer and a photo enthusiast would ask for! I had a great time taking photos, enjoying the view, and appreciating the beauty of my own country.”
“Spend the night at Sisiman and rise early to catch the sunrise and head to Mt. San Miguel for an early hike. You won’t regret it.”
