It's summertime here and I am probably as excited as my daughters at the prospect of going swimming, whether in the beach or in a pool! LOL! In the shops you'll see all sorts of swim gear displayed, swimsuits, floaters, sunscreen. My country is known to have some of the best beaches in the world! We have 7,107 islands, so no wonder I love water so much hehe.
I also love this time of the year because I get to have some bonding time with the family. I would always plan swimming activities all throughout the summer. The sun shining down on your well-oiled skin while you are sipping a tall lemonade and just simply dipping your toes in the water.
I remembered I learned how to swim when I was four. My cousins and I got tired of waiting in the sidelines, we wanted to immerse in the cool blue waters. I knew I probably drank about a pool of water (LOL!) but geez I was pretty determined. I wanted to learn to swim that day and I didn't want to go home without actually learning. And I did! My mom was pretty amazed and scared at how determined I was to learn. By the end of the day I was plunging in and out of the water and I would never forget how good that felt.
Here's a video of some of the cool places and the best beaches here in my country. I hope you will enjoy this as much as I did. And out of the 7,107 islands sadly I was only able to visit around 3 or 4. But I am planning to see more and more each year.
MABUHAY! as we say it here.
Have a great summer guys!
