Budget Breakdown: El Nido Escape

6:46 AM

Our trip to El Nido was supposed to be from July 12 to July 14 only but Cebu Pacific called and cancelled our flights. So we had the option to rebook for free. Chose the first flight on July 12 then the last flight for July 16 making it a 5-day retreat. You know how people say there is always a grand scheme for everything? This trip was a proof of that. Glenda hit Manila on Wednesday morning so our original Tuesday night flight would have been affected. Thankfully we got to Talindak Cottages Tuesday morning and spent the whole day just chilling in our balcony. Waves were crashing hard and rain was pouring nonstop. No Nacpan beach as originally intended but got the time we needed to pause and reflect on our lives.
