As early as 4AM we took off and headed our way to San Agustin, a municipal town in Surigao del Sur. It was a 3-hour drive from my hometown. Seated comfortably in the car, I could see the quite road and the lush trees sleeping in the morning mist. It was a long drive and at some point I could feel the eerie silence. Well, must be my imagination, it's gonna be Halloween in a couple of days.
Speaking of Halloween, I realized it's becoming a tradition, my personal tradition every Halloween that is, to take some time off and indulge myself in beautiful places. This year, I've decided to go to Britania, a place composed of 25 islands and islets.
With my camera and wandering feet ready, here's a glimpse of Britania.

passed by this rocky dome on our way to Hagonoy Island
first stop : Hagonoy island
the fine sand of Hagonoy....
next stop : Naked island. Naked because its pure sprawling sandbar. Not a single tree. Even grass.

3rd stop : Hiyor-hiyoran island. It started to rain when we get there. Good thing there are trees around so I didn't get soaking wet. While my companions were busy dipping in cool waters, I had the opportunity to roam around and take many pictures.
4th stop : Buslon island. It was crowded when we get there coz most hoppers usually take their lunch here.
I took a lot of pictures and I was so mesmerized by the cupcake-shaped islands nearby.
this is a small opening beneath the rocks. It's like a cave but not sure what it's called.
Lovely place isn't it?
I had a wonderful time in Britania and the good thing was that I didn't spend much unlike in my previous travels.
