Nothing is better than going away to a quite place and surrounded by nature!
My partner and I went on a drive to the mountain and all in a sudden felt the urge of going on a vacation again. He didn't want to travel outside Cebu after travel so many times in the past few months so we decided to stay at a resort in the mountain just an hour drive from our place called West 35.
We've been here a few times but we never really stay at the resort. So,we booked the room for one night but we decided to stay the following night without any plans, no bags packed, lol. My partner went home to get clothes for us and to also check on our two cats.
It's a really romantic place, our bathroom had a jacuzzi and glass windows where you can see the landscape. I was so tempted to take some photos but I didn't have my phone. Both of our phones were switch off since there's no internet nor mobile signal. My partner and I had deal not to use our mobile phones but rather take the time to enjoy the scenery.
The restaurant at the resort had a decent menu. We ordered some of their sandwiches and pizza, it was edible though our favorite dish to order was the corn soup and native chicken soup, which was really good and perfect for the cool weather.
We went home after staying at the resort for two nights but we ended up going back few days after and stayed for another three nights! We didn't want to stay for the weekend because the resort gets a lot of visitors during this period.
Our next visit, we enjoyed the bonfire just outside our room and had some hot chocolate and some s'mores that we brought with us. Can't have a bonfire without s'mores! :)
It was a very romantic vacation for us, we chatted a lot, talked about fun stuff, about life and about our future.
