It’s official. I’m in love with Batanes. I visited my dream destination, the northernmost province of the Philippines, for the first time this year. I remember the day I first clipped a newspaper article about Batanes and vowed to go there when I got older. Now I finally have my own articles about Batanes.
Like other travelers who were enamored with the place, I took hundreds of photos. It’s tempting to want to show off every single one on social media, but one exercise I practice is to ask myself, “If you had to narrow it down to only 10-20 photos, which ones best represent your experience?” I went a little off the boundary with 25.
