I’ve been to Siargao, Surigao del Norte for work twice, and my favorite part of the island is, and always will be, its people. Last year, we visited Brgy. Mahayahay in Del Carmen, Siargao. This year, I got the chance to spend the night and experience a humbling morning in the beautiful community of San Fernando.
Siargao is one of the most beautiful places I’ve been to. But instead of taking photos of its breathtaking views, I captured moments. And smiles.
Thank you to the children of Siargao. You reminded me to find the beauty in everyone.
And to find happiness in the little things.
I will see you again.
“You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.”
