Island Hopping Experience, Port Barton

It was a bright and sunny day for an Island Hopping Experience Visiting a province that comprises of roughly 1780 islands will leave you feeling the need to go on an island hopping tour at least once.

Loving Port Barton

Loving Port Barton

There’s always something refreshing in finding yourself in a place that not a lot of people know about.

And more often, with this mindset, we forget to appreciate and even neglect that it also exists close to home. Having traveled solo for most of my previous trips, to be somehow taken care of gave me a refreshing sense of comfort. Mind you, it wasn’t that I was babysat or treated like a princess. I…
