Easter Sunday in the Countryside

Nothing beats the beauty of simplicity, peace and quiet countryside lifestyle.

A stark contrast to the concrete jungle, the countryside is a place of peace and nature. While it may not be a place where you’ll be able to find excitement or fancy stores, it’s a great place to relax quietly and enjoy the natural side of life.

Ed and I have both grown up in countryside. We both love nature, laid-back lifestyle and we always long for country roads to reconnect to our inner self. There’s something about the way mountains, meadows and farms stretch out over vast landscapes that soothes the soul.

On our Easter holiday back home, we got the chance to go around and enjoy the beauty of nature in the neighboring towns of Virac.

Driving to Baras took us about 1h 18 min (40.6 km) via Catanduanes Circumferential Road and another 24 min to Talisoy (12.1 km).

If you’ve recently found yourself stressed, on edge, or just generally exhausted and unhappy, you may need to take a look going to countryside and become more laid-back.

From the daring cliffs at PAGASA weather station, to the simplicity of Virac town and strolling in an adorable Talisoy beach, let the countryside take you home in a way you haven’t been in a long time. Winding rural roads soothe the mind, body and soul, while teaching travelers the lessons of endurance, patience and simple joys.

Much love,
