Snapshot Saturday: Wild Horses

Batanes... Where horses run free. And run away from Journeying James.

The wind hit us hard. I struggled to keep my balance, and so did everyone. We were merry nonetheless, and making the most out of SEAir's Batanes Winter Bloggers' Tour. We ran around Batan Island's pasture like kids, and shrieked with delight when we caught sight of horses grazing.

We screamed our hearts all the more when James took off his shirt and put on a hat to pose as a haciendero for us. And we didn't have to beg much, he's cool like that.

Nice snapshot, it looks like hacienda with the vast grass fields from Batanes like that. Everything is a wide space inviting for a free wild run and wander.

Very nice! I thought sa ibang bansa until I read the text. :D Batanes is one of the places na gusto kong puntahan within this year but it looks like the typhoon season won't let me do that :(

Hi Gabz, Batanes does look like a place in a different country. If you like the freezing season, visit around February :)

Along with El Nido, Batanes is still unconquered territory for me. Every time I'm in the Philippines, I always ran out of time *sigh*

Haha! Izah, couldn't even begin sharing the stuff we did. Every time I reminisce I end up laughing, then I find it difficult to write about it.
