A Short Hike to Kupaw-Kupaw, Dasol, Pangasinan

The lockdown has challenged us in many ways. I've been so used to being in 3 different places that staying in place for almost a year now that being in one place for 9 months is unthinkable. But, it happened! 

Because of the quarantine here in Manila, most of us are not able to go out for vacations, quick holidays and nature trips. If you are just like me, you probably miss heading to the beach to watch the sun set and enjoy the cool sea breeze in the late afternoon. 

These clips have been sitting in my iMovie for about 2 years and finally I got to sit down and turn it into this. 

They were taken from our short hike to see the 'death pool' in Kupaw-Kupaw, Dasol, Pangasinan. If you watch the whole video, you'll see why it's called 'death pool'. 

I hope you enjoy this simple video of one of my favorite places.
