There is nothing better than a boat trip in the Philippines. There is a never ending list of islands big and small you can visit. . We stopped at Virgin Island today for lunch and were met with fresh seafood being BBQd in bamboo shacks. . We tried everything at this one shack but the best was this little beauty.. Abalone. . It’s excessively expensive back home but glad this was the first try as how could it taste better than being simply cooked under the sun on a paradise island.
