The Joy of Reading

One of the pleasures of life is the luxury of being alone, reading a good book, and not having to wear a mask after several days of non-stop meetings. It is a joy coming home to this beautiful boutique hotel in Sorsogon City. It was designed and is owned and operated by a talented Filipino couple who are architects and furniture designers. CoVid has made me its only guest.

All around the grounds are forests of tree ferns, those prehistoric vegetation that are older than the dinosaurs. This is a place of utter calm and beauty.

Sorsogon City, Sorsogon sits on the Bicol Region, the Southernmost portion of Luzon, the largest island amongst the 7,100 islands in the Philippune archipelago. It is bounded on one side by active volcanos and embraced by the ocean on the other side. It is lush and beautiful and worth a visit.
