I conveniently define beach vacations to be confined within the comforts of a nearby accommodation with the provision of food and drinks. I just find it perfect to enjoy the heat and the everlasting pleasure of sweating around while submerging in water.
But camping and going out of the comforts would make a whole different story. Anawangin, Zambales definitely rings a bell. I just like how the pines are covering the entire camping area. It just makes everything comforting and relaxing. The Anawangin experience will bring good experiences without worrying so much on food or bed. Life seems to be made simple by putting-up a tent and making food out of available resources.
Summer can be as simple as heading toward simplicity and relaxation.
