“Paradise was always over there, a day’s sail away. But it’s a funny thing, escapism. You can go far and wide and you can keep moving on and on through places and years, but you never escape your own life. I, finally, knew where my life belonged. Home.”J. Maarten Troost, Getting Stoned with Savages: A Trip Through the Islands of Fiji and Vanuatu

Camiguin’s famous White Island is merely a long strip of white sand bar shaped like a smile in the middle of the aquamarine sea.  At high tide, it gets knee-deep, and without shelter from the burning sun, it is best to keep re-applying sunblock from time to time.
