Mornings at Tumon Bay

Early Morning at Tumon Bay, Guam

Just this past weekend, I celebrated my 29th year in the beautiful island paradise of Guam. This trip is truly memorable because it did not just mark my 16th country/territory, it also made me set foot on my 3rd continent - Oceania/Australia. A territory of the United States of America, Guam boasts of its amazing views of the sea, and clear summer skies all year long.

Crystal Clear Waters

It was very tempting for me that morning to take a leap and swim but I was about to get in my flight in a few hours. Just take a look at how clean and clear the water is right across this park. Well with all these views, I will never miss the chance to take as much photos as I can, including a few with my travel buddy Krit.

My Travel Buddy Krit Enjoying the Guam Sun

Guam enjoys a tropical rainforest climate all 12 months of the year filled with sunny skies and occasional rains. Since the island is located in the middle of the Pacific, typhoons usually visit the landmasses a few times a year. For a Filipino like me, there is no drastic change in the weather when I was there except that I left the Philippines that Friday night with strong rains and moving to this island to continue with the sunny skies.

View from the Hilton Guam Lobby

My new found friend John who was also my host during my four day stay at the island took me to the beautiful park at the Hilton where these stunning views are located at. I really liked the resort and hotel because the people are very friendly and accommodating.

The Chapel at Hilton Guam

Guam is also a very famous spot for destination weddings that hotels and resorts have dedicated chapels that have stunning views for brides and grooms to tie the knot. This one is located within the vicinity of the hotel. We were not allowed to get inside it but imagine the views from the inside with all those glass windows. Fairy Tale Wedding for sure!

Meditation Hut

I thank my dear friend and brother John for letting me see this sights a few hours before I left the island. The beautiful palm trees and crystal clear blue waters of Guam will always be engraved in my mind and in my heart.

By the way, May I take this opportunity to greet my friends in the United States of America a Happy Independence Day! Thank you for letting me see your beautiful island of Guam, hope to explore more of american lands in the coming years!
