A series of tropical photos always make my eyes glaze, my mind wander and my heart burn to be on the lonesome beaches. When trying to sort through my mammoth photo library from the past year of travels, I stumbled across hundreds of shots from my time island hopping in the Philippines. So many wanderlust shots of turquoise waters, white sands, coconuts and the best of friends.

Those islands brought about such an exotic adventure that will always be emblazoned in my memories, so I thought I’d share my top 26 photos that will make you want to visit the Philippines too! Let’s see if I can get you booking a flight by photo 26…..

Sophie Saint was one of the original travelettes, from 2009 – 2017. After fleeing the UK with ink barely dry on her graduation certificate, she traversed the world with a backpack and spent a few years living in Melbourne – one of her favourite cities in the world.

She finally returned to the UK after a few years where she now whiles time away zipping off for European escapes, crocheting and daydreaming of owning her own hostel somewhere hot to live out eternal summers. See what she’s up to over on her blog saintsonaplane.com and instagram: @saintsonaplane
