|My First Picture at Puerto Galera|
Because a very tiring day 1 going to Puerto Galera and we are almost hungry we decided to eat our brunch at Terminal bbq, ribs, subs and more fast food located near at Terminal Station-Beach Front. This fast food chain caters good tummy foods and the best part of it is unlimited rice for big guys like us.
After we eat, we decided to go back at the resort to take a nap-time so that we will enjoy our afternoon get away at the beach front of Puerto Galera. . .
After our nap in the resort we go to beach front to witness the beauty of Puerto Galera especially the sunset. You will love also the huge landscape mountain ranges, behind the Puerto Galera beaches.
