Photo Diary: Guam Island Tour Day Two

guam-day-two

On the second day of our Guam island tour, we drove around the south side to visit scenic places, World War II memorial sites, and then capping the day off with the Guam Live concert. I enjoyed our second day more than the first mostly because the south side of the island simply had more scenic views. Have a look below of what our Day Two in Guam entailed:

Fort Soledad

Jeff’s Pirates Cove

A popular restaurant among locals and tourists. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see Jeff (he’s a big guy with a white beard) so I didn’t get to have a photo taken with him.

IMG_4321Yokoi is the Japanese who hid in the forests of Guam for nearly 3 decades. He had no idea that the war was over until local hunters discovered him. Quite an interesting story, so I left a link for those who want to read more about him!

Guam Live: Day 1

IMG_4322Every year Guam holds a music festival called Guam Live featuring local and foreign artists, locals and tourists enjoy two nights of great music, booze and food, and it’s no wonder why! I mean, who doesn’t like music festivals?
IMG_4323We were at Guam Live as VIP/Media so we were able to get to the very front of the stage to snap some photographs, and enjoy the music. The crowd’s energy was contagious. It didn’t matter if it was the first time I’d even heard of these artists, their music was great and enjoyable.
IMG_4325Common Kings performing, definitely a crowd favorite.

A little VIP treatment in between sets. Free drinks. Guam Live knows how to do it right ;-)
IMG_4327Oh, hey! It’s Cee Lo Green! I’m not a huge fan, but I definitely enjoyed his band.
IMG_4326See what I mean? His band is 100 times cooler than he will ever be. Sorry, Cee Lo!

Eventually we were kicked off the media area because apparently, Cee Lo’s contract with Guam Live didn’t include photos. For some reason, I guess he doesnt want people making money off his face in case they sell the images on Getty or something. This was fine by us, so we left because we were getting hungry anyway.

Denny’s Midnight Snack

We soon found ourselves at Denny’s for a midnight snack. It was one of the very few establishments open. The cool and weird thing is, they have a separate menu full of Filipino dishes; I’m speaking lechon kawali, fried bangus, longganisa with fried egg — the works! I was tempted to get a Filipino breakfast dish but decided, “Meh, I’m technically in the US. Might as well stick to an American meal.” So I ended up with a chicken sandwich. haha Just another instance where Guam definitely felt more like home than being in a U.S. territory.

I hope you enjoyed my photo diary post for the second day of our Guam island tour. I’ve still got days 3-4 left and I believe those days have been documented less due to the fact that we mostly relaxed the next few days doing a bit of shopping :-P That’s what Guam is quite famous for: sceneries, a bit of World War II history, and shopping. :-P
