Certainly, there is nothing better than the luxury of taking some time off to fully relax in a secluded place. A stunning scenery surrounded by rolling hills that gradually cascade down into a serene valley. What could be more idyllic than a place like this?

And though living in the city has its perks, it has also stripped us of life’s simple joys.

There is no doubt that the elusive quest for a better life has made the allure of living in the city even more enticing than it has ever been.

However, in recent years, people have become acutely aware of how life in the city has perversely affected their well-being. Aside from terrible virulent pollutants, steep crime rates, pesticide-laden food, and congested roads, myriad of other issues persist.

Thus, seeing people build second homes in the countryside comes as no surprise.

Here are just some of the perks of living in the province.

“And on a whim we had a happy picnic in a tiny house on a hill” – Lucy Torres Gomez

Homecooked Garden-Fresh Meals

Having access to fresh produce is one of the perks of living in the province. Their vegetable and herb gardens provide fresh ingredients for preparing healthy and savory meals at home.

Thanks to Richard’s penchant for raising farm animals, Lucy amusedly shared with her followers how her home in Ormoc had suddenly turned into a mini-farm overnight.

Their vast yard houses a growing number of chickens, ducks, and yes, a piglet.

Fresh Produce from the Family Farm

The nutrient-dense soil in the province prompted them to start a hobby farm. It yields a bountiful harvest of fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs, which they generously share with family and friends.

They also have their own apiary. It produces a copious amount of honey which they give as gifts on special occasions.

Long Table Meals on Weekends

Families usually live close by in the province, so hosting a family get-together is a breeze.

An anxiety-filled life isn’t worth living. Hence, we must learn to tune out the noise and pay attention to what matters. Let’s take the time to explore scenic views, engage in lively chit-chat, share delicious food, and have a fun time together without feeling rushed.

In Lucy’s case, she seems to have mastered the art of living in the present moment. Certainly, not a small feat considering the stressful nature of her job.
