The Batanes Islands are the northernmost and most isolated island group in the Philippines. The cost of traveling limits the number of times one can visit, but it's the weather that ultimately determines when you can go, if at all. The Batanes Islands -- ten in all, though only the three largest are permanently inhabited -- are a favorite typhoon stomping ground. But in this Home of the Winds, people have learned to live with nature's fury and have shaped a paradise that, although rough at the edges, is undeniably memorable to the very core.
