MANILA – The Olympian boyfriend of Kelsey Merritt is in the Philippines for the first time and what better way to show off the beauty of her homeland than bringing him to see its magnificent beaches.
Immediately after the fashion show where Conor Dwyer participated in over the weekend, Merritt wasted no time in flying with her boyfriend to El Nido, Palawan.
The couple took the 55-minute direct flight from Manila to see the destination’s famous powdery white beach and stunning limestone cliffs.
Based on her Instagram post, Merritt and Dwyer are currently staying in one of the luxury island resorts in El Nido.
“No one I’d rather be with,” Merritt wrote in the caption of their photo together.
In an interview with ABS-CBN Lifestyle, Dwyer said they have been saving up for this trip as they plan to have the best Philippine vacation.
“From Manila, we go to Palawan and then Boracay and then finishing in Siargao. I am a surfer so I think it’s only right that I check it out. Kels and I have been cold for months so we are excited to go to a warm island and her homeland. It’s pretty special,” he said.
Merritt and Dwyer, who have been together for almost a year now, first met in Costa Rica during another vacation.
