IN PHOTOS: Kelsey Merritt and Olympian boyfriend tour the Philippines’ beaches

After a hectic few months for Kelsey Merritt (from the Victoria Secret runway to a spot in Sports Illustrated), the opportunity to come back home and take the ultimate beach getaway was too good to pass up on. With Olympic swimmer (and boyfriend) Conor Dwyer in tow, this model has mapped out a non-stop itinerary. The pair made their first stop in El Nido, Palawan and are currently in Boracay. Afterward, they’ll be making the trip to Siargao.

Before even hitting the beaches or taking in the sun, Kelsey had one thing on her mind: street food!

Conor shared that the couple had actually been saving up for this vacation since they wanted to maximize their time here. He told ABS-CBN:

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.

As if that wasn’t enough to make us jealous, just check out these next photos where everything about them is perfect:
