One of my earlier jobs brought me to various places in the country, especially the Visayas region. Being a Visayan myself, it was logical for the company to assign me in the implementation and monitoring of projects from Samar to Negros.
It was at first, exciting. I met a lot of people and I practically scoured the mountains of Samar, the beaches of Bohol and Cebu and the sugarlands of Negros. But the regularity of the trips (which could run for three weeks straight) eventually took its toll on my body. It became sooooooo tiring! I later hated the early morning trips to the airport and the sea trips no longer excited me. I felt so relieved when I changed job.
But now, having wallowed in the urban jungle of Manila for so long, I am beginning to yearn for some travel. And checking the Lakbayan map, I guess I really have to visit a lot more places. I still haven’t gone north – Ilocos, Batanes, Benguet. I now am lusting for an eco-tour of Palawan and a return to eye candy-filled Boracay. Would you believe, I have not even set foot at Puerto Galera? Pathetic, huh.
With the grade I got, I resolve to wander again in the next few months. I’m crossing my fingers here.
