Bacolod Guimaras Iloilo Trip Day 3

At 5 am my alarm went off, since I slept with my swimsuit on, I was ready in a few minutes with hopes of catching the sunrise. Sad to say, it was raining and I ended up having 2 cups of coffee. Morning talks were good, Hilda and Gen were early birds too, it was a big plus because our background music were songs of “The Creed”. I still wished I was able to watch them live but that’s okay. We talked about certain things, from real life experiences up to some old boring stuff. While waiting for the others to wake up, we decided to tour the area and my oh my, we found this wonderful cave! Too bad I still don’t have the photos with me, still need to grab them.

Back in our hotel room, my feet trembling due to excessive swimming and walking. I need to put my legs up. If I can only sleep this way, I could have done that.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Green

When I learned about the Weekly Photo Challenge being GREEN, I knew that my Bacolod-Guimaras-Iloilo Trip last weekend would be perfect.

Green is the color of emeraldsjade, and growing grass. In the continuum of colors of visible light it is located between yellow and blue. Green is the color most commonly associated with nature and the environmental movementIslamspringhope and envy. – Wikipedia

Green was everywhere, from the food that we ate, the beautiful surroundings that we saw, antique items and old houses that we have visited. Ending my year with a memorable trip with friends was a great idea. Promise to share a detailed post (and more photos) about our trip soon, for the mean time, enjoy this gallery!
