Bacolod Guimaras Iloilo Trip Day 1

Mom used to say “Kaya ka pala gala kasi may nunal ka sa paa” / “The reason why you are always out is because of the mole on your foot.” That was like an old school saying, but I believed her. Since 2007, I have traveled to different places here in our country. Believe me, I still have a long list up to now. But as of the mean time, I plan not to travel too much for 2013. Usually I would be the first one to plan certain travels for different group of friends. Now, I am the one declining, haha! Only accepted two major out of towns because they are important, weddings of loved one always are! I guess, 5 years is enough for now and I would like to take things seriously.

So for now, let me share my last unforgettable travel experience for 2012. Our Bacolod, Guimaras, Iloilo Trip! This is a late post but I won’t forgive myself if I can’t blog this before the year ends. Just by looking at these photos, you can say, we really had a great time. And yes, you will notice I am always in or near the water bodies. 🙂

We left Manila around 4pm and landed Bacolod by 5pm. It was a quick trip, sad though because I was not able to get the seat near the window. My body feels tired since we came straight from night shift, but I CANNOT sleep, due to excessive excitement.

BGI Trip 2012 (4)Of course, first stop would be the “The Ruins”. One word “Breathtaking”! I cannot stop admiring how lovely it look. The driver said, “Too bad you missed the sunset, where you can really see the true beauty of the ruins”. I have to agree but you know, seeing it at night will also be one of the best things in life.
