2011: A glimpse of the year that got me to travel

It’s a day after Christmas.  In a couple of days we’ll all bid goodbye to another year.  Before doing so, I’ll take a glimpse of the year that’s about to close. It has been a fruitful year. I pray that 2012 will be as fruitful as the last.
February 2011 rekindled the fire I have for traveling when my friends and I bought cheap round trip tickets to Cebu. We weren’t the usual travelers.  We didn’t have that much of experience in this kind of activities but the old trust-your-instinct kind of attitude worked.
March gave me the opportunity to fly.  It wasn’t my first to be in an airport but it certainly was my first to travel by air. Thanks to Airphil Express’ promo that I had the opportunity to see the sky and ride the wind via Airbus Industrie A320.
So my feet landed on the wet Cebu City on March 12, 2011. I got to taste the famous lechon Cebu!

I planned on going to Palawan last summer but did not have the opportunity.  No cheap ticket for me.
On the other hand, before summer ended, I booked a flight to Bohol! ’twas a birthday gift for myself. A little late pero ang sabi nga nila, huli man daw at magaling, maihahabol din!
August 20, 2011, my traveling feet landed in Tagbilaran City, Bohol!
Man-Made Forest in Bilar
September 04, 2011 – I walked a long line to Taal, Batangas, the home of the butterfly daggers and Barong Tagalog.
It was a very tiring walk…
The Basilica of St. Martin of Tours
September 2011 – After Batangas, I got tricked to going to Tanay, Rizal.  The two-hour butt numbing ride was worth it!
Batlag Falls after a heavy down pour
 Daranak and Batlag Falls in Tanay, Rizal was my last trip for the year. I was planning on going to Bicol during the Thanksgiving break last November. I was working on reaching the province via Bicol Express, the country’s railway system. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the right time.
2011 did not get me to a lot of places but it sure inspired me get to a lot more on 2012!
Cheers to the year of the rabbit and hello 2012 Dragon! More travels to come!
