Travelling in the Tropics

Since yesterday the temperature’s at night and early morning doesn’t go above 12 degrees Celsius (54 F) and tomorrow it will be 9 degrees then on Thursday it will further drop a notch lower at 8 degrees (46 F). Then the rest of the week will be just like that and it makes me want to just stay on bed or travel to the tropics. It is indeed chilly inside the house and there’s no furnace to at least make it warm.

This made me to keep tracking of the remaining days before D-Day. I actually have a scheduled travel for a vacation in Cebu, Philippines either on the first or third of March this year and I am hoping that it isn’t that hot there yet. It will also be a perfect time to try and take more snapshots for the 600D and how well it goes. This reminds me in our vacation last year (July) when I wasn’t able to take more pictures as I want to since the battery of my PowerShot S400 will just die down so quick and there’s seems to have some issues too in the memory card. But this time around I will no longer be deprived of that opportunity to practice shooting more pictures in Cebu and probably Palawan too.

We don’t have descent pictures of his celebration and most are blurry including the customized cake that angers my wife as it wasn’t the one she expected to have. Below was the cake and the tarp used in his birthday.

Northern Cebu – First Road Trip After 2 Years

Travelling is exciting and full of adventure more so when it is your first time in that place. Whether it is by land, sea or air there’s always inconvenience along the way and careful planning could mean the difference between disaster and tragedy less trip. It is always a headache when it comes to making plans but it is not that difficult as well because there are plenty of guides that you’ll find in the internet.

When I had my recent vacation last July, I went to my father’s place and travel by air for almost 10 hours. You can already imagine the inconvenience sitting on long haul flight in a cramped economy seat especially that I have long legs were movements are very limited. Not to mention the high health risk of developing Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). But you know what, one time I had a superb experience sitting in the first class. Or should I say lying down? But that will be in a separate post so I can chronicle what happened that day.

I usually don’t drive on the first few days upon arrival because I want to observe and note the changes (if there is) in road signs and directions. The trip was smooth since we left at 7 in the morning. Then after awhile I spotted a very familiar name on the billboard at the roadside. Refer in the photo to the right.
