Alright, let me share about one place in The Philippines I traveled 2 months before I left the country. This place is a Spanish inspired resort in the Island of Luzon 4 to 5 hours travel from the capital Manila by car or air conditioned bus.

This travel is one of the unforgettable memories of my life tried to escape the busy streets of Makati city- The New York of the Philippines where I worked as Spanish Trainer in a BPO company.  The plan started when I knew that I will be leaving the country in few weeks time after I received notifications from my employer that I should prepare packing up my things for departure. I contacted my long time friend Ria who is also a my schoolmate during my high school years.

The plan took after an ambushed preparations with other friends. We drove to the place like strangers but a smile on our faces. We rented a cheap house  that costed Php 3000 or 300 Saudi Riyals for one night, bought some Sea foods and other soda drinks. We arrived at 2:30 in the afternoon with excitement and it was like we are attending a Hollywood party. We went to the resort and paid reasonable entrance fees. We toured by a local guide that speaks Tagalog(national language) inside the resort with different Spanish houses.

I love camera. I love taking pictures and complimenting each others pictures with different angle when I am with my friend Ria. Seriously, we are in common when it comes to this, LOL. She is working abroad as an expat too! but not in KSA.

Along with happy moments I spent with them, I wished that time “I will definitely go back to this place”.

I was not home sick. I believe travel is a vast experience. A travel that I can still remember no matter where I am.
