So in 2010, I went to Tacloban with Charm. We had an awesome time food tripping! I never really finished blogging about that trip though. Blame it on my turtle slow internet connection.
This year, I decided to take Ethel. She was so jealous of all the resto hopping that Charm and I did, so we did just that, when we went there. Originally the plan was, to go to Biri in Samar to see those magnificent rock formations. This is part of the reason why the trip was 4 days. Upon preparing the itinerary though, I found out that from Tacloban, Biri is an 8 hour trip with at least 3-4 stops. I imagined totally freaking out from stress of hopping from van to boat to a habal habal motorbike (that I totally do not ever want to do again after my Davao trip a couple of years ago). Not to mention that the place had no electricity from 6pm to 6am. Ethel would totally die. Haha! I might as well kill her.
So to avoid the unnecessary stress, we decided to just stay in Tacloban and just go around the city.
I'll be chopping the blogging of this Tacloban trip per restaurant and activity. This one is just the airport part, I just really wanted to post the photos 'coz I was trying out the 50mm lens that my beautiful cousin Belle gave me, a week before this trip, just before she left for Vegas. I already love it!
I totally need a pedicure. The last one I got from Rob, almost broke my nails. They gave me cheap nailpolish! grrr.
We always try to hand carry all our stuff to avoid paying the check in fee. Need to save for the numerous trips this year.
This is Ethel worrying about work. Me, I left my laptop at work. Hihi. That felt sooo good!
Cebu Pacific is love! Except for the usually delayed flights, I love Cebu Pacific because they have taken me to so many places. So thank you! I hope they would improve though. Time is very important especially to those on business trips.
We were totally bored on the flight to Tacloban so we took a lot of photos.
I love seating by the window. When I'm not freaking out from the turbulence, I love looking outside the window and just thanking God for creating such a beautiful world.
This bed of clouds is just so incredible. Sunsets are the best time to fly. The colors you see up there are so surreal.
Just before touch down in tacloban.
Don't you just love sunsets? I will always love sunsets.
Just before dark, we landed in Tacloban without a hotel reservation. I called at least 5 hotels before we left Manila and all were fully booked. I wasn't worried though, we went there to relax and eat for four days. We can sleep in a cafe' for all I care.
Watch out for more of my Tacloban adventure!
