I intend to do staycation in June 2014 following my 11-month project with AARC (Ireland) providing technical assistance to DepEd in implementing public financial management reforms. It turned out to be a 7-day vacation however, since my parents were insistent in starting the journey, which is landtrip from our place in Surigao to Manila, driving our Toyota Innova.
|Two times we boarded the Roll on - Roll off boat, one in Lipata (Surigao)-Benit (Southern Leyte) and another in Allen (Northern Samar)-Matnog (Sorsogon)|
|Montenegro Liner, one of the Roll On - Roll Off (RORO) boats crossing the straits of Norther Samar and Sorsogon|
|That was sunset when we passed San Juanico Bridge|
|New tourist spot within Cagsawa Ruins|
|It was when we passed some municipalities in Albay when the beautiful Mayon Volcano showed herself to Papa Tantong and Mama Dulcing|
|We (Papa, Mama, Celoy our alternate driver, and Tiyo Mauro, my father's bro) made a sidetrip to Cagsawa Church Ruins|
