I had to be at the airport at around 3:30AM as my flight was to leave at 6:30. Here is a photo I took as I was lining up to get checked in.
Leaving soon. I think about all of my friends and family that I will be leaving behind and I feel a bit sad. I just count my blessings and I am grateful for having spent 4 months where my old home was.
Up in the air on that long 11 hour flight.
Arrived in Vancouver finally. I'm so happy to be with Ron. He and I are family. It feels great to be home. This is a pivotal point in my life where I knew for sure where home is. My ties to my old country will always be there, but this is where I want to be. This is where I am happiest and feel most loved.
Manila was hot and humid. They had free wifi as a way to attract customers and so I hung out there. The heat of Manila is something that is really hard to get used to. I will miss my family and friends in the Philippines.
Crocodile skin feels clean and smooth, but still gives me a strange nervous feeling. I don't know why I find it a bit challenging to like reptiles. I'll try and like anyway. haha.
At the Palawan Bakers Hill. They have lots of pasties and yummy goodies.
Behind us is some rich guy's mansion.
This photo was taken in the afternoon. I wanted to try the zip line behind us but the city tour service kept on telling us everywhere we stopped "you only have 15-20 minutes". Kinda ruins the tour. Made us wish we should have just done the tour independently.
Heading to Sabang. Takes 2 hours to get there.
Arrived at the Sheridan Hotel.
Our first dinner at the Hotel.
They said the pool was closed at 9PM but I snuck in anyway. Oh this is just sooo good.
I could hear the ocean waves from the pool. The beach is close by.
a most wonderful time to meditate.
I slept a few hours and woke up early.
Nice cool morning.
I look forward to having breakfast there.
This is the building where we stayed.

Something about the sound of water that makes me feel so relaxed..

At noon I was already having my beer. How could I resist?

Went to a kubo restaurant for dinner. The free use of the guitar was added bonus.
