this is not me okay!..
Life is truly beautiful, if you know how to live it and it's not meant to be taken TOO seriously because no one gets out alive anyway. In the end, we'll all come back to a pile of dust vanished and forgotten (well, for most of us that is). While we're young, we might as well experiment and commit as much mistakes (that's not too major and irrevocable) in life so that we still have enough time to find solutions and learn from it and not committing the same mistakes again as we get older.
Life's a gift, enjoy it. We might be able to live to a ripe old age to make the most of it and we'll eventually realize how precious it is when it's already too late. Wallowing in self-pity is definitely a no-no! choose to follow your heart. Think out of the box!
So I dare to travel ALONE. why? because it's something that I haven't done before and I just wanted to give it a try. I want to know what it feels like to travel alone. So, I set off at dawn under the inky sky (time check 3:30 am baby!). I took off from Lapu-lapu city and reached the port of Danao after 1 hour and 45 mins. of travel. From the circumference, I had to ride the barge going to the port of Consuelo with a minimal fare of P180 or P150 if you present a valid student's id.
2 hours later, I arrived at Consuelo, Camotes with its seemingly rustic views and provincial atmosphere. It's very peaceful and serene and the sun is shining beautifully with a wave of searing heat. The only thing on me agenda here is to chill out with my music. So I set off to Santiago Bay. Mind you, it's hard to get a cheap transportation on this island. My tip: Go rent a motorcycle for the whole duration of your trip for P500 exclusive of gasoline that's P65 per liter. Reaching Santiago bay, I grabbed my blanket and stayed under their warm huts and just chilling out. Pure R&R and I also got to meet Stephanie, 31 y.o and of Swiss decent and she's traveling alone for like 8 months jumping from country to another. too bad I didn't have a picture taken with her in case you don't believe me. But she's real. I didn't feel like taking much pictures because no one is there to take pictures of me and the beach. I'm really just after the experience. Enough said.
to travel alone. EVER. EVER. EVER. I don't ever want to live alone. EVER. EVER. EVER. Never travel alone, you'll only resent it. Another thing that I learned is that, no matter how beautiful the place is, no matter how gorgeous, you can never find complete happiness and contentment with a place or with a group of people because everything is temporary, the joy and laughter. The only thing that's permanent in this world is God. Our home is not in this world but it's with God. The perfect dream is to live with Him in His kingdom and not of pleasure and places of this world. Happiness, Joy, Love and Contentment can only be found in GOD. I did feel lonely about my whole trip. However, I learned.
Next time, when I hit the beach. I'll make sure to go with friends so we can check off every to-do list on top!
