The trip to CalbayogPosted: December 27, 2012
Lesson learned for the nth time. Gotta buy airline tickets to Calbayog next December at a very early date. Tickets to Mister Layam’s hometown was priced at over 6k per person by 1st week of December, my goodness! So we had only two choices left — the 24 hour bus travel (the roro bus), or via Tacloban airport. Of course we chose the latter.
But I don’t think we’d be travelling to Calbayog via Tacloban again. My butt hurt so much, we were all hungry, and the Little Lady was very stressed, poor baby. We left Manila last Saturday at 10:15 AM and arrived at Calbayog at about 5 PM, when it should have just been just an hour and 15 minutes.
Looking at the bright side, it was still a good travel experience. The Little Lady and I got to see the San Juanico bridge for the first time. She got to see a lot of nature — the mountains, the ocean, and the fields. And of course, we got to take pictures too. So I guess this year’s choice of travel mode is still worth it.

She finally agreed to sit on her seat, not on my lap. Haha
She drew the airplane with the stairs as soon as she settled down!
Good thing we brought her Mega Sketcher, she didn’t notice her popping ears.
Arrived at Tacloban City after an hour. (Check out little me!)
