Always Bring Identification Card

My brothers, cousin, SIL and nephew are now traveling on vessel on their way to the province of our grandparents.  They were so excited because they will be able to meet our relatives who lives there and relatives from other parts of the country because of important matters.  Yes, my brothers and cousin are traveling because they have business to do  on the land of our grandparents that is for sale.  Since my mother is dead, my older brother is representing her.  The younger brother is joining because he wanted his wife and son to have a bit bonding too and for them to meet other relatives.

Their travel encountered problem because the brother did not bring his Identification card.  The ticketing outlet is only give tickets to those who have ID’s for safety reason.  The younger brother giving up and just decided to go back, but the older brother finds a way to produced an ID card.  Now they are boarding on the vessel on their way to Bohol.  The younger brother learned a lesson of what happened.  It is really important to always bring your ID card wherever you go for you might need it in an unexpected moment.

Anyways, thanks God all went well.  I hope that they will have safe travel and will arrive safely.  And come back home safe.  God bless!

Traveling with kids

After one night and two days of travel, we finally arrived safely at the province of my parents.  I am traveling with my father, older brother and two nephews.  I really love to travel, but this time I am not enjoying it that much.  Indeed traveling with kids will make you exhausted especially if it is a long travel and you have to ride in a bus and vessel.  Transferring from bus to vessel is very tiring.  In addition to that, you are carrying you luggage.  How is that!?  I prefer to travel alone or with my father with me.  Fewer worries I must say.

But still it is a wonderful experience for me.  Even though I did not get enough sleep because of the kids.  Experience that will be added in my memory and will treasure those memories forever.  Our travel is very much tiring but seeing the nephews amazed of the things they have seen while traveling will make the travel fun and exciting.  Anyways, I am so thankful to God for we arrived safely to our destination.  Are kids are having fun playing with their cousins and enjoying the white sand beach this morning.  More memories to remember with this two kiddos in our seven days vacation.

He says yes finally

During holy week, the family prefers to stay at home, take part in the church activities, and resting.  Sometimes, I thought of us going somewhere to rest and relax but the father didn’t like the idea.  He is so against it.  He would say, instead of enjoying in this Lenten season, it is best to repent and meditate.  The father has a point.  Holy week is the time to repent and reflect.  We can have our resting and relaxing somewhere any time though.  The sister and her family will be going to the province of his husband this holy week.  And she is inviting me to go with them.  I am happy because I really want to travel and unwind.  I am so stress because of my brother.  Going to the province is a good idea.

I told the father about the sister’s invitation.  Unfortunately he is not allowing me to go.  I felt really sad because I really want to go to rest.  I asked him why, but he will not give me any answer.  I did not stop asking his permission.  I guess he feels irritated by me and say yes.  Woohoo!  I will be going out of the city for this first time.  Thanks to my father for saying yes.  I can pack my things now.

To bring with me while traveling

Last summer, the family went to the parent’s province for summer vacation. It was a long travel for us because we have to ride in the bus for more than seven hours and boarding in the ship for another seven hours. I like to travel especially riding in the ship, but riding in the bus for hours is not so good. I am having some problem in my neck because I am not so comfortable sitting on the bus for hours. Since I have plans to travel this year again, I want to find neck pillow specials to bring with me while traveling. It would be best to bring neck pillow to support my neck while riding in the bus for hours.

Anyways, do you like to travel? Do you bring with you a neck pillow too?

Long hours of travel

Because we missed him so much, the sister decided to visit our younger who lives far away from us.  Since the sister does have two motorcycle, we decided to just use it to get to the place of our brother.  I am not used to riding on the motorcycle because I am so scared for the possible accidents.  I have lots of negatives thought when it comes to riding on the motorcycle.  But for my brother’s sake, I took the courage to ride on the motorcycle.  It was a long travel and very scary for me because we have encounter trucks, buses, and many other vehicles.  Plus the road is so slippery because it was raining when we went there.

I was like holding my breath because I am so scared.  The very long travel was so stressful for me because I am not relax while riding.  However, it was well paid off because we get to see our younger brother.  We stayed there for 3 hours before deciding to go back home.  We did have our wonderful chit-chats.  It’s been a while when the last time we talk.  Seeing him last Sunday makes me smile and feel relieved because I can see in his face that he is happy with his  life and his decisions.  We just wish him good luck and good health always.
