Traveling with friends has its own dose of goodness and sometimes, worse-ness.. 🙂 I’d like to make a post for this one since I’ve been going to places with my friends lately. Even years back, I noticed that I really am into group traveling. For me, it’s much fun especially when your friends are crazy fun earthlings and travel junkies as well. Truly it is a good feeling to have someone accompany you during long hours of travel especially by land. They also are a big help in shouldering your trip expenses (plus when in times of “wallet bankruptcy”, you have a friend you can turn to. lol. ) You can easily kill boredom and idle hours by merely horsing around with them, cam whoring, sharing non-sense AND corny jokes, and laughing out loud. Most of the time, yeah, it’s just pure non-sense but that’s where the fun begins! 😛
Here’s a couple of pictures:
This photo was taken in Albay with my highschool classmates. We parade rest for the Mayon Volcano (which is kinda shy to show up that day because of the bad weather). “Parade Rest” pose because they were the former model platoon.. hehe You’ll notice who’s lousy and not. 😛 From L-R: Erwin, Jepoy, Misael, Arden, Jhen, Richard, Bebz and Lei. It seems Bea took this photo. 😛
Our first time in Boracay except for Zaida. Photo was taken last October 2009 when I still didn’t know that 4300php for a round trip airfare is expensive! That’s a learning from the past! 🙂 Now, I can only get that for 400php round trip all in 😛 See you in November! 🙂 From L-R: Jepoy, Boggs, Harriet, Mitch, Zaida and Xtn. Gerald took this photo.
This was the first time that most of my friends meet each other (I’m the common denominator). And as always, I planned this summer getaway. 😛 From L-R: Boggs, Lace, Harriet, Mitch, Nelson, Edison and Me!
What’s good when the crowd is lesser, you can own the beach! That’s what we did on a Monday of May 2007. Running, jumping and pure beach bumming until your skin itch. 🙂
Even if you’re not in a big group, you can still enjoy your friends’ company as long as they’re up for anything – even if it’s mountain climbing instead of beach bumming. Yeah, that’s what happened when we explored Iloilo just last March. With Rodem and Gelow, Jan Dee took the photo.
Having a friend who lives in Baguio is an advantage and an easy pass to Penagbenga Festival. Aside from showing you around the city, he sure knows the logistics and you won’t worry about getting to your lodging. Speaking of lodging, when some turn of events didn’t happen as you want it to be, you might end up having a good night sleep in their house as well. 😛 Instant and free accommodation to top it all off! haha Big big thanks to Irman.
Before 2010 ends, I planned to kick off 2011 by planning my trips in various places in the PH. First was Ilocos in January because of my itching desire to see Pagudpud (and also because I found a cheap RT airfare via CebuPac bound for Laoag).
Some noticed that I’m always with friends. A lot of my FB photos can attest to that. But I also want to try traveling alone some other day. I sure think that it’s a different experience. Might not be as fun as group travels but fun in a different way. Less hassles when it comes to making urgent decisions. It’s something I’m gonna look forward to. Any suggestions? 🙂
