Halu, Cebu! (Part 4)

DAY 3

Happy birthday to me!  ^__^

My plan from the previous night had been to wake up early, go to the Basilica Minore for my birthday mass, go back to the hotel and take a taxi to the airport. However, after taking my sweet time in reconsidering my options, I ended up packing my stuff, checking out of the hotel, missing the last morning mass, having a Jollibee pancake breakfast and taking a taxi to the airport. And that was how I found that line of taxi where I should’ve gone to when I first arrived. I bet they were the cheaper ones.

Since I already did a web check in back at the hotel, I was able to check in faster than the other AirPhil passengers and buy some souvenir shirt for Moche and me. I even went to the small Duty Free shop where I bought some more pasalubongs. And while waiting for boarding time, I discovered this nook at the airport where SmartBro sponsored these Galaxy tabs, to be used by the waiting passengers for free. It was so cool of them!

All in all, my stay in Cebu is an experience to remember. Although I was not able to do a lot of things, I still think that it was a total success. I learned a lot of things about the Philippines, life and myself. I will definitely travel alone again, and perhaps to another country.

However, when I do go back to Cebu, it will be with Moche and we will do the Tower 5 to 3 zipline and have a fun day tour at Shangri-la Mactan.
