Cebu...Gateway to the Visayas

I was able to avail of cebu pacific's promotional fare from cagayan de oro to cebu for my parents which costs me only P400.+ one way from cagayan de oro to cebu. Since the family event was already scheduled June, I bought the ticket last February. I also availed of the same fare for me and my daughters. Also with me is my dear mother-in-law who helped me and hubby settle some of our issues.
Every time I get to be in Cebu, I try to find time to visit the Sto. Niño Basilica, light candles and say my prayers and thanksgiving. Back when I was still doing my review at San Carlos, I promised that If i pass the board exam I will make it a point to visit Sto Nino yearly. If I am unable to go to cebu, i will hold a get-together in our house in honor of the Sto Nino Fiesta every January. And so, straight from Mactan Airport we took an airport taxi which i paid around 295 to get us to the Basilica.

My kids are fortunate enough to have experience air travel so many time considering the cost. I experience air travel only with my first job straight out of college. Both my daughters where not even 2 years old when they had their first plane ride. Hubby loves going to places that can be reached by cars so we are used to travelling at night. We spent christmas of 2008 on the road travelling to Zamboanga. And if there is a bonding activity that binds us closer, it is travel. And so, I must always set aside a budget for travel. My kids are comfortable at airports, at gasoline stations for our toilet needs and at hotels. Really, travelling allows us to appreciate God's creation first hand.

Cebu is a good travel destination if you want to reach as many places in the visayas as possible. Virtually, everything is accessible. Bohol for one is just a fastcraft away. Most of the islands in fact are just a short boatride a way. And hey, don't forget to visit the Sto. Niño.
