Would you believe, it was my first ever airplane ride? Yes, finally, Cebu Pacific got the chance to fly me. Although this was my first time ever on a plane, I had once ridden on a helicopter to Batangas with my friend Matt and his family. And even though our plane was delayed for 15 minutes, more or less, I waited patiently. Of course, I wouldn't let this first time pass without a picture of myself with the plane.
We landed in Cagayan de Oro airport. From there, the van from the Monastery picked us up. It was about 2 and 1/2 hours from the airport to the Monastery, with bumpy roads and some parts being repaired. Along the way, we saw Ateneo de Cagayan or more known as Xavier University, their local Motorela (from Karitela), and the "sabit boys", who come from CDO bringing water up the mountains.
We also passed by the Sumilao Falls, which is all natural. When we passed it, water was flowing strong, unlike weeks ago, when they said it wasn't. You can see this beauty from the road, but you would want to park your car and get down to get a better view of the falls.
Part 2 of the Trip will follow soon.
