This is a trip that I never imagined will push through. Bagyong Falcon is about to hit the country and I am in Dagupan City, Pangasinan last Thursday. I asked some of my travel blogger friends if the scheduled trip to Puerto Princesa will still push through. Most of us were hesitant because of the weather. When they finally confirmed that the weather in Puerto Princesa is good, I decided to take a bus trip from Dagupan at 6:30PM. Despite the heavy rain in some areas, i arrived safely in our house at 11PM.

I didn’t sleep during the whole duration of the bus trip. I didn’t sleep at home too even if i still have enough time to take a nap. I did some online tasks then packed my luggage at 4am. I once asked my companions if the trip will still push through since it’s raining hard that time. With the confirmation, I took a taxi to NAIA Terminal 3 to meet up with Robbie, Winston, Eric, Anton, Rochelle and JC with the staff of AirPhil Express (Line, Nicole, Mike and Brian). It’s not my first time to visit Puerto Princesa, but what made this trip exciting is that i’ll be enjoying the whole tour with some of my favorite travel companions. Also, our itinerary is loaded with activities and i’ve never been to some of the places listed. Exciting!
Wondering where I was last weekend? I, together with travel bloggers Anton, Melo, Eric, Ferdz, Dong and Winston went to Microtel Puerto Princesa for a fun-filled break. I was in the ‘City Within The Forest’ months ago and that was the most relaxing trip I had. Revisiting Puerto Princesa still gives me that excitement to explore and take pictures. I am the only female blogger in the group. I’m glad that Norsan and Jewel of Microtel were with us 🙂

Though it was my second time to go there, the trip was pretty memorable because of the following firsts: 1) My first Microtel Puerto Princesa accommodation 2.) My first AirPhilExpress flight 3.) My first time to see Nagtabon Cove 4.) My first time to bond with Anton, Ferdz and Dong Â 5.) My first diverted flight experience (and accidental Hopia/Noodle Party).
Four months ago, Ada, Jenny and I went to Puerto Princesa, Palawan for a 4D/3N vacation. We booked the flight as early as November 2009 because we wanted to take advantage of the promo. Maire booked too, but her work schedule didn’t permit her to go 🙁

So the three of us went there without concrete plans at all. I can say that among my trips, this is the first time ever wherein we only booked for a hotel room hours before our flight, we didn’t have any itinerary (all we know is that the Underground River is located there LOL!) and we simply want it to be spontaneous. No plans, no whatevers.
